The narwhal-sea sparkles from above. I am down down in the complicated cloisters, looking for the Snow Queen, and lost. Icy prophecies and children trapped in spheres look out at me from the frozen walls, but I must persevere if I am to ever meet at the beach house. True love beckons. "Where is my friend Alex?" She smiles coldly.

Memory:
Alex and I laying on the mats, wordless.

  1. Ah I'm so pleased to see you post something after all this time! You know, even in such a small amount of words your stories always whisk me immediately away to somewhere else entirely. I tremble in fear of the thought of what a whole novel of your words would do to me!

  8. I love how this is written; reading it feels like I can actually see the snow and ice sparkling and feel the cold. I've missed reading your posts. <3

    Postscript: The Snow Queen is one of my favourites, too.
