Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Continuing with sentences from ‘Love is a Masterpiece’ this week. We’ve been learning more about what Frigga’s tunnel of love means to the other couples waiting in line, but Cassandra hasn’t stopped looking for a way out…

When she thought Geoffrey was busy enough with another conversation, Cassandra leaned close to Henry and whispered, “Would you like to make a little money?”

He shrugged, his eyes steady on her face and his mouth an even line. “That depends on what I’d have to do to earn it, miss.”

“Just pretend to get into an argument or…”

Raven cleared her throat. “You want us to create a disruption or a distraction. What will you do then?”

Cassandra hesitated, not sure how she could explain.

“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.

“I hope Frigga blesses us all,” Faith said. “There are other things that matter more than the sentimental gifts. She judges the love in the couple, doesn’t she? I think that’s our best hope. Julian and I love each other so much. If the goddess is pleased she’ll preserve our love forever in its full beauty.”

Cassandra kept her mouth shut. What if Frigga judged Julian and Faith’s love strong but fleeting, and decreed they should face a loveless marriage sooner rather than later?
