Massage Therapy – #drabble

Massage Therapy

“Aren’t you tired of this?”

“Of course I am, but how else can I watch over them these days?”

“Still, there has to be an easier way besides breaking your back all day.”

“It’s a small price to pay. Besides, that’s why I have you. A little to the left, if you don’t mind.”

Epione does as instructed. She moves her hands over Atlas’ strong back. Perhaps he is right. Someday these mortals would need them again. They always screw up when left on their own. It’s only a matter of time. Soon, too. She’s already seen the cracks forming.

  1. sure, the mortals would need them again and soon

  2. Looks like the poor chap needs to retire to an old statues home! Great take .

  3. LOL! I didn’t notice that either. Does look like he’s getting a massage. I sure hope those cracks don’t spread too quickly! Sounds like the world needs Atlas watching over them. Great story!!

  4. I could do with a massage too !

  5. Now that I look at the picture again, the slab resting on his shoulders does look as though he’s getting a deep tissue massage.

What's on your mind? Let me know!
