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. You’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. 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. Guarding strawberries was embarrassing!
Got it? Good! In that case: Your story is due on: September 10th, 2009
