It’s a story I’ve written in one day, really. It’s 5k long so you might want to read it here.
Please read the warnings. It’s very sad.
Written for freeiwa_daily challenge. Today there was: Waves
They say it’s the rolling swell of the sea, especially after the passage of a large wave.
They had no idea it could have a lot of other very different meanings.
It’s the middle of December, the sun isn’t even up yet but here they are, Makoto and him, standing on the beach. Haru hesitates, but he had already taken his shoes off. He can’t go back, not this time.
The sand is cold. It’s harsh and hard on his soles but he keeps going. Makoto watches him as the sun timidly appears in the horizon. The Ocean is infinite to their eyes. The waves come and go, endlessly, and they will do until no one is left on this planet, until the earth turns into sand.
Haru stands at the very limit of the beach. He stops where he can see the sand getting darker where the Ocean reaches till there and, like each time, he can’t go any further. His body refuses to obey. It’s been a year and Haru still can’t go into the water.
