I'm originally from Northumberland, but at the moment I'm studying English and Creative Writing in London. I spend a lot of time on trains, so I write. I struggle with romance, or rather, it struggles with me. I want an adventure. This is where I am.

You'll end up as a story. Make sure it's a good one.

PROMPT: Imagine This

My parents met when my mum snuck out to a party at sixteen. No, earlier.

My parents met when my dad hanged her Garfield toy from a window in school. No, later.

My parents met when they started talking at a reunion for their Air Cadet squadron. They were both engaged to other people.

My parents met when they broke up with their partners and agreed to start again. My dad was punched in the face.

My parents met on a morning in April when my dad got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. I have that ring now.

My parents met on a morning in November when they vowed to love each other forever. The promises have been broken.

My parents met on an afternoon in February, when my dad moved out.
I know it's not very happy but it's the only family love story I know
