Every week #VisDare posts a picture challenge. This week the theme is “Fearless” and the photo prompt is:
Here is my story:
by Dr. Mike Reddy (@doctormikereddy)
“The Will is clear in its stipulation. ‘All potential benefactors must attend a dinner in honour of Lady Blaenafon to inherit.’ Those finishing their meal, leaving plates clean with no remains will inherit an equal share in a substantial portion of her estate. Those that do not, are covered by a special codicil that, for now must remain confidential. Even I am not party to those elements, as my late employer was responsible for the witnessing.”
“So, all we have to do is chow down to cash in?” Lady Blaenafon’s least favourite second cousin enquired. The family solicitor, himself nearing retirement nodded his ascension.
“The meal in question is through this door. The six of you must remain until the dinner is completely finished…”
“…or forfeit the loot!” Lady Blaenafon’s third favourite son finished. “Hardly a challenge. The old biddy was a strict vegetarian at the end, silly old sausage.”

This is going to be one interesting dinner party. They just need to be careful when taking a drink. Those glasses are awfully close to the sheep’s nether regions 🙂
Aha, hope the heirs can stomach the feast. 🙂 Clever use of the prompt.
Hehe, this is a great use of the prompt.
