Dame Violenta McMorbidly
#A3 in my Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait series
The Elder Lady of McMorbidly manor. Mother to Squire Drummel McMorbidly and Grandmummy… err… Grandmother to Miss Snarlette McMorbidly. She vowed to outlive them all. Maybe that’s why she appeared to have been freshly unwrapped? It was said she carried around a small decorative jar in her hand bag. Could it have contained remnants of her missing heart? Only her Egyptian handmaiden knew for sure.
The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
