    O the beast! Untamed and untameable, but she fixated all the same, but yet, ultimately denied. What a bounder, what a cad!

    If only he’d paused for a moment to stroke his beard as well as his ‘tasche, she might have been in with half a chance lol 🙂

    Have a great week.

    Namaste 🙂

        Indeed, it was not her day for Love…she chose a waggish rogue – perhaps it was the allure of a ‘bad-boy?’ 🙂

        Some battles of the heart we win, some we lose, some we wish we’d never been part of.

        As Oscar Wilde once declared: ‘Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.’ Ce la vie.

        Take care. Catch up next week should you partake of the challenge.

        Namaste 🙂
