She was all alone, facing the vastness. She gazed and squinted, but the immensity was greater than what her eyes could capture. The harder she tried, the harder it was to draw the borderlines. She closed her eyes and gave in to the quiet rush. The crisp cool water was dancing shyly around her ankles. The billowy breeze kept on brushing against her bare skin and hair. She could taste the saltiness clinging to her lips. When she opened her eyes, the sky was a dome of gold, and the beach was the crystal reflection of it. The gold melted into blood orange, and then into pink. It was surreal. It was breathtaking. It was Paradise, she thought.
