“Me back is much better now Doc!”

“I can see that, Dudley. What changed?”

“Ah, the King grew tired of me spillin’ the wine. The stone men added little ramps. Now when I tug me barrels up from the cellars they don’t spill!”

“The king must care for you very much!” the doctor declared.

“I know the king’s secret,” Dudley grinned.


“I caught him with Queen Farrah!”

“The queen of Arcadia?”

“The same.”

“He’ll kill you!”


“Why not?”

“Growing up Queen Sarah was my friend. She holds the proof. If I die she will know what he did.”

  1. Dear Joe,

    Dirty little secrets can backfire, ya know. Nice one.



  2. I wouldn’t trust him. Nope, not a two timing #%B like that King.

  3. Helena Hann-Basquiat says:

    The Queen of Arcadia, huh? I’ll have to tell Penelope, the Countess of Arcadia about this….

  4. Clever story, but I was slightly confused by the last para. Is there a comma missing?

  5. You’ve managed to get intrigue, adultery, a complex character, and a twisting plot all in 100 words. I’m impressed, Joe.

So you took time to read what I wrote and I appreciate it, but comments are even better!
