I did not realise how much my life would change after I was handed over The Holy Grail for safekeeping. Up to that moment in time I had no awareness the truth about my family, our role in the history of the world, and the danger we faced on a daily basis. After being told everything, so much made sense. All the near-miss accidents either to myself or my sister, home schooling which I rebelled against, chauffeur, bodyguards that I believed were friends of the family, being forced to join the military.

That day I went to mass and was ushered into a small passageway at the side of the church which led to a courtyard I never knew existed. Through a massive stone arch into a chapel. Met by long lost family, recognising a man from the media and realising in shock it was the Pope himself.

As keeper of the Holy Grail I have a lifetime duty to guard the secret. It is not what anyone thinks it is. Not even close.

Six minute story is brilliant as a daily mental excercise to write on a variety of topics. It involves a lot of trial and error before I finish in the given time.

I am often surprised which of my stories receive the most views, often those I planned to delete.
