An exchange goes terribly wrong. man sinks to the depths of depravity.

Medieval period. A man and entourage at an aggressor’s place. The chap looks fair but stern.

 

He a negotiator, requests a trade, their person, who is brought along, for another person the other side grabbed.

 

The other side brings the person in question out – all looks well but before the person can breathe a sigh of relief, the negotiator sees their throat suddenly slit.

 

Author’s note – yes, just a quickie that came to me. Wrote this afternoon waited to publish in case I added more to this short tale. All it came down to 3 minutes past 11 PM was a few changed words. My last short was 33 pages Pioneer. This length that of the first in the series last year – flash fiction.

It tells a full story, and paints a remarkably complete picture as it is. Great flash writing, Dreamscriber.
