Title: The Ambassador's Tale
Series: Valiant Tales.  Read them in order here.

Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISs.
A/N:I keep telling these people that I'm busy.  I have a long WIP to finish.  But they insist on barging in and telling me their stories.

I once read that philosophy provides complicated answers to simple questions.

“Who am I?”  I was the French ambassador to the United States, senior member of the corps diplomatique.  Now I am personal chef to the master of Earth.

“Why me?”  Perhaps to humiliate me.  I lacked culinary training.  Since I wished to live, I learned quickly.  Giovanni, who cooks belowdecks, provided a book by Julia Child.  I owe my survival to a Sicilian and a Californian.

“Why am I here?”  The simple answer: President Winters invited me.  The philosophical answer: perhaps to learn the difference between humiliation and humility.
