Cursed Love Contest

For those who are damned…

This contest is designed for writers and readers who enjoy a good old fashioned cursed love. A type of love, that no matter how hard the heroine or hero obsesses over their love it will not be returned and if it does? It comes back demented or cursed.

In 690 words or less give me a cursed love story that will leave me begging to turn the page.
