Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser

Welcome to this week's Tantalizing Tuesday where we pick any picture that captures our fancy and write no more and no less than 200 words!




I looked across the rugged moor to the still imposing stone structure. I couldn’t explain how, but it called to me on a primal level. I felt a deep connection as if I were coming home. I knew I belonged here. The clean crisp air settled in my lungs and I felt the urge to get nearer. I never thought I’d get to visit Scotland yet here I was. But I was nowhere near close enough to the intriguing ruin. I felt a compulsion to get ever closer. I had to get closer. Stepping away from the other tourists I started to slowly walk across the uneven ground and barely noticed the furrows. The low scrubby vegetation scratched at my feet through my inappropriate sandals but I barely felt the abrasions. I wasn’t really sure how long it took me to cross the damp soil but soon I was standing alongside the pebbled shore staring longingly across the still waters.

And that was when I saw him, beckoning me to his side. He was huge and I couldn’t be certain if he were ghost or reality. All I knew was his heart called mine and I was prepared to answer.

Sounds like you're onto a timeless ghost romance story. Something tells me that these two have met before... a long long time ago. Okay, I'm just dying to read more.
