Bed Hair

Julrane woke up and tried to stretch as she always did before getting out of bed. It was harder than normal. Her arms wouldn’t move. They were pinned to her side. Any residual sleep-addledness dissipated from the surprise. She was in her own room. That was good. She wiggled. Something was tied around her chest. Ropes? It didn’t feel like rope through her gown. More like a lot of small, soft strings. She shifted her body enough to look down at herself. The strings around her were blue.

She thought back on the night, and her mind recalled taking longer than normal to get comfortable, turning over multiple times. She’d always let it float lose around her rather than wrap or braid it, and now she had, apparently, tied herself up. This was a downside to having ankle-length hair she had never yet stumbled across. She’d have to tell the plants about this one, once she got herself free.

    David, you are transporting me again in a mesmerizing and mysterious world. I want to stay there with Julrane and her plants; the ones that she grows underwater. Actually it’s only one.
    David, you are a splendid writer, I can’t wait to see your book published.

    1. I’m glad you like spending time with her, because my current plan is for her and her home to start appearing more as I begin to really explore the depths (pun intended) of this corner of my fictional world.

      I contacted 2 more agencies about my book tonight. There are still 14 I haven’t heard back from, but the feedback I receive is getting progressively more positive.

      Thank you for another lovely comment, G. You know, of course, how much I value your encouragement. Have a wonderful evening!

      1. Oh, so I am going to hear more about her. I love her. I told you that from the beginning. Do you remember that?
        “but the feedback I receive is getting progressively more positive.” that is wonderful news David. Hang in there. You will be a star.
        Have a beautiful night.
        G.
