50 Words Thursday # 54- Open house

Deb Whittam is the host of 50 Words Thursday

The Rules:

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
  • The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
  • Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.

I’m looking forward to what these prompts inspire, so here’s the picture:


“It was Heather who had made the whole thing work.” – Death of a Gossip – MC Beaton


It was Heather who had made the whole thing work. She had worked the garden and made sure that everything was just the way it was supposed to look. It was no easy thing making sure that each and every detail was accurate according to the pictures she had found in her grandfather’s desk.

The overseas guests would be arriving soon. The inaugural tour to this historic house had attracted quite a large number of bookings. It was apparently all the rage to visit ancient seats of nobility in Britain. After Downton Abby, everyone wanted to see them for themselves.
