Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
Continuing with sentences from ‘Love is a Masterpiece’ this week. We’re learning a bit more about what the tunnel of love means to the couples waiting in line…
“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.
