Lucia's dream

in microfiction •  16 days ago


-What a headache, that constant sound is making me despair- Lucia said.

She had been awake late at night without falling asleep, on the wall there was a stain that reminded her of a friend's face, but it looked as if he had been beaten a lot.

-It is difficult to find inspiration with so such a disorder-

She said aloud without anyone answering him.

The old book he had been reading seemed to move by itself, in front of his eyes, it seemed to disappear to reappear a little more far on the table, it had drawings of naked human bodies with animal faces engraved on cowhide pasta and the figure of a beautiful naked woman half covered with her own hair.

-I give up, this time I will not be able to paint anything-

She said to herself while throwing the brush with Indian ink on the table-

The next morning they found Lucia dying with notorious marks of anemia, on the table there was a strange book with grotesque but fascinating winged beasts painted in blood and black ink.

The disturbing sound that had previously made her desperate had become an ally.

Wow, what an interesting story, @nocturnus! I've read it several times. (And I apologize for the late response!) So, she is an artist who paints mythical creatures in blood. I hoped to figure out what the sound was, but I couldn't quite get my mind around that. I think you'll have to tell me!
