Though she struggled, there was not enough strength in her to win out against the troll’s grip. When she made to move her hands and bring the needles to the wall, Kanaya squeezed her wrists painfully tight, and her fingers were seized up in a spasm that made her drop them. Before she could call them back, Kanaya folded her fingers closed and held them fast. They stood, captured and restraining, and stared at each other.
“I had wondered if you were truly faster than me,” Kanaya said. “I suppose this means I can add another fact to the rumors about the brigandrifts. Humans are quite slow.”
“Let me go.”
“Admit that I am not a mindless killer.”
“I will do no such thing. You have nearly broken my wrists and are holding me captive.”
“But I am not killing you.”
“I have a hard time believing you’re anything but a step away from doing so.”
She stared, brows drawn tight together, and did not move. “And what will you do if I let you go?”
Another scoff. “You won’t.”

Giftart for Shinji. I’ve been wanting to draw something from Frontierstuck for a while now because it’s such an awesome AU fic. And I’m also trying to be ‘artsy’ here by using the Chalk brush. I failed the latter. Also, hands are really hard to draw!
The papers I was drawing on were actually brown in real life. They were not textures.
Can be found in my Tumblr
