Roylsden #96


The train roared at us. I closed my eyes before the impact.
Then... silence, broken by her voice
"It's gone."
Trembling, I opened my eyes. Only the grey mist swirled silently around us.
"You have witnessed it. Remember well. Now, I move on."
Take me, please -
"No. Day and night meet but never dwell together. It is time for you, too, to return to your people."
I can return?
She hugged me and then, like the remnants of a tremulous dream, there was a shadowed silhouette, perhaps that of an eagle, becoming one with the mist.
And she was gone.

    Incredible stuff, Drew! It’s so surreal, like the worst nightmares. You’ve certainly given us all lots to process with these. Exciting!
