from Beyond the Deep Water by Ivette Martinez

Copyright © 2018–2020 Karla Martinez


The sun is bright in the middle of the blue sky. Heavenly.

The countryside is always clear and radiant, thanks to the sun that showers everything with its light and life. The vast landscapes are full of fresh pasture. Grass that grows generously in the open field where an ocean of yellow buttercups blooms to its full wonder. And this is what Camille enjoys the most about springtime, the season of rebirth and restart.

A perfect time to feel the gleaming sun on her skin. Burning it enough to give her a little color, it also helps to ease her sorrow. Even with her eyes closed, Camille can see the brightness of a sunny day behind her eyelids. The fresh air makes its way inside her nose as she inhales to let it purify her body and spirit from the night before. The low winds invite the grass to dance beneath her body. Camille concentrates in the gushing lullaby that soothes her silent shame. It blows again, stirring up the smell of mud and nature around the lake. Birds chirp as they take off across the heavenly blue. A pleasant sound of life that brings her joy even when she needs to cry. Majestic.

The crystal-clear water of Blue Water Lake, her favorite place in Primavera Town. A giant creek that takes its name from the beautiful aqua color that takes over the water. A marvel that's like a mirror laying on the ground, reflecting the firmament and its glory.

And just like the sky; the lake doesn't seem to have a bottom. At least no one has ever made contact with its floor, which is why it brings curious visitors all the time. Making it the most important treasure of this exclusive town. A place that is named after the exquisite season of Spring. It's a place everyone visits, but not on normal weekdays. And, this is the perfect time for Cam...
