“Millicent, my dear, I do believe we are hopelessly lost – Father will have an apoplexy if we are late for the Farquhar-Johnson’s soiree!”

“Phooey, Regina – he will not notice our absence, not one bit of it! I hear Lady de Havilland will be putting in an appearance… you know he is like a dog on heat when she is in town!”

“Oh, Millicent, what are you saying?”

“You know exactly what I am saying dear sister – you don’t need a map to work out where Father will be staying the night…”


Here is my latest entry into Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction. Such an innocent and elegant scene – hiding such secrets – well, in my head anyway! Please do pop over to read other pieces – sure to be varied, sure to be entertaining!

    1. Thank you! I think there’s a great deal of misconception about Victorian behaviour… people were not different, they didn’t behave any better or worse – they just pretended to do so! πŸ™‚

      I love Victorian names too… πŸ˜‰

  1. Interesting response to the prompt — enjoyable as your narrative voice was really well done. This piece feels Victorian — and works so well πŸ™‚
