Pumpkin Pie #7

Author: Regret
Rating: G
Challenge: Pumpkin Pie #7 - Special Effects
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: David mulls over one special effect in particular.
Notes: Drew a complete blank on the theme, so in the end I went for a different kind of, er, effect.

He sat cross-legged on an outcrop on a rare calm day, watching the sandy plains sway in the heat. Sweat tickled the length of his ribs and he fidgeted in the oversized clothes, too hot but not stupid enough to risk the burning sun.

His hands frequently found their way beneath the folds of his tunic and scarf, playing with the ring hanging from a chain around his neck. Even now it remained cool, soothing; his mother’s ring.

He skimmed his thumb over the surface. She’d always told him he was talented. Special.

She’d been right; he wished she wasn’t.

Oooh, nice. I especially like the last line; it neatly twists the meaning of the entire story. Well done.
