Drabble #70 Falling Asleep

For the seventh hour I fall to my sleep. I float around and miss all of my dreams. The mournful feeling in my chest cause a stir as I lay unrest. A little light comes to me and takes me on. To my new awake, I now live with God.

Drabble #66 When Rain Falls

As the rain pours my soul soothes with the thought that you may feel this bliss too. I close my eyes and hear the sounds of the droplets. The heaven’s shower connect you with me. I’ll love you for eternity. And as I say this my mind lifts as the sun lights the sky. Where the rain fell the green of life awakes. I think of you being here on this picture perfect day.

In for the Rain: Short Stories, A Little Light

A light glimmered in the distance. The goddess who sat off and stared watched as it closed it. It was too pure to not look at. It was a light that captured her. It stopped just beyond the world. As she watched it she then motioned for it but it would no come.

“A lost soul then…”

She eyed it softly for a few moments before deciding to go it herself.

A warmth about it made her nearly weep.

“You seem to have been a beautiful girl.”

She held the spirit of the young woman.

“It must have been awful for you to stray so far in fear.” She looked deep into the light. “ Yet you hold such a love. It is a shame you are here. Your light stuck in that state is too cruel.”

She continued to look.

“And yet you seem as if you could awake at any moment.”

She sat the light on the chair which she sat. She walked a bit away from her. Thinking to herself she wondered what it would mean to keep her here.

“A name is of no use to you.” She said as she returned. “I have no qualms of releasing you, but dropping you seems so cruel.”

The light began to shine a brilliant color.

“ It seems you are called somewhere.” She picked up the light. “ May I will take you there.”

And with that she lifted the light and traveled with slight haste.

She held her as if she was dear. Something of a warmth filled her as she did. It was strange but she felt a bit at peace herself caring her.

“It calls you here…” she was then stopped by a feeling. “ Yet this is as far as I go it seems.”

“I don’t want to release you… but I will let you go as you are called.”

She watched as the light faded and her form began to change. While she did not awake, she seemed so serene. It was the most pleasant thing the goddess has seen.

“He really does love you. You live here now… goodbye.”

In for the Rain: Short Stories, The Girl who Lost her Words

The one who sat there always intrigued me. She was sometimes so still she seemed frozen. I often wondered what was in her mind. As time past I felt familiar with her. She sometimes glanced in my direction. Her eye were always distant but lovely all the same. All I want from her is to see her smile.

Debra walked past that spot again. She looked around toward a near by bench.

“I hope I can sit near her.” She mumbled to herself.

She watched the crowd as they went through the park. It was a lot busier today even for a Saturday.

She sighed to herself.

I might not see her with this crowd.

Debra fidgeted in her seat. She expected to see her by now. She checked her watch.

“Great…” Debra mumbled.

She felt like an idiot waiting there so frustrated.

She got up fro her spot and walked a bit into the crowd.

Just then she saw her just beyond her vision. She turned to watch her.

Many thought about how lovely she is raced through her mind. It wasn’t long before she realized that she was headed to the spot she just left.

Wait!

Debra blushes profusely.

Did she see me there! That’s not where she usually sits! Was she avoiding me!?

She began to spiral in thought.

“Are you alright, miss?”

Debra snapped from her thoughts. She looked around to she a young man standing there. He looked concerned. She immediately blushed again.

“Oh yeah, I’m fine.”

“Are you sure? You seem very disoriented.”

Debra glances at the young woman who was now looking. She immediately wanted to sink into the ground.

“N-No, I’m fine. I’ll just go sit down.”

With that she half sprinted to the bench and sat down next to the young woman.

“You seem foolish.”

Debra was taken aback by the sudden words.

Foolish!?

She looked at her and saw a seriousness that surprised her.

Oh great… she really thinks I’m foolish…

The young woman turned and looked off into the distant again.

Debra felt exasperated.

“Don’t look to much into it.” The young woman said as she looked off.

Debra turned around feeling a bit teary eyed.

“…. Is there a reason I catch your eye so often?”

Debra blushed. She was stunned to hear her suddenly ask that question. It didn’t occur to her that she may have noticed her watching.

“I just thought you were beautiful. I didn’t make you uncomfortable, did I?”

“No, I just wanted to know…”

Debra looked at her expression. While it was different, she couldn’t tell what made it so sad. As she looked away she noticed that the was a sense of sadness to her expression. Yet she always seemed so serene.

“Can I have your name? If it helps my name Justine.”

Debra was taken aback but didn’t hesitate to answer.

“It’s Debra.”

“Hmm.”

Debra felt like she was being examined. It was hard to believe she wanted to get in someone’s head so bad. What was Justine thinking raced through her head.

“As flattered as I am, I have to go.”

A look of confusion crossed Debra’s face.

“ I don’t have the need for romance.”

Debra’s heart panged in despair.

“Oh, I sorry then. I didn’t mean to bother you.”

Justine stared at her rather longer then Debra could stand for such words.

“I’ll leave then…”

With that Debra got up and was on her way.

She felt tears flow from her face. She took one glance back to see Justine mouth something to herself.

“I simply lost my words.”

Debra looked silently as she left with a clearly disappointed look. Before she knew it her legs carried her into Justine’s direction.

“Sorry, Justine.” Debra said. Justine turned with a look she hasn’t shown before.

“ I just wanted to say, Hi.”

Justine stared for a bit before smiling.

“Me too.”
