As I wrote in the last post I think the idea of writing ten-line tales is amazing and as a tribute to Erin Morgenstern I have in fact written about two people falling in love in a circus. So here it is, my tale:
A Destiny-Altering Performance
The first time he saw the late night performance in the circus he knew nothing would ever be the same.
The implication of these magic tricks was almost incomprehensible.
He knew deep down in his heart and mind that he too was meant to achieve great things in the world of magic. Even change the world.
Making his first experiments on people he realized that the consequences could be grave indeed but considering the purpose of his actions he knew he needed to pursue his destiny.
The first time he saw her he knew that their destinies were intertwined. She knew too but none of them knew exactly how.
He was falling in love with her and utterly seduced by the magic she was able to perform.
She was falling in love with him too but uncertain of his emotions towards her she wanted to make sure that he loved her.
When she enticed him with her magic she created an illusion that was too strong and too far removed from reality.
He walked right into it and got lost.
And so it was that because she didn’t trust him to feel the same way she did her love remained unrequited and her fears turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy.
