Wedding Vows Quoted
Couples wedding in the Roman Catholic Church essentially make the same pledge to one another. According to the Rite of Marriage (#25) the customary text in English is:
I, ____, take you, ____, to be my (husband/wife). I promise to betrue to you in good times and in bad,in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.
In the United States, Catholic wedding vows may also take the following form:
I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded(husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,in sickness and in health, until death do us part.
In the Alternative Service book (1980) Version A
I,___, take you, ___, to be my wife (or husband), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God's holy law, and this is mysolemn vow.
This was written a long while back.
Just a compilation of my contest submissions all in one place.
Fun stuff, hahaha.
When there is nothing but silence, the only thing hanging in the void is the ever haunting love I have for her.
Experimental Piece. I was just playing with the structure and timeline.
Keep in mind, the story happens in a span from one leap year to the next leap year.
This is a short scene of a girl running through a darkly familiar city being chased and haunted physically and psychologically by her past. She's in a state of denial on how much her past has damaged her. She refuses to relive the memory all the way until the end when her love demonstrates how far he will go to reclaim her happiness.
I'm not sure if I'm going to do anything more with this piece. I might add to it, but for now it's just gonna be as it is.
This was originally inspired when I sat down to write for <https://www.penana.com/story/4114/a-scene-on-romance/>
But then it ended up being too long, and I really liked it as is to shorten it. So here's the full piece. Guess I'll just have to write an actual romance scene for the challenge. X D hahahaa.
Anyways hope you enjoy this piece.
Brief experimental piece.
It's a play on the simple question in the title, all the way to the ultimate question fueled by the seductive curiosity seeded within me.
Each part is opened with either a varied question of the title, or a varied statement of the title. The question is followed by one perspective, and then the statement is followed by the slightly opposite perspective.
Ever get stuck sitting somewhere. . . words stuck in your throat but you can't make a sound, simply because it would seem like the world will collapse in on you when the words come out?
Ever have a confession you can not make to the one other person?
This was my moment. My moment when I swallowed my words and felt the world tunneling in, simply because I loved a man I shouldn't have. Because the guilt of loving the man I shouldn't has worn itself thin as it chipped away at my moral soul.
It's a quick piece expressing the sensation of grasping at the edge of death. In this story the girl fights from slipping under.
An older piece shared on my fictionpress. I'm just trying to find a new take on my writing style. Some pointers would be wonderful for future stories written in the same manner.
