Heart Ship! The quest for forbidden love.
So the fight is on with, as he so bluntly puts it, her owner. A lord with good friends at the army and across the country because of that. He holds up his ring as proof he owns her. And he will take her home. Storming at me his fist held high ready to take the punch. I am able to dodge his punch and deliver one of my own, but his whale like blubber fat absorbed the energy.
I knew about this man and knew the things he done. Black eyes, broken teeth and bruised ribs just to name a few. What it was that brought us together was based on none of that. So there was no pity or sadness to begin with. I came to know about him during our journey of getting to know each other. Making me more and more determined to help her escape her open prison.
I am able to hold him and tell my angel to get away and be with her sister just to be safe from him, doing all I can to keep her unharmed and time to flee. Yes I was a true knight getting hurt in the progress. Getting punched and landing face down on the pebbles and having it rubbed in by a foot. As beautiful as my night started so rudely and bloody it was ended. I need to get her away from him, this awful man. But how? Is all I can think of, not even hearing him scream any more I loose consciousness under a blood red moon, with the memory of her smile.
The morning sun warm on my bloody chest and face. Blood dried and pulling skin as I move around. Heads hurting, like a stampede of bulls trampled me, eye closed with dried blood as well. Slowly getting up, on hands and knees first before trying to stand. I wobble to my boat spitting my mouth empty trying to get rid of that awful taste of dried blood and push it back into the water. I roll into the boat and have a quick thought. We sure need to be more careful if we want to meet again. Needing to find allies in our search for escaping the Lord’s castle.
With pain in my back, arms, head and eye, I row back to the ship. Without any notion of direction I row till I hear a sound of wood on wood. Or have my ship in my sight. No idea how long it took me, no idea how long this day has been going on I am enduring the pain of a fight gone wrong. A sound stops me in the water and yanks me of my seat, with teeth crunched together I turn my body and head to see where I ended up. It was my ship the Yellow Rose, I made it now I needed to climb in. I take a hard look at the small ladder and take a deep breath before climbing up.
Another entry of Heart Ship. Pain is obviously something subjective but I can still feel it. Though it has been a long time ago. Even my heart is being embraced by a storm during the write. Crying, screaming wanting what once was. Hope you enjoyed the read of this story.
