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 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.

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