The boy spied the girl and caught his breathe. He was enchanted.
His attention was noticed.
‘Stay way she’s a married woman you are courting danger.’ said every voice.
He said hello. She glanced at him thought he was intriguing. No men spoke to her, she was well and truly branded.
They exchanged words, wrote letters, met secretly, longed and lusted for each other. Every roadblock they encountered they negotiated. In time they discovered a love they cherished.
A plain boy loving a girl he treasured and a beautiful girl loving a boy she adored.
