Like hair upon the scalp, sprouts of beach planets clustered near, yet not too far from the reach of the grabbing waves. And cradling between the spiky arms, Kumar trotted. Lifting with his head held high, a content looked kissed his face. The ocean’s whispers comforted him like a mother’s touch to an upset child.
Wiggling his tail confidently behind him, his long blonde legs began to ease into a lope.
It felt right. The way his heavy paws planted into the malleable, easily spread sand.
As old as the ocean was, it was young and playful to Kumar. Skirting to closer to the coy waves, his large frame recoiled from it’s ticklishly cold touch, only for him to return to it, flirting.
Sand flew up behind him, wet and dry alike, muddy clops of it landed with an invisible shimmer or a blop.
It sucked that he had failed the hunt, but everyone did something…. Running around the coast got his blood pumping, it made him feel good, feel proud of who he was.
Daniel, Damien, and Komet were most likely around, but for now, it was about him, skirting into the plants only to wrap around and dash back to the shore, a game of tag all to himself….
