Castle of Sand
By Lin

The last time Faith saw Claire's back, Claire was sitting up naked after they'd had wild sex on the beach.

Sun on their skin, saltwater washing over them, Claire running sand through her fingers, grinning over her shoulder.


Fifteen years pass. Faith married the high school jock and Claire's back shows old beatings from her girlfriend.

Faith understands this isn't a random domestic.

This time, Faith helps Claire escape, and Claire lets her know the best way she can.

Faith lets that sand run through her fingers, and hides it in the pot Claire modelled on her own breast.
