Romance Writers Weekly


Hello and welcome to our hop. Thanks so much for joining us and we hope you are well. This week’s challenge comes from the fabulous Jenna Da Sie:

FLASH FICTION. Write a story that contains ONLY dialogue.

“Forgive me, my lady, but I must beg a favor.”

            “My lord? We have not been introduced. What favor dare you ask?”

            “My name is Rowland and I but plead for a few moments of your gracious company before I must go off on my quest.”

            “Your quest, my lord?”

            “I must slay a dragon.”

             “My lord, there are no such things as dragons.”

            “Really, my lady. Please do not tell the dragon that, for I fear you will offend him. And his wrath might be terrible.”

            “And do you presume to save me from the dreaded beast?”

            “Of course, my lady. It is the sole mission of a knight to protect a damsel in distress.”

            “And what if you are the cause of my distress instead of some mythical creature?”

            “But my lady, that is not possible. Because if that were true, I must fall on my sword.”

            “I see. Well, then, I shall go on my way and pray your quest is a success.”

            “Then may I bring you a souvenir?”

            “And what would that be, might I ask?”

            “Why his fire, to light your way.”

            “You suggest I am in the dark?”

            “No, but I am. For I know not your name nor that which you call home.”

            “Then I suggest the dragon will tell you.”

            “And if there are no such things as dragons?”

            “Then we will both be sad.”

            “If you tell me where I can find you, we can commiserate together.”

            “Yon castle is my home, but I fear it is guarded by a very fierce creature. And I hope you do not slay him for I have grown quite fond of him.”

            “And me? Is there a chance?”

            “There is magic in the world, my lord, and one never knows when it will come to your aid.”

Now let’s pop over to the wonderful Jenna Da Sie and read her story…
