Friday Fictioneers 1/31/13

It’s time again for Friday Fictioneers! I love this. Thank you Rochelle for hosting this.
You really need to try it.



**Till Death Do Us Part?**

The very first time they laid eyes on each other we knew.
Those of us who had worked on bringing them together, we felt it.

It was impossible not to.
I smiled as I touched his carving.

Death wouldn’t be able to keep them apart.
The realms of heaven or hell couldn’t separate them.

He died tragically, no one dared to tell her.
She came running to the site before anyone could send her word; felt him ripped from her.
While weeping over his corpse, she passed.

Now with this, I looked at the carving once more, they’ll always be together.

  10. Oh, nice, Mari! They’ll be together for all of eternity. It reads a little like a poem. I took a similar, although darker, approach!

    Very tragic, but still a lovely little story.

  12. Dear Mari,
    The ending put me in mind of the ending of The Notebook. Not so tragic an ending because they didn’t have to live without each other. Good job.

    Dear Mari,

    You crafted a moving love story this week. Tragic and fraught with emotion. Well done.



  14. Very tragic end, and what caring friends they had. Some couples are just made for each other.
