A monster looking in the mirror. Aak fictionspawn

Reflection

He looked down on his reflection. He saw his own face, dry and worn, nothing but a shadow of who he used to be. The forest was dying around him.

There were no birds anymore. No animals, just a fly every once in a while. He had learned how to catch them, but they weren’t much food.

Sea monster Aak fictionspawn

High Seas

He built the boat, piece by piece. It was the exact replica of a boat he knew, a boat sunk to the bottom of the deep sea.

On the ocean bed something moved.
