Friday Fictioneers – Romantic Fiction – PG13

Atten-shun

By Scott L Vannatter

____

Alice stood stoically and sadly at attention.

She had been trained since childhood to be a guard.

It is what she wanted and what her father and his father had wanted.

_

Lately, however, she had realized how lonely it was to be on post.

The Palace was wonderful and every guard’s dream, but there was just her.

She could not even say anything to her replacements when they came on duty.

_

A young man walked past her.  As he did so, he stopped, and quickly, lightly kissed her cheek.

He did not see the barest of smiles on her face.
