The Fool's Bargain

by Alexandra Erin


"Tell me your desire," she said.

"Peace," I said.

"That I cannot give you," she said.

"Love," I said.

"That I cannot give you," she said.

"Fulfillment," I said.

"That I cannot give you," she said.

"Sex," I said.

"That I can give you," she said. "But it will not make you happy."

I accepted.
