3x21: the fox and the wolf

The fox and the wolf - prologue

(This is a very, very rough draft. This story has been in my head for months.)

-

He never sleeps at night.


He closes the blinds when the sun rises.


Wide awake, he sits on the couch.


His mind doesn’t quiet.


There is no calm.

-

He sleeps until he wakes.


Curled into a ball like a cat on a warm pillow.


You wake up at the break of dawn.


You’re productive.


You wake up at the break of noon.


You’re lazy.

-

It only comes at night.


What he thinks.


What he feels.


He can only find when the sun goes down.


The words.


The pictures.


They come in the dark.


The sunlight saps their beauty.


The light fades them.


In the dark, the colors flourish.


The words stand out.

-


They wake for breakfast.


He waits for a midnight snack.


It’s not normal.


It’s not healthy.


But there is someone.


Always someone.


Someone that will fall asleep on the couch while you work.


Someone that will be happy knowing you’re there.


Even when, mentally, you’re not.


There’s someone that can do both.


Someone that can brave the day and the night.

-


The fox wakes.


The the wolf sleeps.


The fox sleeps.


The wolf watches.


Patient.

Hey there, just read your marvelous story! I do hope you update soon (as of March 10th, 2017) I know you are a grad student so it takes up your time! Looking forward to future chapters!!!

Hello, my dear! As for an update, I am trying, I promise. I got some writing done last night although I have to admit it took an alternate path than what I had planned which means more writing to bring back to the intended route. Why do I do this? :P But, yes, I will be updating. I have about 20 orders to fill this weekend for my business, and then homework, so I will try to squeeze in more writing this week. Thank you for your patience and I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the story so far!
