FFF# 114 The Duke

In a 100 words no more or less, here is my 114th Flasher Fiction Friday. Look to this link to read other great Flasher Fiction posts from great writers. Flasher Fiction Friday


The Duke

The Duke of Almodovar del Rio of Spain looks out towards the water. Alone within the large castle, he wished he could find his Duchess. Single, no heir, and the last of his family line, he had to find her soon. He has lived for centuries, but he was not like the others of his kind. He loved the villagers that lived near. Many of the village maidens would come to visit. Yet, none pleased him enough to be his…except one. He caught her gazing up at the moon. He instantly sensed something different about her.

“My eternal...bride…my Duchess.”

“Forever.”

Great story, so much packed into so few words, emotive and inspiring.

And you'll have to expand this story. Something like a 5k word story. This is good; it left me curious to know more.
