The two continued to exchange gentle touches, watching one another closely. It reminded Verte of how they sometimes tamed animals. Creatures could be controlled by Summer magic, but if held that way, they broke free at the first opportunity. A tamed creature remained for life.
“Who is taming who?” she wondered aloud.
Grey pulled his hands back. “I wasn't...I didn't mean...”
Verte smiled. “I'm doing the same,” she told him. “It's as though I'm afraid you'll run.”
“But neither of us can,” he said. They were obligated, sealed to one another for the length of the peace. Verte meant to keep it as long as possible.
I hope you'll enjoy all the participants this week!
