Ephemeral

She lives in a cave, embraced by shields stronger than any you've ever known. Almost a cocoon. She is almost hibernating, not quite.

She is immortal.

Yes, the immortality of the Dasaroi was revoked... but there are a handful of immortals scattered around this world. Most of us choose to interact with you. She chooses to hide, and to wait. She is too strong, you see. My brother and I are strong, but her...

Too strong to ever touch you.

So she waits, silent and slow. She emerges every few centuries. Your lives are so ephemeral to her - your generations are ephemeral to her.

And every time she emerges, I find her more alien than the last.

I love her. But we have moved beyond each other's understanding.

Yeah, I'm sucking. I am feeling kinda stuck. Problem is, I'm ending up using multiple prompts in each of these, so I'm poking around and saying "Well, that's kinda been done..."

This is Blogathon 2006. I'm posting every half hour for 24 hours, to raise money for RAINN.

We're still at $2,460.60! Get me to $2,500!
