I’m Not Dead…Yet

Symbolism, symbolism, symbolism

  • Romance: I’d won Julia’s mother over for now, but in doing so, I’d also realized something. No matter my talk, I wasn’t the person Julia needed. Not yet. From this moment forward, I would strive to be worthy of her…to be the man she needed me to be.
  • Fantasy: At last the golumn fell, beaten and bloody. I stepped to the edge of the cavern to watch his descent. A wicked smile formed on his lips, chilling me to my core. With the last of his strength, he threw one dripping tendril at me, wrapping it around my ankle. Before I could react, I was drawn after him. As the cavern closed above us, I reached desperately for the sky, but it was too late.
