I raised my left foot, preparing to walk forward, wanting to see and feel more of this magically time-less world, when the colors of the entire spectrum suddenly shifted again.
The world wasn’t perfectly still anymore. The station looked as if it was melting away in feverent heat. Lights and shadows warped, slanted and intertwined.
A shadowy figure was racing towards me, slowly gliding through the air, sending black streaks of swirlies behind it. My last thoughts were how the swirlies remind me of tea that slowly dissolved inside water, when the shadow collided with me, sending us both tumbling backwards in slow motion. During this spectacular flight I managed to blink a few times, and at the exact moment when my back collided with the cold marble floor, the shadow materialized into a female shape. The swirlies dissolved completely, releasing a girl dressed in an outfit of a fashion that I could probably never imagine even if I’ve worked as a fashion designer for 200 years. Her outfit was a silver mess of flowing curves and shifting lines, above which I could see the Romanesque cubical ceiling of the train station. The ceiling lost most of its color and was smudging up, becoming hazier, as if I was seeing it through a strong current of water.
Fiery, amber eyes stared at me coldly, first in surprise, then in anger, then in confusion. Musical tones and strange sounds started pulsating on my nerve cells. The sound was coming right from inside my mind and not from her lips; forming into flowing; perfectly clear words of her voice. 
“Infinium Magnum! What? Hey, what do you think you’re doing? This isn’t a jump terminal!”
“Ah… ah I tza” I uttered, unable to say anything intellectual at the moment, captivated by those fiery amber eyes, orange tinted skin, sparkling crimson hair and the constantly flowing suit that followed every single tiniest contour and bump of her body.
“Who is this divine creature, I wonder?” I thought, staring back.

Illustration for my sci-fi novel, Chronoscape.

The moment I saw this picture , I knew it was from Vitaliy Samarin. Your style is very distinguishable. Say , this might be a dumb question but what did you use to do the backdrop? Also that guy is based on your appearance , yes?

love your story and the painting
the narrative has a nice engaging modern day street speak ,
and the aspect in the painting showing the lofty station hall
puts the viewer right there in it ,
the womans outfit is indeed awesome and fits your description as
shifting flowing apparel
its good how the other punters don seem to notice the kerfuffle
hmm , yes , maybe , id love to meet her
great work !
