Storytime Saturday, featuring an excerpt from an as yet nameless tale.
Take a gander, if you’d like, and let me know what you think. Happy weekend; stay creative.
He rode slowly and haughtily toward the beast; his approach was strewn with pride at felling such a mighty animal. The others rode the clearing, picking off the last of the exhausted herd, and he reached the animal as it writhed its last frenetic movements. The beast lay dying, an arrow through its chest, drawing its last breaths. He watched the king dismount and walk toward him with knife drawn. His last view consisted of the king, knife in hand, approaching him and drawing the glistening blade across his neck, thus finishing the job. The hunt was over, and the men cheered with pride at their success.
The camp was ripe with the talk of the day; bold stories intermixed with tall fables resounded over the group, and each man enjoyed his share of the well cooked venison. The fires simmered and the king made his rounds with the men, hearing each man’s tale with a warm smile and a ready ear.
Keep an eye out for more of this story…it’s an old, unfinished one, but I’ve taken an interest in it again.
Keep it going. My interest is piqued.
Thanks always for your support!
