Semantics

Trifextra: Week Sixty-Four

Congratulations to all the winners!  Wish I'd had time (and energy) to visit and comment on every one.  
I'm beginning to believe that most of mine are becoming character studies for my...uh,characters.

Anyway,
The Prompt: 
 This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:

charge
century
lost
So 33 of yours plus 3 of ours means that everyone will have a 36 word response this time around.





"You lost my sword, Lillian?"

The demon bitch had been hounding her for the last century.  "It's not lost, Aslozoth."

"Then, let me amend the charge, witch," Aslozoth's eyes burned red.  "You stole my sword, Lillian?"

  5. I don't think this will end well! I like how you worked the words in - especially "charge".

  6. uh oh...Lillian is going to get her butt kicked...unless she magically makes that sword appear...to either give back to the demon OR to kill him :)

  9. I think there is a touch of humour about, lovely writing in this demonic scene of fantasy, but the humour comes from him being a bit of a fool...no warrior ever, ever loses his sword, so it shows aside that is flawed..though the sword is maybe...stolen..clearly!

  18. Your thirty-three words seem so much more than mine. :-) Great job fleshing out a tale in such a short space.

  19. This is great Renee! Such a creative take on the prompt. Here's hoping Lillian has a little something up her sleeve!

  20. Ooh, I love how Aslozoth busts the "demon bitch" (love that!) for lying to him by omission... I'm looking forward to hearing Lillian's response to that! ;-) Brilliant writing, Renee!
