Bag End

Day 14: Card: Lust


~~~

Each year, Lobelia visits relatives each year, strung out between Sackville and Hardbottle, juggling harvest and husband, house and babe. One babe only, though. The family both families whisper. She knows they think her ill-wed...

But she doesn't want them anyway she knows what she wants, she thinks, she believes. Bag End! The longing wears her thin, but she'll have it! She and Otho for Lotho.

And she doesn't notice the deepening silence that she's more often on the road than in someone's home. That even Otho's grown silent.

Yesteryear's bounty bitters like vinegar, makes triumph a lonely prize.

~~~

Notes:
1. Using the Thoth deck equivalent of Fortitude in this case, modern meaning of "lust"
