The Castle – Flash Fiction Writing #FridayFotoFiction

He was the king of millions – feared by the farthest enemy.

When not on war, the King of Kings, Lucas III lived his ostentatious life in the most immodest boastful way.

Courtyards crowded with fancy women, wines flowing from fountains, Golden chandeliers – the royal palace was an imposing spectacle.

The King of Kings, had several such grandiose palaces where he travelled throughout the year.

But little did people know why he visited the old castle in the hills every few days.

Under strict instructions no one was ever allowed to visit the castle other than his two trusted guards. He himself took the boat across the river.

Lucas III had six wives and several courtesans at his disposal, but little did anyone know about his better half – the man who he loved, the man in the castle. A love that even the King of Kings feared to accept openly.

    OMG. This rings so true these days when men leave their wives for other men! Loved the twist in the end.

    Killer twist right there at the end! A king could do anything except love another man. Unfortunate that teh law still exists in my country.

    This is a smart connect, Tina. M sure there must be men in the olden days who had feelings for the same sex. Unfortunately, in their times, their love had no place in dreams also.
