RUNAWAY LOVE (The Final Act)

The night slowly lifted as the heavy fog descended. Their dewy bodies gently twinkling in the first blush of dawn.

R: Wake up. Its time.
L: Time? Time for what?
R: Time for us to go.
L: Time for us to be together? Forever?
R: Yes
L: And ever?
R: Yes, forever and ever. Come on now, follow me.

Whilst the rest of the world still slept, the lovers turned themselves around so that they pointed towards the lake. Slowly they gained speed, side by side, chinking and chonking, clinking and clonking, as their bodies raced down the hill. Giggles, filled with trepidation for their imminent freedom, echoed around them so that they were escorted down the slope in a cloud of jingle-jangle and laughter. As they gained speed , the racket became louder and louder, like the clanging of church bells telling them that something good was about to happen. They looked at each other and smiled, knowing that from that moment on, nothing would ever be the same again. And all of a sudden the hard steely clanging of metal ceased.

Silence.

The damp heavy fog.

Then came the flapping of wings and the warmth of soft flesh.

And splash.



The End
