As the most trusted maiden of the queen, I was a role model to all younglings.

But no one could teach better than the queen. From her significant journeys she has taught all under her rule that no one can ever be trusted. She’d made decisions that she regrets and ones that she smiles upon. But she has told me that she is slowly giving in again. She trusts me and she believes me.

So here I am, in the middle of nowhere because my mistress has banished me for her own health. She tells me I should stay away from others. I possess the kindness that no human on Earth can ever possess. I possess the trust that encourages others to lean on my shoulder.

That is why I am dangerous. To my kin, to my family, and most of all to my leader.

What an interesting story, Ila. A new take on the concept of “trust”. You’re a good writer with a unique point of view.

To be able to have others trust is a big asset. Loved your story with the twist about trust.

A very interesting story, Ila. I am sure everyone who reads it will take something different from it but all will reflect on what trust means to them.

A lovely short story, and yes you have shown that you don’t need to over dress and use too many words. Also a very valid point in that when it come to trust, there are very few who have the courage to do so. You told this, as only you can!

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
