Ragtag Daily Prompt: Gruesome

It would be an understatement to say that GarGar, le comte des Deux Chats, felt uncomfortable in the wood stool upon which he was sitting. Directly across from him, behind a long wooden table, sat a committee of men appointed by the Prime Minister in order to debrief le comte on his whereabouts during his prolonged absence from Court. Grim-faced elders, noblemen and prelates, were now gathered to get the gory details. Never in his life had GarGar seen such a gruesome collection of hostile faces.

“Where shall I begin?” Asked GarGar

You can begin at the beginning. What happened to you after the battle, which I might add, you lost.”

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.
