FB3X Drabblerotic A to Z 2015 - B is for Burgundy - (fiction)

This post contains adult themes.
Fantasy Boys XXX is joining in the The Blogging From A to Z April Challenge with Drabblerotic 2015

where will be posting a drabble* every weekday and Saturday in April brought to you by the letters A-Z, although this isn't Sesame Street, so expect a little adult spice in our alphabet soup. ;) Our theme this year is colour.

PLUS - if you'd like to add your own drabble, then please do, just put it in the comments, or post on your own blog and link in to the list at the bottom of the post :).

*'So, what is a drabble anyway?' we hear some of you ask. And the answer is, a drabble is a piece of prose of (exactly) 100 words. 

So, without further ado, onto today's drabble...



B is for Burgundy 

Author's Note

For some reason the idea of a cloak jumped into my head when I saw this prompt, so that is what I ran with.


by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Ella had seen a burgundy cloak disappear ahead. The prince's safety was her responsibility and no one in the palace wore that colour.

Creeping along, sword drawn, she searched.

"Hello," she froze at the prince's voice.

"It's been too long, Thall," was the response.

Ice ran down her spine as she recognised the tenor of the outcast knight, Nyr. Moving forward she tensed for attack.

"I have missed you," were the words that stopped her.

She glimpsed two men leaning towards each other and she understood Nyr's swift fall from grace. The kiss was treason, but she sheathed her sword.

  1. Okay the Prince ascends the throne, marries and has a heir and a spare. After that it's all good and a time honored tradition for the King to have a lover. At least there'd be no bastards to cause problems for the succession.
    Otherwise this is sad and the King loses my vote as father of the year.

    1. The King won't be there forever and the Prince is clearly a rebel :)

  2. Interesting story--full of tension.

  3. Lots of potential in this short little snippet. <3 Great job.

    1. Thank you :D Never enough time for everything, so it's just about getting in the main elements.

  4. Nice.
    Lots in there for such a short piece.
