Engulfed


Through the disease, Bea’s future was slowly being consumed by her past.

Her time had advanced through long years, moving gently with the rhythm of the sun and moon. But, now Bea struggled to stay present each and every day, grasping at random moments. 

As is sand in an antique hourglass, time as Bea knew it was slowly running out. Memories can transcend all time, and they would soon engulf her.

  1. This sound so hopeless, it almost make me feel like I'm running out of air. Poor Bea, her struggles will soon come to an end. This writing really touches the emotions.

    Have a great week Annie.

  4. I second the yikes! I stumbled on a book the other day, (I'm just beginning to read it now) What an Italian Dog Taught an American Girl About Love, by Justine Van der Leun hopefully the blurb holds true, of course being a dog lover it's got me covered there. I'll let you know what I think afterwards!

  5. There's the seed of an even bigger story in these few sentences, Annie. I'd love to see you cultivate it and read what blooms.
