I Rise From The Sea: Another Drabble [Blog Challenge Day 18]

I rise from the sea at midnight and shed my selkie skin. I dance through silvery sands in the moonlight.

Until I sense him, picking up my skin.

I whirl around, but too late. Even the sea cannot save me now.

He stands there, holding my skin…and all power over me.

I topple to my knees.

“At your command,” I mutter.

He makes no answer, but drops something in my arms.

I gasp. My skin!

“I’m not that kind of man.”

I look into his eyes. Then he walks away. Leaving me free.

Except, he takes my heart with him.
