An enigma or a best kept secret, they are.
And their constant teasing left my heart aching. Longing. Hopeful.
They held me there for days. Captive.
Leave them alone, I told myself. Ignore them. Let them think they mean nothing.

Inviting the late afternoon breeze into the room, I caught a sudden glint. My eyes widened with disbelief.
There it was. Naked without its veil. Illuminated.
The sun's last streaks banking off its peak.
Unexpected. Unbelievably majestic. Like a movie backdrop.
My hand reached out into the crisp air.
