The turrets were perfect outlook posts, and messengers would be sent on high to scan the horizons and report anything untoward.
A storm was coming, its magnitude like nothing seen before.
This was duly reported to the King, who decreed that the basements of the castle were adequate to house the entire village population.
In a matter of hours, supplies, bedding, water and food, even for livestock, were stored in readiness.
It didn’t matter what happened to their homes as long as the people were safe.
Afterwards they would all pull together to rebuild.
At least that was the theory…………………

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour 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! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    One has to hope it all worked out for them…

    There are very few stories that feature kings like this – in fiction or real life! If only it were so.
