Future and past , will it happen again?

The next day my husband having to work , and on holiday!! I found myself wondering up the hill path from the farmhouse  to the castle walls and old town. If I was lucky not too many tourists would be around and I could find myself a quiet spot and spend some “me time” in the shade. The sun touching my face was making me hot so I tied my hair back. I could see for miles from the vantage point I found not unlike the spot I had discovered the day before. The sun was climbing high in the azure blue sky and I was happily drawing in my book.

Tieing back my hair

Again I felt myself slipping into that warm soft , edges fading place that I had been before. The old town, the people even the vista and the sun seemed to be reseeding into the distance and as if through a mist I could see, Carmel again. It looked as if she was seeing her husband,the  knight off on some conquest.

Carmel biding farewell to her Knight

I watched as she stood on some stairs to be at his eye level. As before they looked so in love, so close an invisible bond tying them together.

She still looked a lot like me, she still wore our shared necklace, I still knew that we were closely related. The years and countries between us were as nothing, we were close!

After a few minutes her husband ridden of to whatever quest lay before him, she dried her eyes and then saw me as I stood just opposite her. Smiling she looked towards me and beckoned me towards her.

I descended the steps and crossed the cobbled courtyard to join her. Have you had your baby yet I asked her, yes she smiled at me he was three now. OH! I said I am only a few months on since we last met. She just smiled at my reply I could see she did not understand truly what our meeting meant, well neither did I……………

    So much romance and intrigue attached to the Olde days of Knighthood and Chivalry.. Willow, and you’ve captured the ‘feel’ excellently… Enjoyable read my friend. xPenx

    Your imagination is captivating! Is that really you in the “tying back my hair” picture? I am always curious to know what people look like when I have crafted an image in my mind based on their words and thoughts 🙂

    Great work, as always my friend! I love it!

    Is that me, I wish, maybe 15yrs ago. No that is not me though I do have red hair. I am pleased you like this entry though as I am always unsure of how my straight prose comes across.xx
