The Feud

Responding to Denise’s six sentence story challenge using the word ANGLE
https://girlieontheedge1.wordpress.com/2020/04/26/sundays-six-sentence-story-word-prompt-105/

Smirnoff the 26th, rightful king of the Eastern Lands, gazed down from the battlements on the enemy forces swirling below.

After 200 years of war, Igor the Usurper, had finally ceded for peace and reflecting deeply on this King Smirnoff allowed a smile to momentarily grace his countenance.

Above the battlements, perched in the watch tower, Ivan The Unworthy fondled the thirty pieces of gold in his pocket as he studied the best angle to position himself for his act of treachery.

Ivan the Unworthy raised his crossbow, aimed and sent the bolt hurtling towards its target with deadly accuracy.

King Smirnoff the 26th, still smiling at the thought of peace, toppled gracefully over the battlements, his body smashing on the court yard below.

Smirnoff the 27th, rightful king of the Eastern Lands , gazed down from the battlements vowing eternal vengeance on Igor the Treacherous and his evil horde.

  1. So sad! Smirnoff didn’t know at that moment he would not live to see peace in his kingdom. Treachery, betrayal, murder – fairy tales or real life, seems there are those willing to do anything for power and money.
    But on a lighter note…a very engaging Six 🙂

  2. That Igor, such a Treacherous Usuper and in cahoots with Ivan the Unworthy. How long will it be before the Eastern Lands will be free from war?
