Remix: The Hard Prayer (The Sacrificial Wolf Remix) [Helo, Sharon, 100 Words, Rated PG] by paperflowered
The weather on Caprica is as capricious as the planet's name suggests. Sometimes the sunlight glows white, and the colors of the earth are radioactive and brilliant. Other times the sky hides her face behind tempestuous clouds and the water pounds down in sheets.
That's what Helo's stomach feels like, when he finds out who - what - Sharon is. Uncertainty gnaws at him when he looks at her face. When the gods send the blessed rain, he lifts his face to the sky and prays the hardest prayer of all - that he'll be able to kill her when he has to.
