Haha! 🙂 Divine story!
Not half as divine as you divine Julietta!

A sweet tale indeed. It got me to thinking and I submit for your enjoyment my first 50-word story.
Once there was a prince who did want to be a prince. He rode out alone, into the night. He returned an old man. He dismantled the castle, and made many houses. He chose one wherein to spend the rest of his years. And he did.
I like it. He found himself a cat too, and maybe even a pretty wench.
I’m glad you like it. This is the first new piece of fiction I have done in years.
And perhaps he did.

Life is like a story of chocolatiers.
Possibly Three Chocolatiers.
And I don’t know why Dumas didn’t think of it first.
Kind regards from a chocolate fan,
I tip my hat to you Randy. I like your comments.
