F… is for… Flash Fiction #atoz

'Marriage Proposal?'

George knew she was his damsel in distress, an English rose needing to be saved, protected from the false knight’s armoured horse powered truck.

Dairy farmer by day, George was asleep in his bed when Estelle knocked on his door, her car broken down.

Wanting to lay down his life for a chance to make her happy he invited her to use his telephone.

Proffering tea, a warm chair by the aga, he wondered, could he win her heart?

An old knight at 59, past his prime, but if asked, Estelle would have lain beneath the stars with him forever.
