Testing a theory.
[Read it all before any post or msg of any kind about it. ]
Always one for toying with the human mind, the Councillor once again was testing a theory, ever saddened by the assumptions people continue to make. Looking about at the party in celebration of a third term in office, the room full of elbow rubbers and social ladder climbers, a sneer grows on the otherwise stoic face. Anticipating this later evening, sitting beside the only one that can cause a true smile, their children chattering. These thoughts quickly derail as a slave trips towards the owner of the house, who without so much as a flinch watches the wine cause stains on the fancy attire bought just for this event. Suddenly furious, the freshly re-elected official reaches out and slaps him then bellows as the whole room watches. "FOOL! CLEAN THIS UP NOW!"
He bows slightly, but not quite enough, and dares reply with a simple. "Right away."
This furthers the disgrace, earning another slap and him adding a hasty stuttering "M..My apologies... Master."
Looking out the window, trying to calm, remembering that these servants are mostly fresh off the boat, the gathering restarts. A footmen steps in, announcing the return of the hunting party to the estate.
The farmer turned politician smiles widely for the first time since they left, as a man walks in, a rather large rifle in one hand and his hat and goggles in the other. Quickly joining him, already hearing stories of chasing lions while crosses the room, the hunter pulls his spouse into a deep kiss, looking down. "Oh dear. What ever has happened to my lovely wife's dress?"
With a weighted sigh and a weary laugh, she sums it up for him. "One of the clumsy Englanders, pasty creature barely speaks Afrikaans." As the party continues, she can't help wonder how anyone could live somewhere so wet and green, rather than the endless gold toned lands of Africa.
Assumptions are strange and often dangerous things, are they not?
