Ice   1500.00.04  
Creators: Ellen Million (Writer)
Iremima handles ice for the first time.

Iremima was nine when she first saw ice. Growing up along the southern coast near Duurludirj, she had seen frost only once, and the short-lived sheen bore no resemblance to the fascinating solid chunks of water floating in her drink now.

It was shockingly cold, and it made her glass haze and become so slippery that it took a great deal of concentration to hold on to it. The sensation of drinking cold liquid on the hot day was a shock, and she had to switch hands frequently, staring at the neat squares that grew smaller as the drink got shorter.

Author's Notes

A result of the October Muse Fusion, prompted by Deirdre Murphy and Kathleen Coburn.
