~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The scent of Big Macs and fries drew them, although only he was sentient. The years of training at the monastery having paid off, so to speak.

A moth, really? He flapped his brown wings, and guessed it could be worse. He could have come back as a germ or an amoeba. At least he’d been prepared. She however, not so much. Did she see this as heaven or hell? Or was she just a moth, drawn to the light of the window, totally unaware of having been more?

He remembered the suicide vest, trigger in her hand. Speaking about her god before sending them both into the great beyond.

Suddenly a bird swooped in, grabbing her in its beak before flying off.

Karma’s a bitch.

  1. Thank you, jmmcdowell!

Tell the world 7 things about yourself that you have not shared, yet.

  1. I’m a dyslexic writer. Is it a p? A q? Who the hell knows?
  2. If given the choice of taking a half hour flight or a three-hour drive, I’d choose the drive. No, I’m not afraid of flying, just enjoy driving. It’s all about the journey after all.
  3. As a child I owned a pet rat.
  4. I’ve taken wilderness survival classes. Bugs and bark? They’re not just for dinner.
  5. I have a deathly fear of heights…
  6. …but I”m also a roller coaster junkie. Go figure.
  7. I keep my nails painted not because it’s fashionable, but because otherwise I’d have no nails. I’m a thinking chewer, polish does not taste good.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“It’s happening! Grab the cup.” The Priestess said, knowing The Tears of Aramaya only flow once a cycle, renewal and rebirth.

The acolyte, head bowed, lowered the chalice beneath the sacred root bulb.

“Plunk, Plunk, Plunk.”

He collected them until the flow stopped, turning to her, cup upraised. “Drink my mistress, and let us renew the world.”

She gripped the chalice, her hands over his, and drank the waters of life.

Once drained, she drew him near, for she held the water, he the seed. Looking at the youth of his body, she thanked the Goddess old Germaine had died two months back. She took her duties seriously, but some tasks proved harder than others.
