Ragtag Daily Prompt: Hang

“You will surely hang for this!” Shouted Lady Marguerite at the dance master, Monsieur Pierre. On the floor sat Princess Pirouette, red-faced and screaming at the top of her lungs. Her classmates huddled in a corner, frozen with fear. Never had they heard such calamitous outpouring of pain sprinkled with rage.

“It’s not my fault the child has two left,” huffed M. Pierre.

“How do you know she won’t tell her father that you tripped her? Why, he could walk through that very door now!” Lady Marguerite pointed at the entrance to the nursery.

As if the lady had invoked a spell, Prince Devant appeared in the doorway. “What’s all the fuss?” He queried.

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.
