Erzulian Thoughts...

Erzulie steps into the elevator before a stranger glides inside behind her, barely making it in. Before gluing her eyes onto the metallic elevator doors before her, Erzulie casts the first and last curious glance on the gliding being who is now standing as still as she is.

Frisky Erzulie: Hot damn!

Conservative Erzulie: Now now, behave…

Frisky Erzulie: Did you look at that face!

Conservative Erzulie: For the love of God, keep your head down or keep staring at the elevator doors. POSTURE!

Frisky Erzulie: He’s quite tall…and I think I saw a nice nose…

Conservative Erzulie: You saw NOTHING! Feet together, keep that bored, slightly serious and insipid look on your face and you’ll be fine…

Frisky Erzulie: *grumbles*

Conservative Erzulie: Yes yes, grumble all you want. He’s probably married. Or he’s possibly one of those lazy bums who sit in the nearby mall’s cafés with equally arrogant, mindless friends who sip crappy, over-priced coffee whilst watching women flit around. He may be just a pretty face with a black heart. Or maybe he’s a drug dealer. Or a pedophile. Or…

Frisky Erzulie: Are you sure you’re not paranoid and neurotic Erzulie? Why are you so pessimistic? What if he’s a bright and actually good-hearted person?

Conservative Erzulie: What if he is? What are you going to do? Congratulate him?

Frisky Erzulie: Maybe just, “Congratulations on having a beautifully sculpted face.”

Conservative Erzulie: Yeah, such profound thoughts will last you long…

Frisky Erzulie: *sigh*

Elevator door opens and both Erzulie and the mysterious looker silently part ways.

Frisky Erzulie: Good bye my handsome prince! *prances around while tossing rose petals in the air*

Conservative Erzulie: Come along now and quit dawdling on outrageous assumptions and fantastical thoughts that amount to nothing…

Frisky Erzulie: Crap.

Conservative Erzulie: I heard that. We share the same space, remember?

    miyafushi: :P~

    don veto: Don't drive and read! Tsk tsk don!

    shoosha: :)

    don: I actually don't like Freud. Although there's a lot of truth to his theories, I hate how his conclusions are most aptly placed on himself. And thanks :)

    peony: Seriously, it's like "Oh? What's this now? Something looks nice and scrumptious..."

    ms. baker: :))

    jacqui: Well, I could've written about the other Erzulie's in me, like the maternal, aggressive, trickster, or off-beat Erzulie...but I think these particular ones fit the scenario :P

    Hey Erzulie,

    I think this piece is one of the best things you've ever written. It sounds simple, yet it's very complex. Absolutely love it :-)

    word verification still drives me mad by the way :-)

    hazolat: Thanks :)) I was hesitant but then I thought, "Why not praise a beautiful creation?" :P~
