Fulbert's Revenge

You have been influential company since you came from your town in Brittany. You possess prowess in philosophy, and are next to none in theology. Your presence is a formidable stance as you are among the scholars of France. However, your acts defy decency as you have caused unwanted pregnancy with my niece Heloise in secrecy. You were intended to be her tutor, but you are an inadvertent lover. How inconsiderate, Peter Abelard! Deciding on punishment was not hard. You’ve worn out your welcome within these walls. For what you’ve done, I shall cut off your CENSORED. Peter Abelard and Heloise Robert Pettit for Nette's Soul Partners Contest

Congrats on your win, Robert! The ending, although terribly tragic for poor Abelard, gave me a chuckle with your wording or lack therof!lice and Blessings, Rhonda
