She knocked on my front door and I did not even touch the handle before the door moved wide open with a creak.
I froze in my steps, taking a moment of silence to behold her beautiful flowing locs that seemed to be hugging her rosy cheeked face.
Her locks moved to and fro- I just stared and wondered who this goddess could be? And what in the cosmos was she doing in my apartment of all places? Eh, truly odd.
Then her voice reached out into my mind. Her lips were not moving, but I understood everything that she had to say:
"Don't fear. I come from a place where time and space is something that is not quite a matter there. We have all the time in the world..." She tilted her head a bit backward, slapped her knee, and chuckled then continued..."It's just like you humans like to say. Is it not?"
I blinked and scratched my head. What was going on here? Was this some kind of joke that my neighbors had pulled together? They knew that I was certain about there being some place where time and space- or a vast range of alternate realities were possible.
But now this being standing before me with her golden, beautiful dazzling locs, her eyes were shining like a starry night brought to life with a light that was quite blinding.
She approached me...moving steady...reaching closer and closer, until our noses touched. Then she blinked her eyes and in an instant we were transported to another place.
I gasped and held onto her. In a tight embrace, not wanting to let go. She smelled wonderful. Reminded me of a blast of sweet roses, a mix of lavender, and honey, too.
Wherever we were headed, I hoped it was an island that had lots of palm trees, coconuts, and lots, and lots of rum.
