by Ela Lourenco

A blinding light pierces through the darkness. I close my eyes as tightly as I can, but it permeates through my eyelids as though to burn my retinas. Huddling against the walls of my little room I hide from the sun’s rays. Moving from corner to corner as the brightness hunts me, changing its course hour by hour. I count the seconds and minutes until night-time – until the hours of my freedom. I yearn for the night, the differing shades of blackness and shadows. I live in the darkness I was born into.
Only once the sky is black will I rise and make my way to the one tiny window and peer outside – seeking the dark swaying branches raising their gnarled fingers towards the obsidian skies in an unholy dance. I join them from my room, my embryo – together we await the second rising of the dark Prince. We await the time he will bring the never-ending night…

    Darkly intriguing and excellent.

  2. There is such a huge amount of stroy wrapped in this beautiful, lyrical prose – great work.
