The End is the Beginning

Lord Wentworth’s eyes met hers before he looked to James and Andrew. “Your brother will be unhappy with me for revealing this. He wanted to tell you himself. I guess my being here… I should have known you had lost none of your wit my dear.” “Lady Eloise will do Sir.” “Why? You were mine…

Wordle #204 ~ Little Acts of Rebellion

She found him in the marsh on a dreary grey morning. He was barely breathing. She’d left the house as early as she could without risking to waken the occupants. They were getting bored and bored men meant danger for one such as her. In fairness, the stranger might prove as dangerous for her as…

Fascinating

The strangers with her on the rooftop paused in unison. It was, as if everyone realized silence and immobility was the only possible choice. She smiled. Choice could be a relative word with a witch. But she wasn’t responsible for her companion’s statuesque immobility. The fireworks, which just started, were. ©scolpron2018 (50 words) In response…

Changes to Come?

“Andrew, settle down.” Sally objurgated the young boy, which Eloise was not keen to do. She understood. There were so few visits and they lived a sheltered life.

Mother’s Love

Eloise felt the body nestled against hers, as she woke up and smiled. The feelings took her by surprise again; love, mingled with pride. Not once did she expect to feel maternal towards this little one. And yet
 She also knew Andrew’s nurse would be looking for him in this particular spot within a few…
