No, it doesn’t have to be a queen, but hear me out for this prompt…
You’re on vacation in some faraway nation. You’re sipping your morning coffee or tea calmly when someone sits across from you and strikes up a conversation. In short order, you find out that this person is a lot more important than you ever would have thought!
Perhaps this snowballs and you end up fighting to save their life from some assassination attempt. Maybe you fall in love. Maybe you strike a deal and get rich. Or, maybe it’s an alien and they abduct you.
For me, this prompt just reminds me of the day my family hosted a prince in our house. We were (and are) just about as close as you can get to being a nobody, but there we were. We knew a guy who knew a guy who needed a favor. So, we had dinner with a prince. (Sidenote: pizza from Little Caesars was not a good call.)
Anyhows, I REALLY want to see what you guys think about this prompt! Use it however you please! 🙂 And, as always, I’d love to see it up on InklingsFiction.com too!
