Wonhundred Word Wednesdays


Prompt: The truth about love is...

The truth about love is, you don’t get to pick who you love. Believe me, I’ve tried. Princesses aren’t supposed to fall in love with stable boys.

“Can I assist you with anything else, Princess?”

I gazed into his handsome face. Oh, how I longed to run away together. But if caught, his punishment would be death. I wouldn’t risk it.

“No,” I told him, patting my horse on the nose. “Thank you.”

“Princess?” called the voice of my intended. I gazed at my love, then followed my fiancé back to the castle.

The truth about love is, it’s doomed.

See what the others had to say!

:( that's sad. But good for her to protect him from death. So glad we don't have to marry people we don't want.

I just LOVE the line: "I gazed at my love, then followed my fiancé back to the castle." So much pathos right there.

Hmm, wonder what the stable boy thinks? This could be a fun! Nice tension from the start.
