Overwhelming impulses

As Pelion and Dundee leaned into each other along the quiet tree-lined street in Devon, a soft winter’s breeze embraced them. Pelion knew she was in love. How she had fallen for him was a complete mystery that needed no unraveling to figure out. She had simply  let bygones be bygones, forgiven every single fault,…
