Writing Prompt Excercise — 100 Words

There are things her friends don’t understand about love. She can see it when they talk about their latest crush, about marriage, about the fairy tale ending they think is coming.

She knows that love doesn’t always bring with it a happily ever after.

She knows. She understands. She’s watched, for her whole life, as her mother tried to save a beast from himself with the force of her love. She’s seen so many of Beauty’s tears fall without making a man out of the monster.

Her friends don’t understand that sometimes, love itself is the curse in the story.
