Drabble: Lullaby (Sucker Punch, Blondie/Rocket, PG-13)

Title: Lullaby
Info: Sucker Punch, asylum!verse. Blondie/Rocket. PG-13.

Blondie has the sweetest voice of all the girls. It’s only on the bad days that she gets cat calls and gnashing and pillows hurled in her direction for her soft melodies at dusk. (They call her Blondie because that is what the men say, laughing, between dark noises, behind closed doors.) Rocket doesn’t have the nightmares (the knives, like flashes of lightning), sometimes, when she wraps herself in the scratchy sheets and lets Blondie’s songs settle down over her like thick snow. She asks once, Where do they come from? She remembers the right words to say, but doesn’t recognize her voice. Blondie has the sweetest voice of all the girls, and the saddest story. They can see it, sometimes, looking into her eyes. Rocket is the only one who doesn’t look away.
