Goosing the Queen

by F.S. Hallgrimson

Mark knew he was a simple man. It meant that every conceivable emotion could display at any time without any internal check to prevent him from making himself the fool. It was such a moment. He leaned in and touched her. A flurry of activity surrounded the scene, motions and gestures made on account of him. Mark didn’t understand what his simple act had done.


F.S. Hallgrimson may or may not be "Mark," and may or may not have goosed the Queen.
