Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Prompt #67 “A Fly on the Wall”

Dress Maids Wallpaper on Google

This week’s prompt is “A Fly on the Wall” or should I say “A Maid in the Boudoir”. This week I want you to imagine that you are a servant to a powerful and scandalous family. You can follow the comings and goings of a single member or track each individual member right down to the family dog it’s up to you. Describe the families comings and goings, their indiscretions, their temperaments and moods, their grievances, their ambitions, their roles both outside and within the family, their rivalries and love interests if any exist, and of course your relationship with them. Do they keep secrets from other members of the household if so what are they? What are your responsibilities? Any of them illegal? You can go for something outlandish and fantastical and if you like you can even speculate on a family of genuine historical significance.

Have fun!
