Ragtag Daily Prompt: Liars

Weeping copiously and clutching her friend Abigail’s hand, Princess Pirouette sat on her bed prostrate with grief. “How could he do this to me?” She asked of Abigail Hoffenhoff. “After all we’ve been through, after all we are supposed-” She couldn’t go on speaking for the sobs that wracked her body.

“Do try to calm yourself, my dear!” Tata Sous-sus stood in a corner, nervously twisting a handkerchief and silently curing herself for being the bearer of such upsetting news.

“Maybe it’s not true,” consoled Abigail. “After all the court is a nest of liars.” She shot Tata a withering glance.

“-and with Lady Greenmeadow, of all people! How could he!” Pirouette pulled her engagement ring from her finger and threw it at Tata.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
