When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

Fae was working



Fae is the name of a fictional female character. Fae is one important character in my e-book “Cuando la obscuridad se prende”. As you can imagine, the book is written in Spanish. This is a translation of one of the stories in that book.



Fae was working


Fae was working when she sensed him, he appeared out of the blue, without any notification. He was gorgeous, eye-catching as usual, but he came at the wrong time. He has always done the same thing, he arrives in the instant when she cannot get rid of everything and allow him to seduce her.

He almost convinced her. Morpheus has a hypnotic charm. He is tall and handsome, with an amazing personality… His only presence cannot be ignored. Fae had learned to escape from him; nevertheless she is extremely attracted to guys with beautiful eyes. The sighs landed first, between some flirting and shy smiles, flanked by evident pretensions and weak voices. She is strong. She turned the computer on and made an effort to concentrate in her work, but he was too close and she laid down her defenses unconsciously. I’m working –she told him with a disguised smile- I don’t have time for this. Morpheus didn’t answer, he wanted the girl and he’s not used to rejection. Her eyelids began to flirt with the striking man while Fae was losing the force to fight against desire. He smiled thinking “another success!” She was in the limbo between determination and perdition.

Morpheus was walking in the office when he stumbled upon a mirror; he couldn’t remember the last time he stopped to watch his own reflection. He was really attractive. He stayed there, completely calmed, relaxed, in ecstasy with the narcissus effect he was living; his eyes began to blink, to close themselves until his body was completely relaxed. Fae hugged him and took him to the sofa. She covered her love with a red blanket, allowing him to have some rest while she finished her work.

  1. This is a very nice and charming story. When i first read it, I thought of Morpheus as the character in The Matrix! Silly me! It is obviously the real Morpheus, the greek god of dreams. I like that you used eye-catching to describe him, it goes very well with his imagery and with the tension in the story.

  2. Thanks for your comment. Let me tell you that you are not the first person to mention the character of the movie after reading this piece. It is a bit unfortunate that fictional characters take over the fame of great mythological ones.

  3. It is fascinating, as all you write, where can we find that e-book?
