Caption Challenge winner is: Rubix Cube

He was sent away in the beginning, when his powers were unexplainable. Men with helmets came and took him away. I remember mother crying. But there was one thing he could do that only I knew. He could read minds. When we met again as adults, we were strangers. I had never seen his face, and I was foreign to him. I was but crawling when he left. But when I heard his voice, I knew.

This was the voice that calmed my nightmares as a child.

Six-Word-Story: Corissa, Maiden of Praise

“Separated at birth, joined by enemies.”

March Prompt Challenge

And the winner is Anne of Lothlorien!

“He’s gone. You left him. You left him. You left…”
“I know!” she gasped to the icy gusts, dropping to her knees, her mind tortured with images. His gentle face. The blood on his back. The look in his eyes when she had fled. Pain and love. Such a deep love.
Her grip loosened from the flagpole and it fell to the ice. The sword in her other hand dropped until it too rested on the ground. It was over.
She had left him when he needed her. She had run when she should have fought. And now he was surely dead, and she was paying for it.
She just wanted to die.
She wanted to escape her haunting memories.
‘Please, let me die.’ She closed her eyes for what she hoped was the last time.
“Elyn!”
Her mind reeled. It couldn’t be… but it was his voice.
‘Get up. Open your eyes.’ She desperately wanted to, but she couldn’t. She was too cold.
“Elyn!”
She felt a warmth drape over her, and then she was being lifted, and carried away. Was she dead? Was this the White Shore?
Three words were breathed in her ear, in that voice she knew.
“I love you.”
She opened her eyes.
It was him. He was carrying her, wrapped in his cloak.
“I found you.” He said. “I love you.”
She reached up, hesitantly, and touched his cheek, wanting to be sure this wasn’t a taunting dream.
It wasn’t.
“I love you too.”

Caption Challenge winner is: Corissa Maiden of Praise

“I think of you every time I brush her hair- it reminds me of the gold coin you gave me the day we met. I doubt not she would release me if I asked it, but she needs me, my love. Not only is she my mistress and my queen, she is my friend- and I am perhaps the only true friend she has left. A year’s delay will not diminish our love for each other- not even the fires of the east could do so. And so I’ll wait.”

Six-Word-Story: Fereleth, Carrier of Light

‘Race against Time, fighting for love.’

Caption Challenge winner is: Rebecca

She laughed, a broken sound that was full of hidden sorrows. “And what would I tell them? They cannot know, cannot understand, what it means to gamble an entire kingdom-and lose. I will never reveal to them our betrayal, nor burden them with a legacy of shadows.”

“I was supposed to retire five years ago. This was supposed to be my last case. And I suppose, technically, it still is. But I never thought it would take this long. I’ve never failed before- I’ve been too stubborn. Prideful. But five years… and here I am, talking to your picture. I’m sorry Kenneth, but I have to quit before I snap. Good-bye, brother.”

And the winner is Corissa Maiden of Praise!

You forgot your gloves.
I glanced at my hands as frustration swept through my body. Of all the things to forget… it wouldn’t have been so bad if it hadn’t started to rain.
I sighed as the torrent increased. It seemed even the heavens were mourning for me today.
They’re not mourning for you, idiot. They’re mourning for him.
I wanted to scowl at the voice inside my head, to argue with him, but all that came out was a sigh. He was right, and I was too overwhelmed to fight a losing battle just now.
I reached inside my coat to insure that the gun was staying dry. My stomach churned as my fingers grasped the cold metal barrel.
My whole body tensed, and I glared fiercely at the street below. It wasn’t as if this was my first assassination; why was it so hard?
Because this time he’s your friend.
I swallowed the catch in my throat and tried to ignore the voice.
Because this time…
I tried to tune out, but I knew what was coming next and couldn’t stop the thought.
He’s your brother.

Congratulations, Corissa! Seriously, I want the rest of this story now.

And now for the next prompt.
