Too long to be a drabble, too short to be a ficlet

Prompt: Lipstick
Fandom: The Chronicles of Narnia
Character: Susan Pevensie
Word Count: 134

It isn’t that Susan doesn’t remember Narnia. She remembers being a queen, being an adult far too well. She remembers the body she used to have—long and lean and graceful—and wishes her gangly, awkward body would transform quickly into it. She cannot have the trappings of royalty here, but she can rush towards being an adult. Susan has been barred from Narnia, but will rebuild her life here, where she need not worry about losing all that she has worked for. It isn’t about rushing to the silliest age, whatever the others may say, but about reclaiming what was lost. This world is grey compared to Narnia, and Susan will take splashes of color wherever she can get them, even if finding them on her lips causes the others to chide her.
