The A-Z of The Hopeless Romantic Me: Letter C

For my A-Z Challenge I'll be sharing the ABC's of the hopeless romantic me. There will be an A-Z Bucket List of romantic places to visit I like to call Just Over the Rainbow, and you all know I can't let a month of blogging go by without chocolate, and chocolate is part of romance, don't you think? Plus, a list of fabulous songs. That's right, sappy love songs... I can't ever get enough of those!

Just over the rainbow letter C

My romantic indulgence for the day. Chocolate Cookie Dough Cake.
What man wouldn't want to be stunned by this? Of course I will share the recipe!

My fantastic love song for the letter C... Come What May from the movie Moulin Rouge. There's always that one song that can make you dream about the kind of love you want. This song will take you there.

My continuing flash fiction A-Z challenge from Rach Writes. The picture prompt and my letter C challenge follows.
“Come back to me.” My only thought as I watch the water lap onto the rock where I sit. Jonathan was strong. He would find his way here, and perhaps he would bring others. He would never leave anyone behind.

Her thoughts went back to a time when anger separated them. He had changed. She saw it in his eyes. She heard it in his voice when he promised her forever. His love for her had carried him through years of torment. He never let go of the thought of her, and now, she had to believe he would find his way to her one last time. The warriors Jonathan led, five of their strongest, were going to destroy what they could and free as many as possible. Others were scattered and waiting.

The air seemed to sour. She was right. Something had gone wrong. They were coming.
