All the way back in 2015 there was a popular Flash Fiction website Flash! Friday would post twice weekly flash fiction writing challenges. The Flash! Friday contest challenge on which they named the website after was a full on competition.

The other challenges was Warmup Wednesday which was just for fun where you had to write a scene or an entire story of 100 words (no more, no less) inspired by the photo on the right. 

Below the break you’ll find my entry for Wednesday 2nd September called The Squire and His Knight. It is one of my favourite stories so I hope you enjoy it.

A Squire and His Knight

A white horse dashed to the river bank. The Squire reached down and helped his master to his feet. The cold water now lapped at both their waists. His Squire didn’t worry about his own soaked cloth clothes but how to stop his master’s armour rusting.
“What could have gone wrong?” The Knight opened the hand drawn map. “We followed it exactly. Turn left at the forked tree, right at the stone circle and into the red mountains. This river should not be here.”
The Squire sighed. How did he tell his master he had the map upside down?
