Dare?

Can you manage a dare?

A contrite fidget whose flavour

is open timidity came in

today and begged a simple

favour for which all takers

were taken, hence this request

to you. Well, can you?

I mean, it’s simple: all

you have to do is

escort this fidget to a

safe refuge, free from

the vengeful scourge of scratching,

out to secure a debt

from this underling who somehow

earned this wrathful response so

earnestly and direct. May be

it’s beyond your scope to

under take: after all, it

requires exploration in to places

that do not seek the

light nor want its patronage.

It would come, of course,

with the usual remuneration should

you undertake this and enter

the first hour wholly on

board. Thereafter, should you fail

to return, then insurance payouts

will be directed to those you

designate inheritors of your boldness

and bravado. I’m sure you’ll

like the terms. Well, what

is your decision; will you

accept this challenge and stake

once more the claim to

being both foolhardy but brave?

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
