#VignetteSeries – Pearl


She shone. Her skin, albino in the strong sunlight, glimmered with a translucent sheen to rival a pearl. If I’d not worn sunglasses, she should have dazzled me. Reclined upon the sand like a seashell awaiting a wave, she casually lifted her head, squinted sapphire eyes and smiled. In that moment, that beach by a sea on an island in an ocean in the sunshine, was ours and nobody else’s. Mine and my Pearl’s. I gabbled it because I had to, my mind, body and every function was already hers. Good I thought, it’s been mine way too long.

  1. I had to laugh. My grandmother called me a “white child” because I am so pale. As a result I could only imagine myself (and perhaps Pearl) turning lobster red on that beach. Thank you for the image.
