Two love stories

He loved her. Chocolate brown. He had seen the love in her eyes. Sea blue. He had dreams in his eyes. Bottle green.

It was too much of good things. The Devil came. Put her into a maze. Thick Walls. Blinding dark.

She cried. But waited. She had hopes. Her saviour would come. She knew.

He had to save her. His friends, parents warned him. People called him a fool. But he knew what he wanted.

There were witches and dragons. Spirits and sorcerers. He fought them all. As he did, he approached the last Wall. She was inside.

A pair of fluttering hearts. Each with its hope on the other side of the Wall.

His hammer worked. In the darkness. Tireless. Patient. She waited.

Finally the hole in the Wall was big enough to see through. She looked through the hole. And a cry escaped her lips-

" YOU !"

He stopped in his work for a moment. And Went on. His hammer worked in the darkness. Tireless. Patient.

  10. let's see now.ambivalent.equivocal.brusque.visual.tickles the reader's imaginative faculty.almost elegiac.but follows the "stream of consciousness" mode.an element of the supernatural is also present.almost fatal.a mini epic of sorts...our protagonist traversing to fight for the good...he reminds us of a tragic hero almost!maybe loving her is his fatal flaw!
