Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
Continuing with sentences from ‘Love is a Masterpiece’ this week. Last time, Geoffrey interrupted Cassandra’s attempt to run away from the line of couples waiting to go into the Goddess Frigga’s Tunnel of Love.

Soon Geoffrey was exchanging stories with them all, as Cassandra stood back and watched. The pocket watch man’s name was Julian, and he’d been married to mousey girl, Faith, for one week to the day. The teenagers were Henry and Raven, and they were from the East End.
“Do you mind if I ask you about your gifts?” Faith asked. “It’s a horribly personal question: what do you pick as a sentimental sacrifice for a goddess?”
“It’s hard to find something with the right emotional impact to show the value of a life full of love,” Geoffrey said. He produced a canvas and unrolled it to show an oil painting of boats in a harbour and gulls in the air. “It doesn’t look like much, but my grandfather’s best customer gave him this thank you gift, and passed it on to my father as a housewarming gift.”

Hmm, this leaves me with questions as to why he’s leaving a gift for the goddess…what is he asking her for?
Nice worldbuilding here and I like that it’s not so simple
Interesting development, can’t wait to see what happens next. Intriguing snippet!
I like the very subtle emotion you introduce in this through objects! Beautifully done!
Nice choice for a gift! I think the goddess will be appeased. 🙂
