Long Way HomeTITLE: Long Way Home
AUTHOR: Hekate Lesedi
NOTES: As comes as no surprise, Tangled is the property of Disney and Walt Disney Animation Studios.
This one-shot came about as I was watching Tangled. I noted Rapunzel's father's tear, and I wondered what was going through his head in that instant. His wife seemed to be trying to stay strong and supportive, but he seemed to be on the verge of crumbling. I wondered why that would be, and I came to the conclusion that he may be dying, and he's realizing there is a very real chance he will never get to see his daughter again.
This fic does not take into account the events in Tangled Ever After.
I’m using the names given the King, Queen, and kingdom on the Fan Wiki.
Long Way Home
A warm summer breeze fluttered through the open window where a tall, broad man with gray-streaked brown hair and a neatly trimmed, equally graying
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
Keep in Touch!
