Penance: January 12, 2011, "Name of the Game" Month - Main Course Week: She Was

Prompt: Evora Loreena

She was the sound of bells played with the tips of fingers in the smoky shadows of smoke-filled rooms, where light was red and gold and a soft, musical thrum vibrated through the air. She was the grace of dancing girls’ swaying hips and turning arms, the flash of their bronzed skin beneath swirling red dancing costumes. She was the taste of succulent fruit, picked from heavy, pregnant boughs. She was Evora Loreena and she silken vibrancy of life itself, a laughing swirl of red and gold and smoke-formed shadows.
