How did they find me?


PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

As I strolled along the ancient paths through the city, I could see the imprints in the stones of those who walked before me. The vines climbed the walls and the shutters banged hard against the walls from the wind. This town was founded in 1268 under the rule of Alfons von Kastilien of the House of Burgundy who would come to see his mistress in the dead of night and lay with her.

The court will convene tomorrow to finalize my lineage so I can take the throne on my 21st birthday. I still wonder how they tracked me down.

This is my entry for Friday Fictioneers for June 28, 2017 hosted by our lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. It is a wonderful challenge. Please follow the link below to give it a try!! 🙂

  1. I’m sorry. Now, your every bowel movement will be tracking in the tabloids like it is for the British Royal Family. Paparazzi scheming how to get a copy of your grocery list. You poor, poor, girl.

  2. I wonder too how they tracked her down. I hope it isn’t like all those e-mails we get saying they have discovered either hubby or I is the only living relative of Sir Somebody and are entitled to his 6 billion — but we first have to forward 2 or 3 grand to cover transfer fees & paperwork.😅

      • Oh yes. Someone I know was arrested due to his DNA. He burgled a house and while he was there, he had a beer and a microwave meal and left the bottle and packaging on the table. I’ve known him since he was five or six, and this is the most idiotic thing I have known him to do. I hope that a stint inside will help fix him.

    • Thank you so much Rochelle! It was fun to write. The photo reminded me of the alleys we saw while in Germany last summer. I am still amazed at how old things were that we saw. So much was 800 to 100 years old! We know nothing about real history in the US unless you go back to the 1600s when it was first settled. 🙂


  3. Love it. Another in a series of “How DNA can improve your life” brought to you by the Ancestry Gurus at AYRRD ( Are you really a Royal in disguise). An excellent write, and sorry, couldn’t resist writing that little line.

  4. Courtney! You just saved me from having a heart attack! I subscribed to my own blog, but the 3 new posts on my brand new blog have not shown up in my e-mail inbox, so until you left your “likes” on them I was in a panic that NONE of the followers got the posts. I ALWAYS got the Daily Graff posts in my inbox as soon as they were published. I have sent an e-mail to the WP “Happiness Engineers” asking why I’m not getting the posts (they are not ending up in my junk mail folder). THANK YOU for keeping from tearing out what little hair I have left. Although I always liked to see how my posts LOOKED in the e-mailed versions, it’s not the end of the world since I know my subscribers are getting the posts.

  5. Love this, and your imagination! I hope that I can come to your ceremony … maybe bring Pippa Middleton as my plus one? (Just a suggestion … strolled sounds like a leisurely walk through an open park. This place seems such a throwback in time, such a different world. It’s like she’s exploring it. Maybe there’s a better word for her perspective?)
