The duck takes off from the lake and leaves soft ripples and a feather behind. The feather dances on the breeze; graceful, light and full of joy, just like you.

I can’t wait to see you again, twirling and laughing, fair as the sun. But anticipation is part of the thrill or so they say. Well, ‘they’ are wrong. I’m always fearful that you won’t come.

You never told me where you came from, where I could find you.

‘Never fear, I’ll find you wherever you are,’ you say and smile.

I’m still waiting, my Ondine. Why aren’t you here?

If she’s a magical creature, she might not be allowed to say or come and secretly sneaks away to see him. Maybe he’s the controlling type when they’re together. Maybe she just plays with him. Maybe he’s obsessed… 😀
