FB3X Drabblerotic A to Z 2015 - Z is for Zaffre (Blue) - (fiction)

This post contains adult themes.
Fantasy Boys XXX is joining in the The Blogging From A to Z April Challenge with Drabblerotic 2014

where will be posting a drabble* every weekday and Saturday in April brought to you by the letters A-Z, although this isn't Sesame Street, so expect a little adult spice in our alphabet soup. ;) Our theme this year is colour.

PLUS - if you'd like to add your own drabble, then please do, just put it in the comments, or post on your own blog and link in to the list at the bottom of the post :).

*'So, what is a drabble anyway?' we hear some of you ask. And the answer is, a drabble is a piece of prose of (exactly) 100 words. 

So, without further ado, onto today's drabble...



Z is for Zaffre (Blue)

Author's Note

It took me ages to figure out what to write for this one, in fact I only finished it yesterday. Then I went and looked up Zaffre and it's defined as a pigment created by using impure cobalt arseniate and this idea was born.


by Natasha Duncan-Drake

They call me Zaffre - it means impure. My eyes are blue instead of brown and my hair has white-blond streaks. There has always been Sidhe blood in my family, but it has never bred to be seen before.

"Hello, boy."

I turn when I hear the voice ready to defend myself as usual, but the man standing there just smiles. His eyes are light blue, almost clear, and his hair is silver. Something in me can sense his power.

"Would you like to come home?" he asks.

I nod before I think about it and take his outstretched hand.

  1. Depending on how long the Sidhe live in this 'verse this may be Zaffre's close relative. The offer of home and acceptance has to be attractive to Zaffre, after carrying around the name he was given.

  2. J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge - where I am part of Arlee's A to Z Ambassador Team.
    Welcome to "Z-day"! (Time to watch the iZombie television series?)
    Hope to see you at the after party. I'm looking forward to when the Reflections Linky List opens on Monday May 4th.
    Oooh- I like the story! And I love the color history for your word. Great job.
