“Sir, father says you want to leave us.”
“Yes John.”
“Why? Don’t you like it here?”
“I do like it, son. No offence, but our work seems less and less …noble.
We used to wage war, carry great men, ferry important luggage, move the ailing.
Now we only work to amuse, fight mock enemies, run for the entertainment of idle men and gamblers”
“You mean you think horses no longer do important work?”
The man stroked the horse’s mane.
“No, son. I mean Speed and I need to find an antidote for the waters of immortality we drank centuries ago.”
100 words

Enjoy the stories by other participants here:

I read all your comments and I appreciate them, even if I take long to respond and even if I do not respond to each comment individually.

I struggled with the prompt this week, especially knowing that there would be several very good stories posted, as happens every week. I wanted to write something about a unicorn. I hope someone did 🙂

I was happy to see Kenya in our Great Leader’s list 🙂

I noticed that a word was missing from my post last week. No one pointed it out. Maybe we all did not notice.

About Friday Fictioneers

Every week you get a picture.
