AncientHe discards the land at each chance,
Immersing himself in the real world.
The world of the waves and salt's scent
And of small red fish that dart past his eyes.
The water caresses him,
The sea plants dance for him,
He stays down until his lungs burn with the need for air.
His only regret is that he must breathe,
But he reflects that it would be the best way to die,
To have the waters inside him as well
And to finally become one with them
And then She appears.
"Come to me," She says, with eyes that look everywhere.
He reaches for her, but She is already surrounding him.
"Be mine," She intones, and he knows that he already is.
She cradles him, much more huge than he can imagine
And when he kisses Her,
Her laughter fills the world.
"You can never go back," She warns him.
But the words mean nothing to him,
For to him the places of dirt have long been dead already.
"Never leave me," he begs,
And she holds him close
Just as she holds the waters
And sings to him the ancient story of the sea.
"Hm?" Fujimoto raised a brow as he bent down to pick up a piece of paper from under a door he never seen before. He felt something familiar to his own work but luckily nothing that could harm him. He opened up the folded paper and couldn't read what was scribbled on it at first but then figured out that it was a letter to him.
Go through the door.
"Howl?!" The red head jumped back a little as he stared at the piece of paper for a while. He had met the other wizard a couple of times before just to trade some potions and information. But he couldn't contact the blonde (or was it raven haired) after their meetings, for he figured out that the other man was from another world.
Fujimoto contemplated over the matter before coming to a conclusion. He stuffed the letter into his pocket before walking toward his many daughters.
"Daddy will be back. I won't be gone for long." He told them as he lovingly pressed his hands against the sides of their magic bubble. A sm
The Sea Fell in Love With MeHow do you fall in love with a goddess?
No, the more important question would be...
how does a goddess fall in love with you?
A scrawny geek perches on an old dock,
legs swinging into strong blue waves,
looking up into an endless blue sky.
The sea licks and whips his bare feet.
The sun won't set for hours,
so what is that shining on the water,
like sunlight through a crystal?
Golden, deep pink and white...
He draws his feet beneath him,
eyes raking over this new spectrum.
No, it cannot be.
A face in the water...
a beautiful face, with sweet, light eyes.
The water claws at the dock,
forming sleek hands
with gleaming fingernails.
It softens into golden skin,
and smiles with magenta lips.
The water lady embraces him with a hand,
too big to use her arms, for fear of drowning him.
My love... how would you like to live forever with me?
It isn't fairThis was hopeless. He had worked tirelessly for several days emptying the house of sea water. The upper room was now cleared, except from a few crabs passing by him from time to time but the basement? Hopeless.
He looked at the steal door and sighted as he acknowledged that his life work was out of reach, he would not be able to empty the vault, not be able to start anew.
His thin frame fell back on a chair and he wriggled his nose as he felt his bottom become wet as almost everything in his ruined house.
One of his eccentric bottles lied flushed in a corner, he picked it up, carefully almost like a child and wiped off the dirt with the hem of his suit.
"Oh by the love of the sea, what should I do?" He whispered lightly and clung tightly to the bottle.
He had lost everything. His house, his life work, his children and who knows what the fish of a wife is doing while he sits alone in his cold, wet house.
It wasn't fair.
He had done nothing but sacrifice since he came here. Starting with
