Heart of Stone

"Give it here", she asks gently. His trembling lips give away his false bravado, pleading eyes searching for truth in hers. Holding his breath he opens his hand exposing the fiercely guarded stone. 


This post inspired by The Trifextra Challenge! This weekend the challenge is to write using the word "stone" in less than 33 words. Be sure to stop by and read from amazing trifectians!


  1. In so few words, you've created two rather intriguing characters. The title works to add more to the story, too. Well done!

  2. Ooo I want to know what's going on! (:

  3. I really enjoyed this! There is a complete story here, and it is an unusual take on the symbolism. I'd love to see it expanded.

  4. Ohhhh, beautiful, Lucy. Gorgeous photo, and a touching, sweet piece.
