"The Exchange" - As the light dims ever so slightly, I gleam a figure garbed in the colors of Autumn. Like a goddess of the season, gracefully floating into the dark forest. Eager for a closer look, I creep from the cold water. Grasping the mud between my fingers, slipping and meeting the cold hard rocks. My vision fills with colors and stars. I cannot move. Gazing up, am I witnessing a cold looming figure approaching my beautiful goddess? Like the Winter robbing Autumn of her warmth. They join together in a frightening exchange that lights the forest ablaze.
