National holidays are a time that people use in order to enjoy a simple day off from work. Some holidays tend to get more wild than others. Starting with New Years, and ending with Christmas, people will use whatever holiday they can get. But unfortunately, not every has that same luxury. I, for one, am one of those people who must suffer while others can relax.

100 Word Story – Gluttonous Royalty (Finale)

Gluttony, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Some acknowledge it as the deadly sin of them all. Other think of it as one of the easiest to overcome and endure. It all depends on just how far the sin as taken over the person’s entire being, the body, soul, and mind. As for The King, his gluttonous ways drove him to become who he his now.

Day after day, every waking hour, he was at the dining table, gorging himself with food. He paid no mind to the welfare and needs of the townsfolk outside. The Queen took over to the best of her ability while he ate, but she could only do so much. His personal servants cowered in fear, forced to bring more food to him or fear the threat of public execution.

Matilda saw The King’s rapid growth, and knew this wasn’t going to end well.

100 Word Story – Guard Duty (Part Three)

All work and no play makes Hiro a dull boy. His last couple shifts with the gang have been boring and lame, nothing exciting happening or anything worth remembering. After being assigned to lookout and guard duty for the one of the main hubs for the gang, Hiro thought he finally had a chance at seeing some action go down.

And yet, even at a place of major importance, nothing went down. All night he stood watch by the front door, watching people walk up and down the streets, couples hand in hand, and crowds of people shouting for fun.

And here he was, leaning on a wall, waiting for somebody or something good to happen.
