Turn (G, Gen, Fantasy)
by Sophie Duncan
Chin resting on her hands, hands on the table, Kelly watched the last few grains of sand run through the slender aperture into the bottom of the timer. She smiled, reached out and, with no little effort, flipped the large device. Instantly, the golden sand began to tumble again, slipping and sliding over itself, quickly making a little indent in the otherwise smooth surface of the encased dune.
Another year marked: Kelly nodded to herself, satisfied, and, stepping smartly to her left, settled her chin on her hands and watched the amber cascade that was dying in the next bell.
