Stairway to Heaven

on January 15, 2016

I ignored Amanda’s hot breath in my ear, swung around the corner, and stumbled down crumbling steps.

She grabbed my arm. “Don’t! I was kidding.”

I shook her off as old, stone walls yielded secrets. I rested body and cheek against the damp, rough wall, turned my face toward it, and licked. A cool wave of moss, soil, and wet rock enveloped me.

Amanda lunged, but was prevented from proceeding by the same magic that drew me. I remembered: a crevice in a dense forest, entrance to my cave; love lost; a lifetime; dying and resurrecting.

99 words toward Spinning Stardust, inspired by the photo prompt for Friday Fictioneers.
