Prompt: "Simple Delights" [ submitted by Heather ]


The sound of running water starts out as a mere trickle before flourishing into one overwhelming, deep voice as she comes closer.

She removes her cloak, hesitates at the water’s edge before submerging herself in. She becomes wild; hair becomes drifting seaweed. For a moment she is a creature, a demon in the water.

But soon she surfaces, floating on her back.

She feels pain ebbing away—her deceit, her lies. Everything falls silent as water laps gently upon the shore.

For a moment she is no one, floating in nothing, and she closes her eyes in a makeshift peace.
