Changing Things Around

I once expanded my writing blogs into a set of three, this one being concerned with Ferodoxis alone. However, due to some nice changes with Blogger and the fact that I'm not writing as much any more, I've decided to contract back into a single writing blog. Over the next few weeks, you'll be seeing old posts from one of my old writing blogs appearing, interspersed with new posts about current writing. Please bear with me here.

It didn't truly mean anything to him any more. His toes curled over the edge of the bridge's wall. Yes, he should drop himself into the water.

He held out his arms straight from his sides and looked up at the moons. He closed his eyes and tipped forward, giving himself to gravity. It claimed him more quickly than he'd thought it would, and jerked him off the bridge's wall.

"Anyit!"

He turned his head, opening his eyes. A shadowy figure waved its arms. Too late. He landed, and the impact smashed the air from his lungs. Anyit gave a short scream and sank, inhaling water convulsively.
