The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Sept_2020_Image04Still Stood Still
by Asena Lourenco

Her legs stood still in the silence like they were about to snap. No one dared say a word. The chilly breeze rattled my spine and spun my hair around. My heart was a beating drum, bold against the quiet. The thick, obsidian clouds slowly gathered above my head like a crown waiting to fall down at any moment. She towered over me, her arm wrapped around my shoulder as we gazed into the distance. I sighed. She was the only person who had ever come close to being a maternal figure to me and the person who ever would. The heavens opened and the sky started weeping. On that day, you could almost hear the sobbing. The grey puffs of nothing floating around. My fingers reached to one, only to pass straight through it. But still, still, we stood still. As still as a sturdy table on four legs. We stood, statues through a hurricane. Still.
