Photo Challenge #152

Underwater images are in a world of their own. This is no exception in my mind.

Image this week by

tues-challenge-14th-febThe memory still haunted her, how such a toy could possess and obsess her.
She loved that doll, and remembered how she’d longed to be like it.
So beautiful and flawless.
In trying to mimic its perfection, she had slipped into madness.
In a moment of jealous rage three years ago, she’d thrown the doll into the clear water of the lake and watched it sink gracefully to the bottom.
Closing her eyes now, she jumped in to follow its journey.

When they retrieved her body, she looked peaceful, at rest, her alabaster complexion resembling the finest porcelain of a china doll.
She wore a wedding dress, hand sewn in secret over those years, an exact replica of the one worn by her doll from yesteryear.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
