One Last Battle…

“Tis just a flesh wound, Gideon. Press the attack!” said the king. “Who is with me?!” he said, rallying his men. “Let’s send these beasts back to hell!”

Gideon grabbed his King’s attention. “Sire, you’re wounded. You must seek medical attention.”

“Now is not the time. Night falls, but for me especially.” His eyes were grave as he looked at Gideon. “I know my fate. Now, dear friend, do as your king commands and let us have one last battle together.” Gideon understood and stayed his complaint.

“For you, my king.”

When the daylight returned the king was dead.

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.
