I have just discovered tonight a new website.
With Short story blog competitions.
The subject is Elemental!
Elemental. My subject!
And the deadline is tonight!
250 words max
So I wrote up something.
Here it is:
She walks on the asphalt. Hard, hot, black.
Toward the blond sand. Grainy. Soft. Lukewarm. Malleable.
It is better.
Towards the sea. Blue. Fluid. Cool.
People still stares.
She is naked after all.
She enters his realm.
He is lifting her up at long last.
He surrounds her. Caresses her. Every inch of her body. Then holds her still just for a moment.
A low groan comes from his throat.
Then he pushes her away.
Then pulls her in.
Come, he begs. Are you with me YET?
She breathes in. Her pores, her eyes, her lungs slowly fill with the fluid.
Her body exults. Her chest begins to expand. The fog in her mind clears.
She explodes outward.
I am now.
The Deep once more.
