Honest Apprentice (7-30-2016 RWC)

( #wire #tragic #chisel #careless #abrasive #honesty #random #word #challenge ) 

Honest Apprentice 

As the master sculptor approached, the apprentice felt the tension in the room like a taut wire. The master yelled at the apprentice, "How could you have been so careless?"

 "You asked me to try something bold and new, so that is what I did," answered the apprentice.

"I meant for you to experiment on your own sculpture, not on mine!" said the master. "You took one of the greatest heroes of scripture and put a crown of daisies on his head."

"I thought it was an improvement."

"How is David as a young man going to meet Goliath improved by flowers in his hair?"

"A lot seeing as how he is wearing nothing else."

"David would not have gone to meet Goliath with daisies in his hair!"

"Maybe not, but you depicting him as nude, is not much better," retorted the apprentice.

"Of course, it is. I'm showing him in all his glory. The Scriptures even say how David did not wear the armor offered him because it did not fit."

"Master, are you trying to imply that David took off the ill-fitting armor and then all his clothes too? I do not see him stripping off his clothes to slay Goliath. Your sculpture seems to depict him being presented to Goliath as a beautiful young virgin sacrifice. So a crown of daises is appropriate. Or have you confused him with the naked Bathsheba David spied on his roof?"

"I have not confused anything! It is perfectly reasonable for a young warrior to engage in mortal combat undressed, as an intimidation tactic."

"I cede the point master."

"Never mind. This discussion is moot because you are no longer my apprentice. Take your things and never return!"

As the former apprentice left many thoughts cluttered his mind. He thought, "It is best if my next master appreciates my honesty and has a less abrasive personality. And lastly how tragic it must have been for Goliath to be killed by someone smaller than him let alone someone naked."

Pencil Clock (7-23-2016 RWC)

( #lake #horse #clock #distrustful #pencil #rose #random #word #challenge #horror ) 


Pencil Clock 

"Down by the lake. Down by the lake. Down by the lake. We will go. If the horses wake and we ride. We will see the morning bride. Singing of the day and the beauty of the sky," Jason sang as he drove on a narrow dirt road. He was hoping this trip would re-kindle the love Jillian had for him. Lately, she had become very distrustful of Jason. Jason had done nothing to deserve the distrust of Jillian, but every day she was becoming more and more difficult to live with.

Jillian was trying to sleep in the passenger seat. She was getting tired of Jason singing about their trip to the lake. She knew that Jason wanted to do this trip to revive their marriage. She had no intent of letting that happen. She wanted to end the marriage, but she wanted everyone to think that the marriage was ending because of Jason.

As they pulled up to the cabin Jillian was filled with relief that she could finally leave the car and Jason's singing. She got out of the car and left all the luggage for Jason to carry in. She rushed into the cabin, so she could have some time alone. As the door swung open she saw a clock with pencil hands on the wall. Jillian gasped in horror as images of her lover's office washed over her.

Cynical Morning (7-16-2016 RWC)

( #wake #allow #orb #mighty #empty #cynical #random #word #challenge #morning )

Cynical Morning 

The orb of daily light inched its way into the mighty sky. Its warming beams were sent to wake them all from their gentle sleep. Not all were welcoming to this warming blanket. One on the far side of the little town of Bermsteed found this morning to be empty.

He did not want to allow the light of day to end his tormented sleep. His tears of grief and self pity had soaked his pillow the night before. He hated the idea that he had to meet the day and the sorrows of the previous day.

 His thoughts went to freak accident that caused his beloved wife to die.

"It was the light of day. It was the light of day that causes me misery," he moaned.

She stood next to him in the market. He was board from all the shopping she was doing. He had let his mind to wonder as she browsed. A cracking sound came from above and they looked above and saw a piece of wood coming at them. He was able to get out of its way just in time, but his wife was not so lucky.

"I hate you light!" He yelled as he began to soak his pillow again.

Chief Bananas (7-9-2016 RWC)

( #glumly #compact #root #spirit #chief #bananas #random #word #challenge )

Chief Bananas 

"Don't let some heart beat leave you bitter, Chief Bananas. You should get up and dance with Root." said Sitting Spirit.

Chief Bananas decided that he would not listen to Sitting Spirit. He preferred to sit there glumly as he held a compact bundle of banana leaves. He had gotten the bundle from Free Leaves. Free Leaves was the love of his life, but she decided to run off with Chief Apples. Others claimed that Free Leaves liked how Chief Apples was more firm than Chief Bananas.

Chief Bananas did not know how he was going to get over his heart break. Sitting Spirit was trying hard to cheer him up by setting him up with other partners like Root, Stem, and Flower. They were all pretty enough, but Chief Bananas would always focus on how they were not like Free Leaves. For example Root seemed to be way below him compared to Free Leaves. He did not like how far down he had to look to see her.
