Cassandra’s descendant

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Janet Webb

Peter came from a family of diviners. He saw her for the first time at a formal dinner and recognized her as the one whose portrait rested along the so-called Lycurgus Cup in his attic. He knew that she was the spirit that would lead him to his true destiny.

Peter courted her; and they were soon married.  Within a short time he was advising world leaders.

Unfortunately his in-laws were unhappy as they felt that their daughter had lost her spirit post-marriage. However, her portrait glowed with life and the cup glittered with her incandescence in the attic.

Words ~99
The exercise of true magic does not require any ceremonies or conjurations, or the making of circles or signs; it requires neither benedictions nor maledictions in words, neither verbal blessings nor curses; it only requires a strong faith in the omnipotent power of all good, that can accomplish everything if it acts through a human mind being in harmony with it, and without which nothing useful can be accomplished. ~ Philippus Theophrastus Bombast of Hohenheim aka Paracelsus

  1. I’ve seen plenty of people who’ve had their spirits drained by marriage, but this guy is something else … world leaders advised by a practitioner of the dark arts? It certainly makes me wonder, looking at some of the leaders in real life, but we will probably never know, even if it would explain a lot!.

    • Thank you so much for the read and a perceptive comment. The dark side of magic is not so covert. I can give a few examples but this is not the right place and yes it would certainly explain a lot.

I love arguments
