WonHundred Word Wednesdays

Another two-fer. Catching up still from the busy summer. I have them all written and will be giving you doubles for the next little while.

First, this weeks: October 15th: They say everyone who looks into their family history will find a secret sooner or later
They say everyone who looks into their family history will find a secret sooner or later. Most people find out they are related to some famous person, maybe even a king or what not. Not me.
The only good thing that comes from discovering something of this magnitude was that perhaps I could use the innate powers born to people of my lineage.
Centuries ago I would have been burned at the stake.
Now, all I had to do was indicate I was interested in reading from the book of the dead and I had all kinds of possibilities open.

And now what I should have posted on August 27th: She decided to go to her father's grave, to ask his advice

He’d been gone eight months and three days, yet she knew she could still go to him. Her black clothes stood out in the bright spring morning, but she didn’t feel ready to give them up. It protected her from unwanted conversation. As long as she wore them, she didn’t have to speak to another living soul.
Father would be disappointed in her for hanging on this long.
But the alternative would be to return to the real world.
To answer the question he had asked her eight months and four days ago.
Daddy would have given Shawn his blessing.

So go see who's been able to write one for this week.
