The Ice Maiden

Lars sighed and looked up from his homework. It was no use. He was going to have to see her again.

After the indoor smell of food, the autumn air felt fresh and chill. A dog howled somewhere.

Was he foolish, leaving without a rifle? A bear had been seen pillaging trash cans. He shrugged. If he went back into the house, his mom would probably catch him and make him go back to his studies.

It grew ever colder as he walked out of town, but his clothes were warm. His fingers tingled and his mouth was dry with anticipation.

And there she was. Beautiful. Perfect. The moonlight shone through her, making her glow with every shade of blue. Her sculpted features were proud and yet alluring, warm and yet ice-cold. Pinpoint reflections of stars sparkled on her like scattered diamonds.

Lars sank to his knees – and worshipped.
