The Scribe of the Vault of Orendathos won the February 6th Aether Prompt with an entry of light and dark, stars and water… and mystery:
“There’s nothing there!”
Mary’s voice sounded like it was boring through deep water, muffled and garbled. I didn’t even look back. Before me was everything I had ever dreamed of. A stepping stone where there wasn’t one yesterday, or ever before. And another. And another.
All lead upward, toward the curtain of stars, so that they began to blend with the blue white tapestry above me.
“What are you doing, Ethan? The water’s cold enough to kill you. Don’t tell me you brought me here—”
I took a step. A journey beyond and below this world began.
Congratulations! Now you’re in the running for the 2019 AETHEREAL ENGINEER WRITER SUPPORT PRIZE PACKAGE! How might he, or possibly you, perchance win such fabled treasure as this? Take a look at my weekly Aether Prompts and find out!
