“Judith, I’ve always loved you – it’s taken a long time to tell you how I feel; I was terrified, I suppose. Your husband will kill me – if he finds out.”

“We mustn’t, darling.”

An attempt at a 33 word love story for Trifecta . Wow, this was really challenging – as they always are…

    Well, there’s problems with this story. Someone’s going to get in trouble. Fun spin!

    Very naughty. I like it! Amazing what a scant 33 words can do, eh?!

  4. Joules says:

    I love the darling at the end. It heightens the drama, classic movie style.

    I think the “darling” is what sets it off and actually finishes the story. The idea is 1880s – 1920s English romance, the classic ‘stiff upper lip’.

    And perhaps in those times he would actually still have killed him. I mean, duelling was forbidden but still big for a very long time.

    Thanks for linking up to this week’s Trifecta Challenge. I’m with the others in loving the “darling” here. I see this whole thing in black and white with lots of lace and maybe a smoking gun. Nicely done. Hope you’ll come back and join us for the weekday prompt.
