Challenge - 'Fairytale'The shape appeared out of the grey veil of rain like a spectre. Just a shadow against the vertical lines of falling water, the legs lost in the grey mist of surface spray so the figure seemed to be floating along a couple of feet off the ground.

And then Marks truck was past him, and he couldn't even see the figure in his rear view mirror. The view had been so brief, and it seemed so strange that anyone should be walking along the dual carriageway at all that Mark began to wonder if he hadn't been seeing things.

A solitary cry escapes.
Her serene marble-like stare,
Keep in Touch!
