Word of the Day Challenge: Yugen

Yugen – an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and powerful for words

Warning: reference to a (fictional) drug

“What is it?” Amelia asked, turning the leaf over in her hands.

“It’s called Yugen, because that’s what it gives you.” Sophia grabbed the leaf and threw it on the ground. “Don’t touch it.”

A jolt of fear shot through Amelia. “Is it poisonous?”

“No, but it’s horrifically addictive. Puts you in touch with the universe in a way that’s hard to let go, even when its effects wear off. Trust me, you don’t want to go anywhere near that stuff.”
