The Lifesavers

A young woman in a red dress rushes from an open gate through the snow and ice, followed by a white stag. Original painting.

Story: I raise the gate and rush outside without thinking too much about it. Well, no one has every accused me of thinking too much about anything. You regard me for a moment with those soulful eyes of yours and then set off after me. There is no moment of indecision for you, for your heart won't allow you to act any other way. I have run out into the snow and ice in answer to a cry for help. I am compelled to respond, and I know instinctively where I must go. Once I arrive, I will know what to do, not because I'll have done it before, but because I am equipped to handle things of an urgent nature. I am calm and considered when I am called upon to act quickly and decisively. I save lives. And when, after that is done, I unravel a little, when the rush of adrenaline leaves emptiness in its wake and I feel the cold all the way to my bones, you will whisper my name softly and we will make our way home together. There is often much fanfare about my actions, but rarely is there any mention of you. Yet we are both lifesavers. I know that.
