August drabbles - 21

Puppet Master (5 - the Secret)

Seasons changed and fortunes grew. Alisha’s parents recovered their gold, and nobody knew why Alisha lay growing sicker alone in her room. For a deadly secret was killing the maid, a truth she’d told to none but the lantern that lightened her evening shade. “I love him.” She had loved and he was gone.

After many long years a boat came to shore, its master grown weary and old. He carried a lantern, came knocking at Alisha’s door.

Alisha brought her lantern too, and both the lights spoke truth to lonely hearts. “I love you Alisha.” “I love you Mark.”
