The Queen of June

The Queen of June inclined her head.


'What have you got there?' she asked.

She was the sun's lover, and her skin shone like burnished bronze.

Her hair burned in clouds of bright, wild flame.

I hesitated, my fist clenched tight. 'Um -' when I glanced up, her golden crown dazzled my eyes, and I looked away again quickly.

'It's... I've got the key to winter,' I said.

She chuckled lightly. 'Good,' she said, with the slight edge of a sneer in her voice. 'Give it to me, and I will keep it safe.'
