Between my shadow and my soul

New Aging Baz

Always keep your eyes open to see that you
aren't being fooled by a Frog
Her eyelids flutter.

Damn, she feels hungry which is weird. She usually wakes up queasy.
And it seems too dark to be actually daytime. Then she sees where she is.


She touches his face, the smooth skin that warmed up hers, and feels the obsession of the past few months go hysterical and commit suicide. For a split second she considers joining him, wherever he is. Then sanity kicks in. Who wants to be married at 13 anyways? She was young and pretty and smart. There was plenty of time to fall in love again, if she was tired of exploring the world independently. No arranged betrothal to Count Paris for this beauty. The sweet taste of freedom started filling her spirits.

She quickly rifles through his clothes, takes out his money and whatever else is of utility. She considers kissing him goodbye then she remembers how besotted he was with Rosaline. Stupid idiot! Oh well he gave her some adventure for a while.

Now the real journey begins…
