How is it that you light the fire, my dear? I watch you gentally reach out and caress the logs and sparks with disconnected adoration. You tend the flame patiently, though it's passion runs about like a madman in the fireplace. I watch you with eyes dually enraptured and full of respect. That fire will never burn you my dear, that fire will never burn you.

The following comments are for "Hephaestus"
by Darkshine Raven

Yeah, I kinda rushed myself in titling it. Hephaestus is the Greek God of Fire, and I just wanted something to say that this guy is a god of the element he's dealing a sense. It's very metaphorical though, about my boyfriend and how he deals with relationships, love and all that. Thanks for the positive comments Pene! =D

This was an intersting piece and certainly "flash". At first it was merely interesting, and titling it after the gods actually made me think of Hera musing on her much different son, and idea which I might run away with at a later date (if you approve). But your explanation illuminated it quite a bit and added depth. I suppose it's one of the joys of flash fiction to see only one thing, and then another in the same. All the same, and interesting piece.
