The stake is cool beneath his palm.

It’s a race, he thinks.

Not a sprint, but a marathon, the finishing line forever vanishing beyond the horizon, the darkness that followed snapping at his heels.

A fight with no winner. No end.

He looks out into the desert, at the girl sat alone in the moonlight. A shadow amongst shadows, footsteps falling in the silhouette of his own, leaving no trace.

He wants to call her in, bring her home.

But he can’t.

She’s not that girl anymore. Only the ghost of one he used to know, once upon a time.
