CASTLE OF LOVE
The stone structure was tucked back on a wooded down slope which fed the gorge. The court was littered with scraggy tufts of scrub clutching between what look like ancient, weathered tomb stones.
Living things dared not encroach.
She did see, yet she was enchanted by his simple words. “So pretty,” he said, she a princess, this her castle. He held her hand with a tender touch and looked into her eyes when he spoke.
Then, he pressed her against the cold stone with the full weight of his body, crushing the air from her cry.
She could not resist.
