Perfect for Us (Stories on a Theme – “Sea”)

“I like it here,” Janya said, pulling Trean’s arm around her, “it’s nice.”

Trean hummed in agreement. Here, there was the only sound of the sea to lull them to sleep. Janya especially, a sea witch, needed to be near the sea to allow her magic to work. Trean’s own magic was not linked to the land or the sea, but the starlight from the nights sky.

“Yeh,” he replied, pressing a kiss to the top of Janya’s head. Here, they could both thrive. They had a clear sky at night for Trean to make the amulets to sell to the local traders and they had the sea for Janya to chant the waves to calm to allow passing ships to get into the ports in the North.

It’s perfect, Trean thought, pulling Janya close, perfect for us.
