Low Tide

“Another few hours and the sea will reach the beach: a small drop of time, the beat of an eyelid… Yet we have to wait, and even then we will not know much more, about us, about life, not even about death…”

“My dear, you are philosophical this morning. I know how to cure this! And we will wait for the tide together, afterwards.”

Her smile lits her suntanned face: they walk slowly up the hill, find the right spot. They could be alone in the entire universe. By now, they might be.
