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

For my A-Z Challenge I'll be sharing the A-Z of the hopeless romantic me. There will be an A-Z Buck List of  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, so there will be a special treat thrown in for those who share my obsession... let's face it... what's romance without chocolate? Plus, every girl has her favorite sappy song list. Enjoy!

Just Over The Rainbow
Letter A
The Acropolis 
 Athens, Greece

Chocolate... What else?
Letter A: Chocolate Avocado Pudding
I made this... no child in my house approves.

Being a hopeless romantic, I am a sucker for sappy love songs. Enjoy today's pick. Etta James, AT LAST.

After this was posted I came across a challenge within the A-Z challenge on Rach Writes. So, I'll give it a shot and keep it with my theme. Of course tragic romance is my favorite. The origin of my posts actually start with another challenge of hers. You can read the real beginning HERE. This is the picture prompt for her flash fiction challenge, and my first "A" entry following.  
Alone was always easy for me, but loneliness was overwhelming. Jonathan said he would come, but my heart feels his distance. Something was wrong. This was the place. He promised to meet back here when everything was finished. When all the bad that had taken hold of our lives had ended. It had been months since we parted and being without him felt like an eternity. Now time passed slowly, and the hour we were to meet had long gone.

Her heart began to race. What if he had been captured? What if he had been found? No one could be trusted, and Jonathan told her the only way to be together again was to run. He was going in to save his sister, and then he would find her. It was dangerous but, all the horror he would face was nothing if it meant freedom for those he loved.
