WonHundred Word Wednesday: They say everyone who looks into their family history will find a secret sooner or later October 15, 2014

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! 

 

October 15

 

            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.

    Nice. Totally different take on the prompt than what I could have imagined. Bet the story before this and the story after this would have lots of cool stuff too.
