Hawk sat close to the edge of the stream, feet just barely grazing the surface of the water. He felt the coolness of it, the contrast with the heat of the sunlight shining through the trees. Reaching inside himself for a moment, he closed his eyes and searched for a particular image in his mind.
It was a well, covered in mossy greens and browns, stones worn with age. No bucket sat at the edge, nor was there a rope to pull one up. The well only sat there, surrounded by the trees and growing things. If he stepped closer, he could easily see the surface of the water, even reach out to touch it. So he did. The water felt warm to the touch, comforting. He felt complete when he touched the water of that well.
