Just a really short story that I'm submitting to this literary magazine-y thing at my school. Really short and sweet.

Captain Jake swung his sword roughly, rewarded by a satisfying smack against his opponent’s. His rival grunted angrily and retaliated. Jake blocked it easily and dodged another forceful blow flying towards his head. He grinned as he held his sword steady against the other pirate. With a quick flick of his wrist, Jake tossed aside his foe’s blade and it landed with a soft thud on the ground. His challenger cast a worried glance towards his fallen weapon.
 
Jake approached his opponent slowly, his cutlass pointed out in front of him. His contender backed away quickly. With each step Jake took forward, he took a step backwards. Then Jake got lucky. The other pirate tripped and fell backward, his hands spread out to break his fall. Smirking slightly, he glanced at his sword and prepared to deliver the final blow.
 
“Jake! It’s time to go!” Jake heard his mother calling from the park bench.
 
“Mom! I’m busy!” He sighed.
 
“Say goodbye to your friend, it’s time to go!”
 
“Alright already!” He yelled to his mother. He returned his gaze to the other boy sprawled out on the grass. Jake held out his hand to him. “Sorry I gotta go. You’ll come to the park tomorrow, right?”
 
“Sure.” The boy shrugged and took his friend’s hand to pull himself up. Jake threw his stick away before running to his mother, who held an outstretched arm towards him. As the two were leaving the park, Jake glanced behind him and waved to the other boy.
 
He turned towards his mother. "Mom, when I grow up, I wanna be a pirate!"
