This week’s prompt is : “They say everyone who looks into their family history will find a secret sooner or later.” We take that prompt and write a 100 word flash fiction story. It is fun to see all the different directions that one sentence can take a group of writers. Come play!
I’m a professional genealogist. People hire me to help them hunt down their missing roots. From proving their ancestors were in the civil war, to proving that their ancestors had nothing to do with the same. There’re different reasons and different results for everyone.
They say everyone who looks into their family history will find a secret sooner or later. For example: wandering through an abandoned cemetery doing gravestone rubbings for a client, I tripped over a body. Unlike the rest of the descent cemetery residents, this one was unburied and freshly killed. Not the secret I was hoping for.
