Title: Angel's Demons
Warnings: Violence, implied past child abuse
Word Count: 100


When Lily gets angry, she gets angry.

Everyone knows that Lily is an angel; in her floating, light-colored dresses, she even looks like one. She always says 'please' and 'thank you', she happily gives away the bigger share, and her words brighten anyone as surely and sincerely as her smile.

No one knows that she was expelled twice, the first time for bruising a boy's face and shoving his favorite teddy in his mouth.

Lily represses her demon's stirrings, sick and terrified. But the demon has power—and though she can't remember why, she always feels like she needs it.


Notes: Inspired by the prompts Crane White #15 (A wicked wind will blow your ribbons from your curls) and Bittersweet #2 (memories) at [community profile] rainbowfic, "desperate" and the theme "incite" on this bingo card, "Impulsive" at [community profile] fiction_drabbles, this at [community profile] daily_prompt, and "mirrored" at [community profile] dailyprompt.
