    By any standard of measuring trade-winds, they were harsh that evening. The promenade deck was bolted for hurricane conditions, and we were there fighting that current, beyond caring, your skin whiter than those great cumulus cities coasting along the calm blue before the storm, your hair wet, formed to your skin and primal: braids, flaring at the tips, the final warning before the whip snapped, the railing gave in, thunderheads crashed, rain fell like rivets and we, lashed tight by tongues and hair and being one, gave in to the billowing white, lost in deep green, and still beyond caring.

    Riding the white horse through the green hills covered in beautiful yellow dandelions. Over the hills was a lake. The water stood still and it felt like no one knew about the lake. Getting closer and closer to the lake, something flashed my eyes, As i was riding the horse down to the lake and getting closer to the shallow water, there stood still a box. A brown old box made out of wood. It seemed like someone left it there on purpose of forgot it there for someone else to find it. As i picked up the box, i heard a voice behind me saying ” open it and good things will come to you soon “. I did. There in the box was a key. A key that led to an unknown place.
