Flasher Friday: "Meta"




***$10 Amazon GC Readers' List Giveaway below***

Another fabulous Friday! This inspirational pic is so "earthy," I couldn't resist adding a reference from one of my WIPs. Can you guess where he might be from? Take a look at my friends' versions too. You won't be disappointed :-)

Meta
I jerked, unable to breathe.

Putrid air rushed my lungs, bruising them as the harsh substance forced life-giving water up and out of my mouth.

I coughed, struggling to adjust, my body recognizing the act of breathing air as regressive, unnatural.

An echo seemed to surround me, then I realized it must have been my own voice. Everything was different here - lighter, faster.

Squinting against the brightness of the multi-colored light, I opened my eyes and inspected the soft, cool, white substance cradling me.


My heart pounded, the unexpected need for sex surfacing as footsteps moved toward me.
