Starting a new story and as one might know the start might not be all to sensual or sexy, but it sets the scene. If you feel something missing or want to add something feel free to speak up. Secondly since Nobody said anything about Red riding Hood I am going for a follow up where I will introduce a Hunter.For now I leave you with a new story.
Sensual Sunday: Mother Earth
Living the life of an adventurer I seen places above and beyond the imagination. Sunsets that had set the skies on fire or the green frolicking lights of the Borealis. Beauty has been all around me in form of nature as Mother Earth has meant it to be.
I have been soaked by rain,burned in the sun and been half frozen in the mountains. Being it today it is no different as I am sweating and ploughing through a thick green jungle. Having a high roof over my head made of the tree tops with dots of sun shining through like small stars. Past sweating trunks and crawling through the bush all while being in a cooker.
Time has me looking for a place to stay the night and refresh myself up a little. According to the plan I was heading to a high mountain ridge where there might be some shelter. It is a story that has been told for many years but nobody had been able to confirm it being true. People have never gotten back from the expedition and no one knows what happened. Some returned only to say they never found what was described as heaven.
I dab the wet cloth on my head hoping it will suck up the drops of sweat that drip in my eyes. And taking the last sip from my drinking bottle. I need more fluids if I want to make sure I do not dehydrate. as I lower my head I see a flash of white within all the green and brown. It almost shown like a reflecting mirror. The view was only brief and does not return while staring into its direction. Am I starting to hallucinate and loose my mind.
With eyes peered into the direction of what I thought I saw, I start moving. Praying that I am not crazy as the evening might be setting in soon and I need that camping spot set up. One step after another the growth was changing and getting darker. Looking at the watch I see I should have enough time before it would get this dark.
I move aside a bush and push my body through the small hole I created. Eyes shut and looking down I step in and hit my head against something hard. When I look up I find myself against a wall of rock. I found the ridge and did it the hard way. “Ouch” Never seen this one coming it was all green and bush. With a little jiggle I squeeze myself between the bushes and mountain, setting out to follow it one way and finding me a cave with in minutes.
I take off my backpack, as the weight is dropped of my shoulders I am relieved I found me a place to stay. Being able to relax has me hearing water running and with a quick draw of the flash light I see a small drizzle of water coming from the rocks. The taste is clear and cold refreshing a tired face and body with some needed rehydration. With newly found energy it I time to gt to work and get back outside, tying a red sash around a ranch to make it easier for me to find the cave again. Knowing what to look for I gather some wood to start me a fire.
With clothes spread across the rocks to dry near the fire I sit quietly getting embraced by the warmth of the fire after a cold wash in the small spray of water. The snake I caught earlier that day is sizzling over the fire. Tired and content with today’s ending I fall asleep naked.
Hope you enjoyed the setting I am trying to achieve for this story. Nothing is set in stone yet, this is just a start.
