ABOUT

When darkness comes, these places become bestial, carnal paradises. Creatures that are otherwise hidden from the warm embrace of the sun slither out from under which they hid, pale skin shining under the moonlight. They congregate in the shadows, meet in the corners and lust after the dim, dark spots. It is here in which they make their devious plans and their nightly confessions. But all must go through him, their guardian. He waits in the depths until they stir his murky waters, only then conjuring his interest. He ascends from his silt-laden home ready to reign over what is left of the night, to freely roam the mountainsides. Nearby villagers have reported near sightings of him slithering past in the dark, only leaving a moist trail shimmering under the moonlight. He never harms, never steals nor plunders, he merely watches and never stays for long. Once dawn arrives he slinks back into his dark aquatic den, perpetually waiting for the darkness to lure him out again. [Margaret Johnson]
