“Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?” Effie can’t take her sky off the horizon.
Before her very eyes, the blanket of night slowly recedes, as tendrils of orange unfurl. Curls of colour wash away the twinkle of stars as golden rays light up the sea.
Deliah would respond if she could but the thick tape covering her mouth makes that hard. She struggles against the tight rope chaffing her wrists, her eyes focused not on the sky but the woman before her.
“You should really soak it in this might be your last.” Effie doesn’t turn to stare at Deliah, content to continue staring at the gorgeous view. “What a magical sight, it really makes me feel alive.”
When Effie does turn she has a hand shading her eyes, a soft smile gracing her features as she reaches for Deliah.
“Perhaps you don’t understand that, being in your predicament.”
Deliah violently swings her face to the side to avoid Effie’s hand. She has no intention of making this easy for the woman.
“Now, now, you really should have enjoyed it while you could.” Effie’s fingernails dig into Deliah’s side, “after all it’s one of the most magical things in this world.”
