The promise

 

Last minute decorations were being added.

 

Excitement permeated the wedding venue.

 

 The Bride felt nothing except anxiety.

 

 She loved another.

 

The bridegroom arrived amid loud fanfare.

 

Everyone rushed to welcome them.

 

The Bride clutched the phial of poison tightly. He had promised…

 

Suddenly the gaiety was disrupted by a band of masked men on horses.

 

They fired.

 

Bandits!!

 

People screamed.

 

The gang leader scooped the bride up on his horse.

 

As they rode across the border, the bride hugged the Bandit.

 

 “I was so afraid.”

 

“You needn’t have. I never break a promise,” replied her lover, hugging her back.

Carpe Diem-Tan renga

Carpe Diem’s Tan Renga Challenge #20, Joanne’s “Autumn Leaves”

 

At Carpe Diem, this week’s Tan Renga Challenge is started with a haiku by Joanne of 4Joy. She wrote it in response on Garry Gay’s 4th Special and it’s a stunning haiku. The goal is to write the second stanza (7-7) to this Tan Renga started by Joanne. 

Stanza 1 (5-7-5):

autumn leaves
myriad shades red and gold
begin to fall as snow                                   (Joanne)
 
Stanza 2 (7-7):
 

saddles her winter horses
snow flakes ,frost and hail follow                  (Atreyee)
