My entry into the /r/fantasywriters monthly writing competition for February. This is behind a cut, because there are some rather explicit aspects to this story.
‘In honor of Valentine’s Day, this month’s challenge is about romance. Competitors are invited to write a fantasy story of 1,500 words or less that centers around a romance. Depending on your views on the holiday (lame cliche or adorable love-fest), your interpretation here may be different. Happy couples, doomed/star-crossed lovers, love spells, and unrequited love are all welcome. All that matters is that your fantasy story centers on a romance of some type.
