The Monument

by Kath Middleton
Originally published by on 02/04/2018

The Prince was a broken man when his beautiful young wife died in childbirth. Her body was placed in the plain brown casket she’d requested in her dying moments.

He felt it didn’t sufficiently convey his love for her, so he commanded that a magnificent mausoleum be built. He supervised the craftsmen as they erected a golden dome over it, glittering with precious gems. This was surrounded by columns and a roof of gleaming white marble.

The Prince’s eyes feasted on this monument to love, satisfied. Then they fell on the wooden box.

“Splendid – but get rid of that thing.'
