Ragtag Daily Prompt: Perception

Pirouette 2Queen Pirouette watched her two youngest children playing in the courtyard. Twins, a boy and a girl, they both wielded imaginary swords made of little branches. Although they were a bit small for their age (eight years) they burst with energy. Nothing could have pleased Her Majesty more than the sight of her babies running, jumping, laughing and shouting. If one were to gauge her perception as a mother, they’d find that the twins encompassed everything near perfection in this life.
