Friday Fictioneers – The Sight

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

The stones were old, very old. Things had happened here. I laid my hand flat on a dressed block, and my palm tingled. The past spoke through me. There was smoke, and screams, and the clash of metal. A warrior king strode the battlements, looking out to sea, desperate to glimpse allied sails.

I possessed a gift.

Like anyone blessed with The Sight, I endured mockery.

My wife brandished the site guide. “Don, this was a granary, not a castle.”

  1. I believe and trust Don. There is so much of history buried in the past that guide books/leaflets tend to leave out the the parts that might offend their sensitive tourists.
    Even local history here hails Wallace as a great Scottish hero, yet during his attack on the English Sheriff in Lanark many (200) of the local people were killed by his men as they ransacked the town. (documented history from the time).

  2. They sound like a good pair. Wife keeps Don from floating too far from reality, and Don adds a bit of zing to his wife’s oh so logical approach to things. Well balanced, I’d say. Great story. Most entertaining.
