Friday Fictioneers – The Fleeing of Juliet

“I will not marry him.”

Destiny did not prepare the gardener for the sight which greeted him in the morning sun. The noble daughter, sweetly sipping tea while admiring roses, and her gentleman courter writhing in dewy grass. Life did not prepare him to grab the unwitting belle and drag her to a horse.

“You have to go.”

“I will not.” Thin arms surrounded his neck.

Romeo ushered his Juliet onto the nearest mare with a promise he would not be far behind.

I wish I could say the story is only similar in name.

Alas, it ends the same.

    1. Thank you for reading. I had a couple of ideas actually but this was the one that materialized. Reading through a few others it seems I wasn’t the only one! It’s interesting to see when people come up with similar takes on the prompt.

Why not tell me what you think ...
