Challenge Sedate

Points The Watch

Word Count 100

It was called "Proceeding", a sedate, measured pace. You could keep it up all day. After a while the legs worked themselves and one could concentrate on what your ears and eyes were telling you,

The commander made it a point of pride to do a beat with a rookie watchman. They usually needed advice on proceeding. Without it they wouldn't last the night. Dead tired or dead, floating on the Ankh before the small hours had chance to grow any bigger.

It was a sedate walk except the hour before six. At this time the wise keep well clear.

Challenge " Holly"

Points - the watch

Word count 100

Mr Boggis disliked disciplinaries.

Un-licenced thieving was alright, and the chalk outline usually went down as suicide.

This wasn't one of those.

At least captain Carrot was there.

"So you robbed a temple of a holy book. I then have the collector round here to complain that the book lists prices of evergreen winter plants .

"The member agrees" said Carrot Diplomatically.

"Licence suspended for a month" said Mr Boggis. "Next time learn to ****ing map read, spell . and don't burgle the garden shop next door "

He was the worst sort of thief - one who wasn't any good at it.

Title: Bah Humbug
Word Count: 100
Challenge: Holly
Points to: The Sunshine Sanctuary

Holly was too spiky to eat, Young Sam had discovered, and mistletoe tasted funny and also made Mummy worry about poison. Ivy was right out. Paper chains disintegrated too fast under the onslaught of dribble. Pudding was only for big boys and girls because it had brandy and coins in it. Bacon and sausages and black pudding were only for big boys and girls because they couldn’t be gummed, only chewed with grown-up teeth. Ribbons were all right but Mummy took them away in case he swallowed too much and choked.

Hogswatch wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

Points: The Watch

That woman was back. As spokesperson for the Benignant Society she had expended hours condemning the conditions of their cells. While chairman of the Freedom Association she inundated the Watch with petitions to ban Cheery's 'unproven' for-en-sics. Currently, paper was being emphatically waved at the Commander while she dropped phrases like 'accountability' and 'due process' the way the lastest theatre starlet would drop pounds.

Nobby may not know many things but he did know what would happen to someone who ate holly berries. Gleefully he crushed three red fruits into the steaming teacup and carried the drink to their guest.

[NB: From Wikipedia "Holly berries are somewhat toxic and will cause vomiting and/or diarrhea when ingested by people, partly due to the ilicin content"]

Points: The Watch

Archchancellor Ridcully calmly inspected the erect statues in the big hall. Half of his senior staff had been turned to stone of varying shades of grey.

To his left, Dr. Hix uncomfortably shifted from foot to foot. The calmness Ridcully showed was more unnerving than an outbreak of anger would have been.

"Why?“ Ridcully asked, not taking his gaze off the statue that had once been the Lecturer in Recent Runes.

"The skull ring, remember? University statute?“ Hix tried feebly, his voice pitched high by nervousness. Somehow he just knew those words wouldn’t be able to save him this time.

Title: Duty
Prompt: Shades of grey
Words: 100
Points: The Sunshine Sanctuary for Sick Dragons

When the timer expires, when the last grain of sand descends that cold glass chasm into the inevitable, the scythe must navigate its icy blue arc and unlock the doorway to oblivion. Whether good or evil, whatever a person’s deeds or worth, The Duty permitted no compromise - no cruelty or mercy or sentiment. Black and white.

The bony black-robed figure, trailed by his human servant, stalked through a dark fathomless house, past rooms where a daughter and an apprentice once resided. Sword in one hand and in the other, a timer – nearly empty – etched with the words ‘Susan Sto Helit’.

Title: Views on Sharing
Prompt: Shades of grey

Points: Sunshine Sanctuary for Sick Dragons

There were several reasons that Sybil Ramkin passed forty and didn’t marry. She said that it was because she didn’t meet men that shared her interest in dragons and when she did, they were already in pairs. The truth was because she’d been instructed to see marriage in shades of grey but she just couldn’t. She couldn’t look the other way like her female ancestors did when their husbands strayed. She looked at Sam’s anxious face and the humble ring he was offering. She’d never need to share him with another woman just the Watch. She could accept that.
