I ambled between the giant trees, breathed in the coolish, dampish air and let my mind wander. I looked up at the treetops and the light shining through them surrounded me with hope. Hope for love and satisfaction. Hope that he might not have been lying. The way he kept looking at me. So insecure. But he had hurt me deeply. I didn't tell him how I felt, I didn't even know that feeling before. I just disappeared. I never faced my problems, I ran away from them, I worried a lot and I didn't even feel good in doing so. But at the moment I'd rather lie in his arms and forget who he was and what he did. He wanted to change and it wouldn't be easy he'd said despairingly. The worst was, that I somehow believed every word he'd said and I didn't want to be angry about him. I just couldn't tell him. It would've been like losing a fight. I lay down on the pillowy moss and kept inhaling the evening air. With my eyes closed I sensed everything. The chirp of the brids. The cars in the distance. The sweetness of summer. The sun's warm rays tickling my cheeks. The freedom. Oh, how I loved it to let me go. I'd forgot the time and I only opened my eyes again when a cold blast made me shiver. He made me shiver.


Kati and I had a lovely shoot today. I have to admit that I'm really proud of this and I hope you like it as much as I do!

Hope it somehow matches the short abrigdment of the story I'm writing currently. Thank you Billeh for reading it first and correcting it :)


Press L please :)



Noticed that this would be perfect for my feelings-series, I changed the title.
