Monthly Microfiction - The Future

The Future

    Dido woke after her magical night in the cave with Aeneas. Her first night with a man since 

her husband had died. Dido’s heart was full of a mix of joy and guilt, but she knew that her 

husband would want her to be happy.


    She got dressed and joined Aeneas outside. The scent of last night’s storm still hung in the air 

and Dido inhaled deeply. Aeneas cut a handsome figure against the sunrise and Dido imagined 

their life together as king and queen of Carthage. 


    But Aeneas’ eyes were already on the horizon and his future in Rome.
