The Earth From….

I don’t know who these characters are.  They won’t tell me. ^_^  Anyway, this scene was inspired by a picture prompt from the WriYe DreamWidth.


50-ae4ea605ebIt was strange, looking down at the world from so far away.  He’d heard it said that such a view reminded one of a marble, but he’d never imagined that might be the truth.  Now, though… yes, it looked very much like a marble.

However, it wasn’t a marble on inky blackness.  There were stars!  Millions of stars surrounded the marble-like world.  Not only that, but the world itself seemed to glow with a faint light.

“It’s rather beautiful,” he murmured, “isn’t it?”

His companion frowned thoughtfully.  “From far away, anything can seem beautiful, I suppose,” he said.  “It’s only when you get close to something that you see the flaws – the ugliness that’s always there.”

He turned away from the view to stare at his partner.  “Flaws can be beautiful too,” he murmured, “in their own way.”  Then, before his partner could reply, he turned and walked away.  He’d had enough of such thoughts for one day.
