Midwinter Prompt #17 - "Avoidance" (American Girl)  
Title:Avoidance
Author: N_E_Star
Prompt: #17 - A Pile of Wood
Fandom: American Girl
Character: benjamin davidson
Rating & Warnings: PG
Word Count: 100
Summary: He needs to not be inside.


He chops wood, piles and piles of it.

He doesn't need to, it's not part of his duties, but if he wasn't out here swinging the ax until his shoulders ache and his body cries for rest then...

Then he would be expected to be in the house, playing chess with Mr. Merriman or talking about news from around the colonies.

And some where in all that would be Lissie – interjecting her opinions on the fighting or offering up advice on his chess strategy – moving around the room, filling it with her smile, with her presence.

So he chops wood.

American Girl fic! I love Ben/Felicity, and this is exactly how I can imagine Ben, working out his frustrations about not being able to fight, and his growing interest in Felicity... So lovely!

(Although isn't Felicity's nickname "Lissie"?)

Really loved this!

God, it's been forever since I've read the books. Changing it now, thanks!

Oh, I haven't read them in ages, either. I'm surprised I remember. Did you see the movie a few years back? OMG, sooo cute. Ben is a hottie. I watched it with my mother-in-law and she was totally shipping them with me, LOL.
