She Explores

She Explores

She sits outside cafes, espresso in one hand and a well loved novel in the other. Romantic tragedy. Spaghetti twirls around her fork as she observes the captivating beat of the city, the elusive footsteps and foreign laughter of passing strangers draw her in.

The energy and the vibrancy eventually become her. As the sky darkens and the cobbled streets grow dimly lit, she feels the red wine flow through her body, heating up her bones. She glows with vivacity as her hips begin to sway in time with the rhythmic music.

Up on the roof terrace they beckon her to join them dancing. She laughs and tilts her head back, savouring the remnants of her glass before reaching for the Sulky on her wrist. With it she pulls her hair up in to a loose bun and then sacrifices her mind, body and soul to city.

She's Sulky.
