100 Word Challenge - Greater

What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, authored by the superior Velvet Verbosity. The word this week is "Greater".


100 Word Challenge



No, None of Those


"Name for me, Fair Princess, things think you great."

"Why, Sir Knight, what is this tease?"

"There is no play in this. What say you?"

"Well then. My father's sword. Surely the King's sword is great."

"Not great enough."

"The King's castle, then. There is no greater building in all the land."

"Not great enough by far."

"The kingdom, then."

"No."

"The World."

"No."

"The Sky, the Moon and all the Stars."

"No. None of those. None of anything you could conjure in your mind. All those things, great though they may be, my love for you, is the Greater."

Greater than the sky the moon and all the stars, that's True Love. Beautiful.

Aaaawwww! I'm such a sucker for any tribute to true love. It is the greater thing by far! Well done.

Swoon. Gotta love a romantic knight. Willing to be his horse is white, too.

Now, if I could just find a knight in shining armour to say that to me!

I'm picturing Ulysses' return to Penelope after his exploits. Very romantic and as Ms. Marsha said, squishy inside. ;-)

I can't come up with anything more profound than "awwwwww...."
That was great (sorry!)
