The Fluffiest story ever written 
by Blodeuedd

She was running for her life, tree branches hit her and she felt blood trickling down her face, but she could not stop, she would not stop. She heard hounds in the distance and she knew they were coming for her. Soldiers, looking for those who got away from the assault on the village. They had spared no one as they came in the middle of the night, burning and killing. She had seen her brother killed before her own eyes, as he had helped her get away. The tears she had tried to push down came forward and she fell down in the mud.
“Must go on,” she whispered and groaned as she stood up. It hurt so badly. The yells in the distance came closer and closer. She ran into the darkness of the woods and slipped again. This time she did break something and for a little while she just lay there, wanting to give up as the pain in her ankle throbbed its way through her body. She looked up at the moon though the trees. The clouds had pulled away and now the forest was lighter and she closed her eyes. Even the Gods were not on her side this night. But she got up, limping and crying and listening to the beat of hooves behind her. They were catching up and soon she would die, all alone.
“There she is!”
The words echoed through her head as she realized that it was too late, much too late. She fell down again and awaited her cruel fate. She hoped it would be quick. She cursed herself for not taking that dagger and ending her life because she knew they would not just kill her and let it be.
The footsteps came closer and she held her breath. Should she fight? Maybe they would kill her faster then.
The voice, she looked up and saw his face all lit up by the moonlight. Her savior.
He smiled and took her in his arms.
“I am so sorry my love,” he whispered. “I came too late with my men, but we did save your parents.”
At this she started to cry again and he held her even closer and the warmth from him spread though her cold limbs.
“I will not let anything ever happen to you again,.” He touched her cheek and kissed her.” Tomorrow I will marry you, you are my princess and you will be the People’s princess. No one can stop me, I almost lost you today.”
“I love you,” she kissed him and she knew then that she would never long for anything ever again.


This one is for Ana, who said she had to have a HEA or she would just die. She is quite the HEA lover ;)

*Ana drops dead from fluffiness but then returns to life to communicate her opinion*

Oh dear. It was quite a ride. I hoped you meant it as a joke but it was truly fluffy!!! "My princess, I will marry you tomorrow!" I almost gagged reading that line! You are my fluffy queen Blodeuedd, never, not even in 100 years will I come close to this!

*Evil laugh*, I knew you would hate that last part ;) That was truly for you hihi.

But wasn't it cute! Awww, she got her prince, very nice. But I truly had to bring in some darkness first or I would have suffocated

Yeah, the darkness was misleading at first - and then she falls right into the arms of her beloved...sorry too much sugar, I must fetch some lemon juice. I hope Emrys has four more wives. And a dozen of children to prove his virility. *evil grin*

Hey, none of that talk. Emrys has no wives, no kids, hell, he might even be a blushing virgin who has waited all his life for that special one ;)

Even though you had to do the happy ending, I still like it. I'm a little bit of a romantic at heart.

I must admit I liked it too, I think that it was the darkness that made it so, because I could still have a little twist and then a wonderful HEA. So it was more fun

Hey! No whip this week! :D
Aw... I think I'm more shocked that you gave us an HEA this week. LOL

I liked it! But then you knew I would be happy with an HEA didn't you? ;)

Re: Hey! No whip this week! :D

I suppose the next week it will be the same, right? If you had so much fun...

Emrys is a virgin? Well, Melissa seemed to want some erotica installment, you can go that way *evil grin*

Re: Hey! No whip this week! :D
Oh no, no no,I can do fluffy but passion and smexing, I will blush to death.

And well no he is not, but he might be if you try to give him any wives and kids

So he is not a virgin? I knew it, he has a harem of mistresses and concubines! ;D I think I might challenge you to write an erotica installment. We might keep it secret though. What do you reckon?

Arghh, you are wicked. Ok I declare him to be untouched, because he knew that when his true love came along he would only have eyes for her. There! ;)

*iz scared*

You got first!
