[TEXT] In Love with a Fellow Hostage

Write a story about two characters falling in love while being held hostage.

First, who is holding the characters hostage? Are their other hostages? And what is it about those characters that they are being held hostage?

Next, what are the strange ways the courtship has progressed? When they couple was sitting next to each other with burlap sacks over their heads, were they holding hands? Would they write small, cryptic messages to each other between a crack in a shared wall?

Finally, what happens to the hostages? Do they escape together? Does one family pay off a ransom freeing only one of the hostages? (If so, does that character refuse to go?) Do the captors harm or kill one of the hostages?
