Alone Again... by WSTopDeck Alone Again... by WSTopDeck
Rille walked down the golden beach, lost in thought. He could feel the faint breeze cool his body, smell the salty sea, hear the seabirds and the lap of waves on the shore. It was his second journey to the Summer Sea and again he found himself alone. Not that he minded…the solitude gave him a lot of time to think. He had thought for several years now that he may well spend the rest of his life alone, naught but a shadow in the herd. He sighed, ‘I mustn’t be so depressed on such a lovely day. I am still young, strong. There is still ample time for me.’ He looked up, his mismatched eyes observing some of his fellows frolicking in the shallows. He halted, a wave coming to swirl around his cloven hooves. A pair had broken off, galloping up the shore towards him. He raised his head, mane tossing in the wind. As they neared they seemed to suddenly realize who he was, plunging to a halt a hundred feet from him. They stirred uneasily, not sure what to do. He gazed at them, his strange eyes unblinking. The two unicorns fled, their minds tainted by the rumors they had heard. Rille dropped his head, outcast once more. He turned, walking back the way he had come, alone again…

______________________________________________

My entry for the *Unicorns-of-the-Vale Summer Sea contest. I featured Rille who, despite the beautiful day, is quite disconsolate and isolated. So, I managed to turn what should be a happy, fun theme into a dismal occasion. Oops...

On the bright side...look! It looks like water!!!!! :excited:

So, yeah, enjoy the image and the story(hopefully my writing isn't too terrible...)

I used one of my own photos as reference for Rille.

Background was referenced from this image: [link] by :icongracies-stock: Thanks!

I seriously though this was a photo when I saw the thumbnail. The shading is spectacular and the water looks so real. You've captured the feeling of summer and the feelings of loneliness so well.
