Watching

June 9, 2010

From Three Word Wednesday

  The words today are: Hidden, Noble, Roam

Watching

Breathless, I crouch low and watch as the Prince and his entourage leaves the courtyard. I don’t dare move until the last hoof beat has faded to the night air.

Standing slowly, I remain hidden in the trees, ambitions less than noble, my eyes roam over the outline of the sensuous shadow hidden behind the bedroom curtain. Will tonight be the night she ends the game and invites me inside?

A sound of rustling fabric stirs my thoughts back to reality.

“Richard, is that you?” her voice from behind the curtain is soft.

‘Yes, it is I, your highness. How may I please you?”

“Come to me, my love. Tonight I reward your patience.”
