Looking down at the scene in front of her, aunt Mavis thought back to the days when her parents were still young.

Her mother always talked about the way Romans lived in this hotel while visiting . This room was the best room of all. Only the royal men could use this room. They had the chance to meet Bacchus himself  and enjoy his company during the night. They were also privileged to make use of the best brothel ladies.  

Aunt Mavis also remembered that her mother and uncle had to hide in the bottom room and help to do the show of Bacchus turning up from the deep and disappearing back into the hole again. They had to use smoke and flames to help  as a disguise for the person who was acting as Bacchus.

It was very difficult for the young children to do the act. Mavis’s mother was always afraid of fire and alcohol. She always cringed away when men started drinking and joking about those days

Join in the fun and visit

  1. I like that. Creating a story like that would have been very dangerous for those in the pit. Especially with the smoke and heat in the enclosed space. Thanks for taking part, Scrappy.
