Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
After the technical difficulties last time, I’ve decided to move to a different short story, one that I started up at Odyssey. For the time being, it’s tentatively called “Love is a Masterpiece”, and it’s set in an alternate universe England in the Edwardian period, (so just after the turn of the 20th century, post-Victorian.)
When Cassandra and her mother got to Frigga’s Park, the line of couples stretched a quarter of a mile down the path.
“Are you satisfied?” Mother asked, brushing a curl of Cassandra’s golden hair back from her forehead. “You dallied long enough at the house that we’re late.”
“No.” Cassandra leaned in close to her mother. “Please don’t make me do this.”
Mother ignored her entirely.

I love mothers in romances. They always have their own agenda. 🙂
Sounds like her mother has plans for her. A moms got to do what a moms got to do! Wonder what it is?
History Sleuth’s Milk Carton Murders
This doesn’t look good for Cassandra…you’ve snagged my interest.
Has me wondering just what the rules are.
Interesting, certainly makes me wonder what will happen next. Great 8!
I’m guessing poor Cassandra’s going to be thrown at a man.
(This is a work in progress, right? The word ‘mother’ is in each of the four paragraphs, so maybe one should go…)
You’ve piqued my interest here… I am wondering why Cassandra is so hesitant, especially as her mother is do adamant about doing it. Mother-daughter relationships can be so challenging! Very nice snippet!
Oh god what is she trying to make her do?
