Hers for the taking

This week (Fiction) Friday has challenged us to write about our character stealing something then rationalising her actions


They weren’t hers to take but stolen kisses taste the sweetest.

She stole a lock of his hair while he was sleeping. Hers for the keeping,

and then she stole his heart.

She felt no guilt, no shame. After all he gave himself to her willingly.

Didn’t he?

  4. She sounds creepy and is likely to start boiling bunnies... beautifully crafted in a short space.

  11. I think - that after the lady steals a lock of hair. . . that free will is no longer in play. You did a nice, lyrical job on this one. Thanks for the read.
