Inside the Mind of Isadora

Friday Fictioneers – The Honeymoon


Dear Mom & Dad,

I’m sure this ‘Thank You’ note seems quite contrary to my persona, but it’s no-less sincere.

I’ve realized how my past ungrateful behaviors have hurt you. I apologize for it all.

The incredible gala you created for my marriage to Harry left me breathless. 

As I’m sitting on the balcony with this magical view of Portofino, I’m tearful of the years we’ve missed together. Milestone celebrations; each lost along the way.

Your description of our honeymoon get-a-way was on target, to the last detail. 

Spellbound describes how I feel today.

All my love,

          I simply needed two names for my characters. I have no clue about Meghan or Harry’s lives. Thanks 😎

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  2. A sweet story, realizing the sacrifices of her parents and expressing her appreciation. What every parent wishes to hear.

  3. At last she is realising her mistake. The house is bringing the change in her. Better late than never to have said sorry.

    • My plan was to show the power of recognizing the errors of our ways in general for all who live with altercations. I didn’t relaize when I selected the names for the characters that it could be interpreted as a story about the royals. Thank you for commenting, Abhijit.
      Have a wonderful week … Isadora 😎

  5. A lovely story, Isadora. Her parents gave the young couple a great gift in that honeymoon so deserved an appreciative note. This couple is starting off in the right way. Hopefully, it will continue that way. Well written, 🙂 — Suzanne

    • I’l have to be sure to use non-newsy names. LOL
      I’ve been doing, Seyi. Taking each day as it comes. I’m hoping
      to do a post on a recent stressful time. I still can’t seem to write it all down.
      Life is about our journey’s. The ups and downs and the ebbs and flows.
      We aren’t given any struggles we can’t handle.
      Yes, it has been a long time. Hope all is well with you.
      Have a wonderful week …
      Isadora 😎


  8. What a lovely thoughtful letter to write, Isodora. To be so honest and heartfelt means a lot. A gem of a story.

    • Thank you, Keith, for your very nice comment.
      I believe we need to let those we love how much they mean
      to us before time runs out and we cannot. Children need to express to parents
      how much they appreciate the things they sacrifice to do for them.
      Have a great week ….
      Isadora 😎


  9. Your story seems to have headed in a direction of its own and become a story of the royal despite that not being your intention! Nice one.

    My go at Friday Fictioneers!


  10. Sense of humor is always good … and it does look like a honeymoon place!

    • I thought the place had a great deal of potential for a honeymoon vacation.
      I’d never want to climb those stairs everyday. LOLOL
      Well, maybe, I could do a Fred Astair dance up the stairs everyday …. NOT !!! 😁
      Thanks, aFrank. Have a super Tuesday.

  11. Querida Isadora,

    I’m not sure Meghan owes her father any kind of apology. 😉 IMHO. Love the letter for this magical couple. Bien escrito mi amiga.

    Shalom y abrazos,

  12. A little bit of satire added to today’s mix of interpretations. 🙂

    • Hi Sandra,
      Welcome and thank you for commenting. Yes, I was going for a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor. I’m trying my hand at approaching the prompts with a less drama and intensity. I’m not sure if I’m going to do well in that genre. 🙄 Thanks again …

  13. Like Larry, I almost missed the connection. How sweet!

    • I wish Larry was right in his connection to the royals.
      I was searching for names for my story and Meghan came up first.
      I thought I’d add Harry as a bit of humor. It’s a story more about
      parents and relationships to their adults kids. Thank you for commenting.
      I appreciate it so much.
      Isadora 😎


  14. They spent their honeymoon THERE?

    • It’s a coincidence that my story is thought to be about the royals. LOL
      I just happen to have used the names for my characters. I have no clue about the royals and their issues. : O
      The story is about reconciliation. Parents are always neglected when it comes to their adult children appreciating
      the sacrifices they make. I was trying to show it’s possible for them to realize it even if it’s late.
      Thanks for visiting, Iain.
