Labour of Love

Is it absurd to love someone you’ve never met? He sometimes wondered. But he felt he knew her well, even intimately, better than he knew anyone else. He couldn’t help but love her: she was fascinating, mysterious, and lovely. Or so he pictured her.

Her life was a glorious trail. His life was dedicated to following that trail and laying it bare for all to see. This was all he had ever wanted to do.

Sometimes he mourned the fact that they would never meet, she could never thank him for all he was doing.

The beauty has come.


Unrequited? Never. Who could resist those eyes?

  1. Interesting, and good. I like it, although I can’d decide whether your main character is pure awesome manliness or a pathetic loser. It’s kind of a toss up depending on the readers perspective.

Let me know what you think...
