Daily Drabble – Steadfast

Tally had loved Rupert all her life. From childhood hero worship to teenage crush, to whatever it was that died inside her the day he married a girl from a wealthy family.
Not having been brought up to believe you could die of a broken heart, Tally married a tall young farmer whose calloused hands were always gentle on her skin.
Watching her husband cradle their firstborn, she found love for his steadfast kindliness.
So it was that, when Rupert came to her bewailing his mistaken marriage, she refused him.
What you need isn’t always what you think you want…
