Her Shoes

"And this is where he caught her after a long chase..." the tour-guide mentioned waving her hand.

"Lover's Point!" the sign-board informed.

"Yes! King Raj proposed to Rani here! She agreed to be his queen!"

"Did she have any choice?" I remarked looking at the steep fall ahead into the sea...

"Why did she run all the way here on this rugged path?" I wondered aloud trying to put myself in her shoes.

"The romantic setting!" the tour-guide winked.

"Her shoes are in the local museum; the same ones Rani wore each time they visited Lover's Point after their wedding..."

Have you come across any interesting display in a museum that you still remember?
100 Words story for Friday Fictioneers


  1. Dear Anita,

    Interesting that her shoes should end up in a museum. But when you're royalty it stands to reason. Nicely done.



  2. Now that's what I call choice. "Do you want to marry me? Or would you rather ...."

  3. Cute tale unless there is a more sinister element underlying it. Well done

  4. Most of the times, those women didn't have much of a choice. That's the sad reality. I'd have wondered about the same thing in the protagonist's place. Well done!

  5. Well told, Anita. Nice to have the contrast between the love story of legend, and a present-day take on the situation.

  6. Ah, sweet story, Anita. I really liked it.

  7. Nice story and sweet. Love romance! :-)

  8. Awww. They lived happily ever after :)

  9. So she had to take the plunge, one way or the other :-) Looks like she took the safest option. Nice one.

  10. I guess he did a very, very good job of catching her.

  11. Depending upon the PoV, the story can be interpreted in a couple of ways. Nice intriguing story, Anita.

  12. Creative and contemplative story and love the photo!

    Happy Day to you,
    C & Z

  13. The final sentence appears unfinished. I'm wondering what happened at Lover's Point after the wedding...!

    My FriFic tale is called Jim and Jan!

  14. It's clear you wonder if she was running away rather than heading for a romantic spot. Did you find out the truth?

  15. Hmmm, definitely leaves you wondering....well done!

  16. What an intriguing story. Great writing.


Your words mean a lot to me.
