The Glamour is PL OK, and ended OK, and I thank you for it. But it's a sad story! I know . . . . . I'm not supposed to re-write other people's stories, but I thought at the end it might have turned out she was pregnant, that hormones were the explanation for the cooling off, and that would have made for a more upbeat ending!

I think she was pregnant, that's why she quit her job and what she whispered to him. He was just a jerk and needed to grow up some, lol.

The Prussian Officer is PL OK. What a strange and mystical story! You really made it pop. :thumbs:
There is room for more, if you please. :D

Thank you!

That story gave me chills, so primal. Blood, fire, red hair, horses, devils, the woods, the moon - such passion!

I'll put my thinking cap on and see what else I can find.

Warmly,
Linda

I was thinking of The Selfish Giant, by Oscar Wilde. And / or The Nightingale and the Rose, also by Wilde. They are both relatively short, 3 and 4 pages, perhaps I could do them both? Thank you for considering!
Best,
Linda

The limit is 3 entries per album. Choose one for this collection, and save the other for Love Stories 4, which will follow on the heels of 3.
