The girl had a proud posture and stood erect holding her waist as if it would run away if she didn't.
Her face was colored by an unfazed eagerness that matched the one in her voice.
"I know you, don't I?" The pulsating living energy in her voice, made him feel a sudden dryness in his throat.
"Do you?" He eventually responded after an unusually long pause.
"Yes! I have read your stories." She clamored and he noticed that her voice was unusually loud for the petite frame and even more unusual was her unbridled confidence in it's use.

That is how he has always walked but today he felt as if his briskness was an escaped from a pursuit by an unknowing enemy.
He was stopped by the red signal at a crosswalk and prompted by an unknown desire, he raised his eyes to find the setting sun.
He saw it above a building that was not too tall nor too wide and the modern facade of the building was adorned by a gargoyle that was wearing thick rimmed glasses.
The sun hasn't reached the horizon yet but an unseasonal fog has caused the light to die away.
The sight made Hubert uneasy and he turned away.
When he started walking, he felt as if the shadows behind him lengthened and swallowing the remainders of patches of brightness that he had just passed through.
The buildings that he passed were being lit one by one but the lights seemed feeble compared to the brightness that had been left them.

Here is a last one for the 2018. Inspired by this

Hope you all are enjoying your holidays to the fullest and wish you all the best for the new year.

The only other inhabitant was a shabby old man who sat in the furthest corner. She couldn't see his screen but the lewd grin and the awkward bulge was evidence to the kind of imagery that must be on the screen.
She shook her head, attempting to clear the disturbing image from her mind and focused her attention back on her own screen. The main page of 'cracksocial.com' strained her eyeballs with the blood red branding. Nothing to see there. The thin text listing the dialog with her boyfriend was displayed in the overlaid chat window. She tried to ignore the last line sent by him, reminding herself how pleasant an experience it usually was.
She recalled the romantic exchanges they'd had; the moment when he confessed his love. The awkward but alluring words. How he knew exactly what she wanted for her birthday. The sweet words he whispered
  Chapter 1 - The End is the beginning - Part 2She sat lazing in a kneeling posture but her mind was alert.
The anguish had only lasted a handful of moments and had ended with the swift conclusion to not give it any significance more than a freak accident that she had survived.
She was alive and that was enough for now; which left the niggling question of how and who had rescued her.

She may have crawled to safety; safety being across the border a mile or so further down from where she had fell.
But then recalling the condition she had been in, she had to disembark it to bottom of the list.

Sinking Feeling
Have you ever had the feeling of sinking into an abyss?

  Gotcha by udnaan  Lengthening shadow by udnaan  The Dress by udnaan  Accidental VictoryPrologue: Whither lies the consciousness
Excerpt: Anna wakes up in an unfamiliar place without any memory of how she got there and begins to explore.
The unflinching beam of sunlight was prodding her slumbering eyelids and her lips quivered, mumbling inaudible syllables and she whisked herself under the thin sheets.
She dreamed of flying over an inexhaustible sea of clouds, stretching beyond field of vision. The wind whipped her face, convulsing it into numbness. A vaguely projected shape underneath kept fixed pace with her and when it begin to sharpen, she recognized it as her shadow. The shape went on shrinking as the clouds pulled closer and in a few moments, she dove into them. Cool drops of mist coalesced, brushing her cheeks and the rousing aroma of rain satiated her senses. The experience was brief and she emerged at the opposing end, leaving the luminescent softness behind. Her perspective was altered by a dark gradient canvas arching around the clear blue boundar

Found this beauty and decided to engage in some practice. I think I made her wink a little. Still not so bad for half an hour, eh?

  Chapter 1 - The End is the beginning - Part 1The slumbering figure turned in a quest to find escape from the intruding light.
She moaned and puckered her eyelids but the light continued to seep unflinchingly from a thin crease left open.
After a few twists and rolls, she had almost settled on her sunken belly, steadying the posture with a folded knee with her face safely tucked under the quivering shoulder.
She was about to sink back into the dreamless sleep when an idle wonderment caught her attention.
She felt exerted beyond acceptance as if she had walked a long distance but conversely, there was also a lingering sense of unease, something that clutched at her subconsciousness demanding her attention; something important that was forgotten.
The warm comfort of the bed was intoxicating but perhaps she could wait a bit longer.
Even though, as she began to ponder, a sinking feeling made her feel as if it might be better if she didn't have to remember whatever it was at all.
It was something that had happened, not something that s

Something quite different that I'm trying out. Water colors. Feels patchy (no pun intended) around the edges but can't beat the combination of orange hair and lingerie. What do you think?
