Prayer by Moonlight – 100 Words

She gazed longingly out of the window at the rising full moon. It never ceased to captivate her.

It meant so much.

It was by the full moon that she first met her husband and he captured her heart.

Of course, he had his faults, he could pontificate for hours about the rights and wrong in society. On balance though, his passion outweighed his pomposity and she loved him for it.

Now he was off fighting for his cause and he would be looking up at the same full moon.

Quietly, she said a prayer for his safe return.

A Truthful Mirror – 100 words

They’d spent a fortune on building the house. They’d built on a new wing, added balconies and white columns. Inside it was even more opulent with marble halls and a sweeping staircase with a gilded wrought iron bannister.

She’d purchased an antique mirror, the owner had told her it was magic, she paid through the nose for it, but didn’t believe it for a minute.

She stood outside her new mansion, paid for by the man she’d never loved, and looked into the mirror. It reflected the only true home she’d ever had. The plain shack she’d grown up in.
