A Tale of a Blacksmith
Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is coming. We all get blinded by love, and do foolish things. Meanwhile, we don’t see the truth, the real emotion, and sometimes how one-sided love can be. It isn’t until we are away from that love and heartbroken that we can see. No matter how much you put into the relationship they are not happy, because usually, they are not happy with themselves.
At one point in my life, I dealt with a lot of animosity while dealing with an X, child support, and the two court systems, family court and district court. Many of you might have an idea on what that is like. This placed a lot of pressure on my mind, affecting my new relationships, my work and business, and the bond between me and my children.
Time soon pass by, and I started over. All the issues flowed away, but the hurt and anguish remained, along with the animosity. My mind lead to terrible thoughts, even though I knew I could never followed through with any. I began to read the book called, ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff’ by Richard Carlson, PhD which helped me to put all things into perspective.
I came up with an idea to write down a scenario story to make me smile, and I’ll be darned if I didn’t like it. A Tale of a Blacksmith mimics my life to a certain degree, and also shows my mindset as far as I would say “Karma.”
A Tale of a Blacksmith is set in the mid-evil days, so I could use the wise old wisdom from a dragon. As you read, you will see the man’s stupidity and blindness, and think to yourself, “Nobody can be that naïve.” Let me tell you, it happens every day. Just watch Court TV. So, the phrase, love is blind stands true, and looking back, I realized it started within the first month of my relationship. The lies, and manipulations lasted for thirteen years of marriage before I woke up. Being that I had five children, I don’t regret my decision. They all turned out great, despite what happened in their young lives. I am proud and love them all dearly, even though they are distant from me.
I once read a story in a Playboy magazine. Yes, they have stories. Anyway, this man hated somebody so much, he wanted him out of his life for good. He went for a walk and thought of many ways to get rid of this man from his mind. After his long walk of scenarios on how he would die, he ended up at the man’s front door and knocked. My mind became intense to read the outcome before paging to the centerfold. The man opened the door and the other despondent man just quietly said, “Bang.” He walked away with a smile, and to him, the man was now gone from his mind, forever. This is not like my story at all, but still very well written. I think you will also get a smile from A Tale of a Blacksmith now on sale on Amazon, and Kindle select.

While Jacob walked, he felt a strange overwhelming wonderment overcome his entire body. He could somehow feel the beauty of the beast, the magnificent power, and the many years of the Dragon’s existence upon the earth. While he walked, visions flowed into his mind, and he was now filled with a deep pain, sorrow, and regret for what he had done.
He reached out with his hand to feel the beast by its chest. The flame on the wood grew brighter. Jacob felt no heartbeat, but quickly pulled his hand away and gasped with great despair. He continued to walk toward the head of the beast. When he arrived, the Dragon looked to be dead. It did not move. Not a breath could be heard. He felt so overwhelmed that he dropped his sword and shield, fell to his knees and wept. “What have I done? I am so sorry.” He said, then looked up at the Dragon and pleaded, “Please forgive me. I did not know of your beauty. I am just a stupid man with a fool of a heart.”
Back in the days before Christ, an innocent blacksmith finds himself a bride in the most peculiar way and almost loses everything that he has built up. He slays a Dragon and finds out the truth about his new bride, and vowed never to kill again. With help from his neighbor and spew from the Dragon, read how he redeems himself in this tale of lies, deceit, and betrayal.
