My Flash Fiction - Brandish [#Write4Ten]

Once again I tackle a new Write 4 Ten prompt....how about you?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Brandish [Write4Ten]

"No, no, no. Not like that, like this!" Sir Geoffrey stood behind his young charge and once again showed him the correct stance.

"I'm trying but my body doesn't want to obey." Reginald pushed his tutor to the side. "I don't want to do this anymore. I don't like swords." He glared at the castle behind them. "I don't care what my father says." He spun to face his tutor, "Father doesn't understand me."

"Now, now. Let's do one more session and the we'll be done for the day. Come, get in position. Every gentleman must know how to handle himself in a duel." Sir Geoffrey positioned Reginald and took him through the moves.

No one noticed Reginald's youngest sister brandishing her wooden sword and mimicking every move with perfect precision.

    1. Yes you should....LOL! Glad you enjoyed it. This was a short one but that's the way it goes at times. Other times I write for much more than 10 minutes. It's all about firing up the creativity genes....

  2. I love the youngest sister, one day she will protect the castle. Thanks for sharing your story. The prompt brandish stumped me for most of the day. But finally I got an idea and enjoyed writing it up. I submitted the link in the Write4Ten Thursday post.
