Photo Challenge #152

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

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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
