Who: River and Deadpool
What: Dancing in the rain.
Where: A quiet park in New York.
When: After dark.
River, AKA Hot-Broad-In-Boots, had left the apartment for the first time since...since...she couldn't remember when. She'd figured out how to have food sent directly to her apartment so that she didn't even need to go to the grocery store, and she had enough money to keep her going for a long time.
But she could only stay cooped up for so long. After dark, she put on a blue shift that seemed iridescent when the light caught it, and donned the pair of black combat boots she'd shown up in. Then she tromped off to the park, pirouetting under streetlights, suddenly not caring who saw.
Men with fish heads and briefcases...women and their tumor children. She started to remember why being in cities wasn't always so fun. But she made it to the park intact, just as it started to rain. The weather stations had predicted a clear night.
She sat down on a bench clear of the trees and caught raindrops in her palm, knocking her boots together. Waiting. She was very patient.
