Place of Consequence

When he saw the name of the village, Sean Brown blanched.  It was destiny.

Great-grandfather Brown had fought and died in a trench just a few miles outside of town.  Grandfather Brown had been hidden in an attic in this town after the Germans shot down his airplane.  Celebrating family tradition, his father had proposed to his mother here while doing a grand tour.  This was a town of consequence for the Browns.

After years on the run, of all of the places in the world to finally be caught and arrested, didn’t it figure this was the place?

      In ways he is just adding his name to that history, since it wasn’t all good to begin with, i.e., it started with his great-grandfather’s death. Hopefully there’s another generation of Browns to make a more positive impact in that town. Thanks!

      Hi Rochelle. Did his obsession with the town’s name as a place of destiny lead him to trouble or was there some larger hand of fate working? That is, was his thinking about the “magic” of the place what did it or the actual magic? ;) Thanks!
