Welcome to Three Word Thursday #26. This week, joining the quondam word-list, we have oporopolist; phalerae; & stibogram. 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. Youâ€™ll be entertained (and possibly educated) all at once.
The 12th Knight of Strawberry Fife
The stibogram lead to the oporopolist‘s stall. A diminutive guard stood nearby. He wore a faded green cloak over his tunic and whenever he moved a distinctive phalerae could be seen. The guards name was Evaard and he was the 12th, and lowliest knight of Strawberry Fife.
Last week Evaard was still a page. This was his first gig as a knight of the realm. Â Of course, every knight had to start somewhere, but Evaard would have preferred starting by battling a newly-hatched dragon or even a teenage ogre.Â Guarding strawberries was embarrassing!
Got it? Good! In that case: Your story is due on:Â September 10th, 2009
