Illusion

Whispers float through the air as she creeps down the corridor. They graze her skin, stab at her heart and stroke her hair.

“You’re delusional.”
“It won’t work out.”
“Think about what’s best.”
“You can’t invest your feelings into an animal.”
“We’re just thinking about you.”
“She’s in love with an animal.”
“She’s crazy.”

“She’s just attention-seeking.”

She opens the door silently, and closes it behind her. The breeze lifts up her hair and her heart, and she walks down the path to the road.

She runs faster than the whispers, until she reaches the bridge, where she stops, and the whispers all scurry back to their hiding places in the darkest parts of her mind, because he’s there. She flies into his arms, and they run into the forest together.
“I don’t want to go back.” She says when they reach the waterfall.
“You can’t stay with me.” He tells her, taking her hands in his.
“I will, though.” She whispers.
“You know I can’t fight you much longer.” He says. “But you know how they see me.”
“But I see you.” Β She looks up at him. “Isn’t that enough?”
“They see a wolf, you see a boy. Who’s the real one?” He asks.
“You can’t think like that. You know it’s an illusion.” She says. “I’m staying.”
“Okay.” He whispers, and holds her close.

I decided to go through with my plan I mentioned in my last post πŸ™‚

So if you like flash fiction, check in every other day for a story, and if you like random stuff, check in every other day as well… that’s confusing, but anyway πŸ˜€
Ciao!
Update:
That plan never worked out XD but I do post every other day πŸ™‚
