This will be my project for today and the upcoming Saturdays. A true story written in fiction, consisting of multiple parts. So please feel free to read and comment to your hearts content.
Heart ship. The quest for forbidden love.
As Captain I have set sail before. Last time it was on a ship called the ‘Yellow Rose’ A mighty ship that looked unsinkable. But little did I know of what the future held for me. It is safe in the harbour, no doubt about that, and some might say I was better of to stay. But as a Captain you follow your heart and dreams like a true adventurer.
The ‘Yellow Rose’ was build on a sturdy base, with little cracks here and there but nothing major, it was fixed with ease. The hull was wide and spacious, giving enough room to wonder around and easy to find a place if you wanted to be left alone. The mast stood proud in the middle of the deck with its root in the base. Able to hold the three sails to make a speedy get together. Yes it was a ship to be proud of and to sail forever with, around the world across the seven seas. On the bow a beautiful creature with long blond hair and curves that would make the waves of an ocean jealous. And in her hands she held a Celtic cross and a yellow rose, which is the reason for the name of this ship.
To be Captain of a ship like this made me a proud man, walking with his chest forward and chin up. Nothing that could harm me, I was superman. I was to set sail alone, this mighty ship, making it my home for the travels and adventures I was about to embark on. So I stocked up all that was needed, pride, love, honor, honesty and strength for the journey I was about to start, taking aim at the future.
Still unaware of what laid ahead I left the harbour with smiles and a waving hand, leaving behind family and friends to seek my happiness on the other side of this sea. Yes all this I did for a woman. The gentleman in me a hopeless honest romantic, the beast nothing more than a locked up animal, the knight always serving the woman in need. A professor with a smart mind to help make choices. And the Captain a Dominant who knows the ropes and steers with confidence.
Onward into the vastly wide open ocean ahead we sail with the waves being calm and the stars in an open sky with a silver glowing moon for our first day. I give the ship a kiss and ask for a smooth and safe journey. It might be the last time we ever be on the open water struggling with questions if we are going to make it. It feels good and real. The anticipation making my heart run wild as my trusty ship hits the open waters leaving a safe harbour behind and all of my belongings together with my trusty companion Milo my English Bulldog. It is the start of a new life, a journey of the heart.
Please join me next week, on another part of this journey.
