FFfAW Challenge-Week of June 13, 2017

This week’s photo prompt is provided by The Majesticgoldenrose.


She was awestruck by her surroundings and couldn’t believe her luck.
How would she fit in? Would she be accepted by The Family?
What would be expected of her exactly?
Naturally she had been grilled beforehand, scrutinized to practically an inch of her life as had her family (by several generations no less!) but at least she had been warned, and knew she had nothing to hide, there were no unpleasant skeletons in her ancestry.
She could understand fears of security breaches, especially as to her position.
She smiled. It was showtime!
Donning her apron and laying out the vital tools of her trade, she began her first day as Head Cook to the Duke and Duchess.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. Superb story. Looks like a prelude to what could be a very interesting story or, even a novel.

  2. Lovely story! I could feel her apprehension of starting a new job especially under a Duke and Duchess!

    I loved the twist you put into this story. And the words ‘show time’

  5. Michael says:

    Good one Di, I like how you left me wondering to the end as to what and who she was.

  6. This is a refreshing take! I enjoyed it very much. Sweet.

    her apprehensions are felt by the reader with respect to the first day of her job as a chef. but why is her background scrutinized in detail?
