I missed a couple of weeks on Weekend Writing Warriors because of holidays, but I’m back again. This is snippet from the same story I showed you last time.
Mona, the orphan of Europe is an alternative history coming of age story about Mona, an unruly princess who travels Europe visiting her supernatural “aunts” and “uncles.” The story starts out in Paris where Mona is attacked by the followers of the forgotten gods, the Misremembered. Her aunt is holding a party, but Mona questions her about her attackers.
My aunt appeared out of thin air, took my champagne and drank it.
“Non, non, ma chérie, that’s not for little girls.”
“Aunt Paris, we need to talk.”
“That’s exactement what we are doing.”
“What can you tell me about the Misremembered?”
She drew a big breath and her face became whiter than her powdered wig.
“I don’t want to talk or think about them. It’s such a happy night. Look, we even have cancan dancers.”

The Misremembered! What a wonderfully evocative name. I’m loving this as much as that picture of macaroons that reminds me I need to go get breakfast.
Thank you and have a lovely breakfast :3
Off beat and so interesting. I’m looking forward to more.
Great snippet, and I have to admit––I laughed a little at the end! 😉
Not much help to be had from Aunt Paris, I’d say. Enjoyed the snippet, fascinating concept for the story!
Mona in Paris . . . her middle name wouldn’t happen to be Lisa, would it?
That was interesting. I’m fascinated by the Misremembered.
I like how she tries to avoid the question. With a name like Misremember, I want to know more too.
Mona “Lisa” ?
It usually turns out that the things people don’t want to talk about are the most interesting things. 🙂
