Heart Ship! The quest for forbidden love.
It became a night to remember under that tree. Enjoying the rain dripping on our body. Steam coming from our skin as the cold drops touched our heated bodies. To feel her in the most intimate ways. My heaven was right there and then. Our screams became howls into the dark rainy night. Till we paused and calmed our hearts to have that long talk we both have missed for such along time.
For days, weeks I roamed the seas working. Scraping together money for a life here on this island. Her eyes turn sober as the subject is about her home. Finally I notice her bruises on her arms of fingers. I was on high I did not even notice when I touched her. Not a facial expression hit me as one of pain. How and why was this still happening. My heart ached, my body died and my soul went for revenge. I was torn.
She was held by law, The law of church. Both deemed her not worthy for compensation or divorce was out of the question in the name of the church. Nobody to help her and he could just terrorize her. A demon in a human skin. A wolf amongst sheep. Feared by friends and foes. Here, right now she mattered and there was no more talk about him.
To hear he torn my last letter and she figured I was sending them still but he intercepted she kept believing. She stood there smiling. This tree would become our gathering. Just far enough from him and close enough for her to see if would be here. For every day it got rough on her she would leave the candle unlit. To tell me she wanted to see me the morning after.
We was going to fight of a monster. Who had fingers stirring in different bowls. But we made a choice and were determined. As the night became more dry we sat there watching drops of rain glide past the leaves. Just a little longer together.
Falling asleep was not part of the plan, not that we had any for that first night But being woken up by birds singing. She rushed back in to her home. Having to be there before he wakes up. Our departure was hasty with just a quick kiss and a smile. I could not keep my eyes from blurring up the view. The night has ended, The fairy tale abruptly put on hold. Do I believe. My heart was racing thinking of this one night we made love in the rain.
The tone has been set and a plan is made. For us to be together. How we are going to defy him and fight against the laws written. No woman should go through this. No man should abuse and get away with it. I smile feeling the cracks of the bark under my finger tips. I sailed the seas to be here roaming the lands and creating a home. I came this far. And here to stay.
That concludes Log Entry 24. May it have been to your liking and a fun read. It was a nice day to remember, and also why I fight for woman against their abusers. I seen it up close and hope to maybe make a change for at least one.
