Short piece for Friday Fictioneers. Prompt is image of Gaudi building, copyright – Kent Bonham.
It was love at first sight. How could one not love this building. Those shapes, those lines, those windows (see its soul). The colours, that fringe of green.
Of course there are others. I’m essentially monogamous, but also feebly human. Think Chrysler, Guggenheim, Notre Dame. They have all stolen my heart at one time or another.
But this time it’s different. This time the building returns my love. It phones me day and night, sends postcards, blushes when I walk by. It’s stalking me.
I’ve reported it but the police say I’m imagining it. “You! Who would bother with you?” they say.
