he turned to face her,
eyes sparkling and mouth twisted slightly
(ineffectively hiding his smile).
she slowly stepped forward into the
sudden thickening silence,
pushing forward with concentrated effort,
his grey-blue gaze slowly looming closer
and larger
till the irises expanded
and expanded
and engulfed her completely.
she stepped through onto the pale sand beyond.
stillness (but for occasional carrying echoes of his laugh,
creating ripples in the water just inches away)
with nothing but the approaching sunrise
in tones of rose and gold and dusty purple
and whisper of gentle grey-blue waves
grazing the sand near her feet.
