“It’s not all about the presents or the love what’s already bloomed,” Henry said.  “I’ve seen it time and time again back home.  We find somebody new to try our chances with, pay our ha’pennies to the wise ones, and come up with any old thing what has some memories to it.  Doesn’t work often, no, but if we can’t stand the sight of each other after we’re through the tunnel, it’s no skin off our noses.  But when Lady Frigga blesses a lad and a girl, they’re good together.  I think that’s the key; she looks at what could be, not what is already.”

 

 

Other people in line shared their stories:  an older couple, widow and widower, lost childhood sweethearts prevented from marrying with their hearts when they were young; a poor knight and a rich man’s least favourite daughter who had come together for a marriage of convenience; and unfaithful parents attempting to mend their cheating ways.  They all showed off their sentimental sacrifices, but Cassandra couldn’t bear to look at more precious personal treasures thrown away for the sake of divine love.

    It’s a lot to give up a sentimental something, an item that holds so many memories–but maybe it’s worth it?

  11. I’m not sure I would like to have someone else decide what my future is going to be, even if I make a lot of mistakes at least they are my own.

    I still think this is so clever. What if the gift isn’t good enough? What if the Goddess says know can they do it anyway? So many possibilities to keep me intrigued!
