Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Continuing with sentences from ‘Love is a Masterpiece’ this week. Cassandra and her mother are talking about why Mom has taken her to the Tunnel of Love to see the goddess Frigga:

“I wish to love no man because a goddess decrees it so. You have satisfied my mind that Geoffrey North will be a good husband. I can see that he works hard, keeps his word, and that he cares for me. Allow our hearts to come to love in the natural way. Do not subject us to Frigga’s whim.”

Mother brushed at Cassandra’s curls. “You say this because you do not know the fleeting nature of ‘natural love.’ If I could have frozen the love your father felt for me into a stone, I would have cherished it all the days of my life.”

    Hmm, now I feel like I understand the mother a little better. She’s trying to get a blessing so her daughter doesn’t lose her husband’s love, like she did.

    Life doesn’t work that way, normally. I agree with Cassandra–natural seems a better way to go, even if it ends some day.
