Erotica

something cobbled together mainly through boredom, it's not intended to be explicit or graphic, but more in the hope of arousing and erotic. The two main chracters are that of a male who is over a lengthy period of time is being slowly seduced by an sensuous spirits (female), her motives are unclear to the male. This may progresses further, at present can not say with any certainty, would very much like to hear feedback, constructive critisicm or otherwise.

So this is how things were. Possibly how things would be again.

For your crimes, this world will self-destruct in 20 seconds. A twelve gigaton, nuclear implosion: shockwave, compression, fission reaction. Give thanks to the unstable nuclei of the humble atom; give thanks to the neutron whose work is good and just. Give thanks to the gods of uranium and plutonium, and perhaps they will look kindly on you, when time comes for reaping.
