The night was full of sounds, wind softly murmuring and then building in volume and fading away again, like crashing waves.
Frantic rain pelted against the window, the dark cloudy night sky contrasted with the warm glow inside my home as I snuggled under my blanket and curled my legs up on a chair, sipping tea.
In the morning, the wind had wandered away leaving a freshly scrubbed world – the morning sun cast a gentle glow to the soft lustrous pearl sky. The verdant scent of Spring beckoned to me as I started my morning walk down the long winding path to the water’s edge.
That was the day I met Viola …she was peering down into the shallow tidepools, searching for an oyster that might have a pearl (she has always wanted a pearl of her very own).
Her seaweed-colored hair was hanging down, hiding her violet eyes. When she looked up and saw me, she had a gentle look of surprise and wonder because she had never seen a real human before!
