A cemetery; bathed in early morning sunlight in springtime.

 

A young girl; fey and virgin.

 

A red dress; clinging to slightly sweat-coated skin.

 

Perfume; mingling with that scent, an intoxicating blend of cherry blossom and musk.

 

Naked feet; with hallowed dirt smeared between the toes.

 

Blonde hair; sun-bleached and sleep-tangled.

Death; waiting in the shadows, licking his boney chops.
