HARLOT


HARLOT

Mary caressed the photograph remembering their honeymoon in the ancient capital of the Burgundy province of Dijon, France. The wonderful romantic strolls through historic streets while planning their future.

"You said you'd always love, cherish, and adore only me, but she entered your life, and I no longer exist. Her emerald eyes, cherub cheeks, and that melt your heart smile.

"I've lost you my love, but I refuse to admit defeat, and I will never accept this harlot.

"Despite your assurances you'll always be mine, I hold no love for our daughter. She is the ruination of my life."

  12. So sad she turned out to his daughter. Maybe things will turn around for the family later. Very intriguing story, Yolanda. Nice one.

  13. Oh dear. Something is very off in that family. I can think of at least two different ways it could be.

  14. Thanks everyone, for stopping by and commenting. I couldn't post individual responses this time due to time, and because I wanted to post on every participants page = over 90 of those and that's a big, big job. But I appreciate you stopping and leaving a few words. This was meant to show that a mother - daughter relationship can go sour just moments after birth. A jealous wife feels slighted when she sees the love the father holds for his first child. Again, thank you for taking the time to read and comment - it means the world!

  17. So many ways to interpret this: Dad's a paedophile, Mum's a jealous bitch, Daughter is manipulative, &c. Good piece.

  18. Good but sad story of a troubled woman. She needs professional help and quickly. She's really confused. It's a shame this sometimes happens. Well done, Yolanda. ------ Suzanne

  19. Good story but I feel for the daughter. Not nice being blamed for the breakup of the marriage. They all need help. Fancy calling your daughter a harlot.
