Ragtag Daily Prompt: Frenetic

Queen Pirouette wasn’t the sort of woman who would swoon at the drop of a hat; however, this latest revelation was like a blow to her stomach. Grabbing Lady Abigail by the forearm, she doubled over, while at the same time emitting a choking, gasping sound. Alarmed, Lady Abigail fell to one knee in order to get a closer look at the Queen’s face.

The man leapt up and before any of the guards could intercept him, he seized the Queen by her shoulders and pulled her up. In a display of frenetic energy that was certainly worthy of monsieur le comte GarGar, he gave her a good shaking and then planted his lips upon hers. And before anyone could say another word, she whispered, “It’s him! It’s GarGar!”

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.
