The Greatest Treasure


Bronwyn grew up in the forest. One day a tree spirit gave her a vision: “Over the hills is this palace, and inside is the greatest treasure.”

She wasn’t one for riches, but unable to shake the vision from her mind, she packed up all her things and left the forest. She journeyed over the hills, until one day she saw the palace.

Inside there was a room with a woman sleeping there, the same age as her. Bronwyn touched her hand. The woman awoke. “I’ve been waiting for you.” She said. For the first time, Bronwyn felt love.

I wrote this for the Carrot Ranch Rodeo Three Act Story Competition. I’m hoping choosing to write on a same-sex relationship theme wasn’t seen as trying to be sensational by the judges. It’s usually what I write about, and I’m certainly not going to change that for competitions.


I have thought about expanding this story, but I’ll leave that for another time.
