The Great Selkie of Sule Skerry
An Overwhelming Heat
Suddenly she remembered herself and tried to push away. She was stopped when he gripped her by the shoulders.
‘The village need you, I need you please don’t do that again.’
He released her, and she turned heading once more for the cottage.
Thoughts ran through her mind.
‘What was I thinking; of course the village need me.’
‘Wait did he say, he needs me? Why would he need me, he looks well enough.’
Shyly she turned her head to look back at the stranger, why did she feel so shy what is it about him. He strode a few paces behind. Probably worried she would try to walk into the sea again.
She stopped and turned to face him full on. She had been a timid fool, like a damsel in distress, but no more. She stood firm in the sand with her hands upon her hips.
‘Who are you anyway? I don’t even know your name.’
The man stopped; taken aback by her confident stance, in the past women had always swooned at his feet. Múirne, he had watched over the years she was a strong confident young woman he wanted her. He hated to take advantage of her now she was low after losing her grandmother but it was time.
‘I am Solas, though some call me Sol.’
‘How do you know my name?’
‘I told you last night the villages speak highly of their nurse. They miss Brighde but are happy that you have taken her place.’
‘So you are not from the village, and I have never seen you around. Where are you from?’
Sol smiled at her sudden questioning of him.
‘I live beyond the cliffs, but come over this way for provisions. I fish these waters.’
Múirne pondered these answers and seemed to be satisfied. She turned back once more and resumed walking, heading back home once again.
Thank you for visiting
