The servant girl handed her a folded note and ran off.  Making sure she was alone, she opened it.

Come to the garden.  Meet me by the old king.  I’ll be there waiting.    R

Gathering her skirt with both hands, she ran toward the back of the estate, past the stables and toward the woods.

She entered a small clearing.  Breathless, she clutched  the front of her gown. A few feet further, she found the statue of the old king, covered with moss and lichen.

She heard a rustle behind her.



She rushed into his arms.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

  1. Dear Lily,

    I love a happy ending. Nice one.



  2. Lily, I’m visiting from the UBC. Your 100-word fiction is so brilliant that it brought tears to my eyes. I’m a nonfiction author, so I especially appreciate those of you who write fiction.

      Oh thank you very much! I’ve only started writing fiction lately. I didn’t think I had it me. It’s fun and stress relieving!

    Is it really Friday? I have entered a magical realm!

    Good use of one hundred words! Keep at it! I love the image of the King you have chosen.
    Do remember to spell check, though. Her name should be Marian.
