Let’s see what I come up with today:
She was a delicate butterfly, standing at the kitchen window in a castle of bamboo.
The island leader was known as The General, reputed to be fair, but firm, reguarding the young females of his people until they reached maturity.
This one was special and he wanted to take her for his own. In exchange for one thousand golden pieces, she would be his and he would honour her with the heirlooms from his ancestors. He knew he would have to tread carefully so as not to frighten her with the tempest of his passion.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
I think this is a very good write! Still the idea of buying a wife is distasteful to me… His offer of 1000 gold pieces seems a paltry sum as a Bride Price for someone so desirable!
depends what age we’re in and how much one piece is worth in our currency I suppose.
I do like the castle of bamboo. Poor thing. Even with all his riches I see that bamboo as a cage-like structure. I guess because my grandmother had an antique bamboo cage, just for plants, no birds.
Nice word use! As always…
This feels very feudal, perhaps when the Vikings were walking the earth
