Personal Heater

Kyrie shuddered as the wind's howling increased, her shivering matching the boys as they huddled under the blankets. The weather people had predicted a very cold upcoming storm, and while she's lived through chilly winters, this one was a complete surprise when the temperatures plummeted at nightfall. An additional unwanted surprise was the heating system failing at the worst time, thus all of them bundled together.

"Hey, what's this? We don't need another giant ice pack."

Blessed and wonderful heat, as Nero's body always ran warmer. Even with the smell of cigarettes from Nico, Kyrie and the boys snuggled closer.

A/N: From the official Inktober 2019 prompt, "freeze".
