Three Word Thursday #12

Welcome to Three Word Thursday #12. This week, joining the quondam word-list, we have paladin, intransigent, & invidious. We also have a whole list of perspicacious writers.  If you enjoy reading my story, leave a comment then click on the names of the other players and go see how they used the words. You’ll be entertained (and possibly educated) all at once.

Copper Dreams

The  intransigent corpses stood around him in a circle.  Slowly, in unison, each one’s right arms raised.  They pointed at Copper, staring.  Though their lips didn’t move, Copper heard their invidious voices.  Why was he sleeping when they’d not yet been avenged?  He was their paladin.  Why did he rest?  Their killer still lived and even now was likely planning his next murder, yet the paladin slept.  Had they chosen the wrong champion?  Why did this one not fight for them?

One-by-one they stepped forward.  Each of them looked Copper in the eye and asked their question, “When will I be avenged?”

No zombies were harmed in the writing of this post.

Got it?  Good!  In that case:  Your story is due on:  May 7th, 2009

(Oh!  And if anybody else has tripped across the perfect word and wants to send me one, or two, or three, I’ll throw them in the word basket and post them when I pick them!)


    1. I took mine down and rewrote the story, Quilly. I can’t stand poor blog posts, so I took the time I needed to write it properly. Please come over and read the new version and tell me what you think, okay?

      1. Time!!! Oh yes, that’s what I need too.Why are there always so few hours in a day? And why do they go by so fast?
        I have done nothing but write on this story today. That’s good and bad. The good part is I learn. The bad part is my house looks a mess. Oh well.

  2. “Intransigent corpses” – that’s scary, glad I’m not an undertaker! Just stopped by to say you must be thrilled at your new photo gear that will be coming soon. I’m looking forward to the photos.
