VisDare 88: Ordinary….. The Elephant and Castle

image

Not as good as I had hoped, this time, but I managed 150 words…

The Elephant and castle.

I felt a nudge and ignored it. I was enjoying a short break from working, answering the nudge would commit me to half an hours play time.
There was too much work to do…
My father didn’t come home from the war, but Grandad did. One night, at the dinner table, he casually told us of his incredible idea.
It was difficult to believe that our hopes and dreams had materialised, after years of searching, saving and heartache.
He moved us all to a derelict victorian castle, in acres of grounds, and soon a procession of the fabulous and weird were knocking at the door asking for jobs.
That’s when I met Chunee, the young calf who followed me everywhere. He nudged me again with his trunk. This time I looked up, and smiled as his trainer, my fiancé, beckoned me.
Break over, I went back over to the circus.

  1. I love this. Ever since reading the Night Circus I want to run away and join one, I’d even brave the clowns.

    • I HAVE THE NIGHT CIRCUS BUT HAVEN’T READ IT YET. I DID , HOWEVER, WANT TO JOIN THE CIRCUS AS A TRAPEZE ARTIST WHEN YOUNGER. INFLUENCED BY ENID BLYTONS MR GALIANOS CIRCUS … AND I WAS GOOD AT GYMNASTICS THEN TOO 🙂
      Sorry it looks as though I’m shouting but not quite sure what happened here !!
