Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Three Hundred and Forty-Five

She was fourteen when her father sent Blondel away.

“He’s poor. You’ll soon forget him.”

Faith said nothing, but she knew the minstrel took her heart with him.

At eighteen she was as beautiful as her father was wealthy, but she set her face against every suitor who came to her door. Her father gave her an ultimatum.

“Marry or I will disinherit you.”

She left the castle under the cover of darkness and none saw where she went.

Blondel wandered the world in search of his lost love.

Some say he found her. 

Others insist he hunts in vain.
