After stepping back from prompt writing for a time, I decided to give it a go again, writing from this week’s prompt on the 100 Word Challenge from the wonderful blog, Julia’s Place. The prompt this time was “the flame flickered before” and here is my offering….
A love song
I knew of him, I dreamt of him; the flame flickered before I ever heard his name or saw his face. In my dreams he would sing to me, my troubadour of love. For what seemed like an eternity he was just a fairy tale; my prince who would come to rescue his princess from a life of imprisonment, lonely like Rapunzel in the tower. Then one day I heard him sing, the dream came true. It was my love, singing to me – and my heart heard him – the flame of eternal love now burns bright.
