Cupid

Post by flyawaybefree » Thu Oct 07, 2010 2:46 pm

I looked at my husband, sleeping soundly in the bed, tracing the line of his jaw with my eyes. My wedding dress was still draped across the chair in the corner.

I couldn’t explain it. I used to love him so much. Yesterday, I loved him with my whole heart. I dreamed of spending the rest of my life with him. Today, I couldn’t care less. His devotion was rankling to me.

I could feel something stinging in my back. With one hand, I pulled out a small leaden arrow dug into my shoulder.

“Goodbye,” I whispered, and left him.

Great story. So this must be when the cherub was just starting out and the effects of the arrow were short term. I mean "happily ever after" is a pretty tall order.

I wonder if the arrow was made of gold before she lost her way?

Yes, I imagine the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics means you can get gold to turn into lead, just never the reverse.
