Today's seminar was a continuation of our discussion about Historical Fiction.
Here's the writing exercise we did. It's meant to be someone coming from a past historical period to the 21st Century:
She came out of nowhere. If I believed in magic, I would've said that she was some sort of witch using magical powers - but I don't believe in magic. She did however look rather familiar... It wasn't until she spoke that I knew who she was. Standing before me was none other than Queen Elizabeth I.
"Bow before your Queen!" she demanded
"Sorry lady, but I don't have to bow before anybody," was my reply
At that I took out my phone and snapped a picture. After all, I had to have proof that would make my friends believe me when I told them later.
"What is that strange object?" she asked
"What, this?" I asked holding up my phone
"This, is a mobile phone," I replied
Her Majesty looked rather baffled and tried to take it from me. I pulled my arm out of reach and she stumbled.
"Woah there! Nobody touches my phone - nobody. Do you have any idea how much this baby costs?!" I said
"I thought you said it was a mobile phone..." the Queen replied confused
"It is a mobile phone, but it's my baby," I replied gently stroking it
"You mean to tell me you have birth to that ghastly thing?!" she said with a hand on her heart
I stared blankly at her for a moment before bursting into laughter
"Lady, you're crazy."
"Do not laugh at your Queen! I shall have you executed!"
This just made me laugh all the more
