The Superior Story

Writing Rambles #14

Artwork by me! From left to right: Ronny, Tommy, Taryn, Roreth, and Mia

This ones funny. This is actually through the perspective of a character in a story idea of mine, about a group of incongruent friends who seem to have a habit of getting themselves into some pretty supernatural trouble. Her name is Taryn and even though she’s not the mc, it was fun to do this snippet through her eyes.

As always, if you want to join the fun, write your own story off of the promt before you read mine and post it in the fireside room! I’d love to read it!

Prompt: I shut my mouth as quickly as I opened it…

The Superror Story written August 25, 2019

I shut my mouth as quickly as I opened it. I wanted to argue, ‘bout as badly as a bronc wants to boot his rider from his back, but Tommy had me there. You’d have to know the imbecile to understand even a smidgin of what I felt, or you’d have to have your very own bonafide imbecile... and now that I think about it, you probably do.

He just has the most irritating ability to thoroughly miff me to my very core.

Don’t get me wrong, most times we get along great. I mean, he’s part of the gang, and the five of us... well were something special, aren’t we?

But then there’s always moments like these when I can actually feel the steam building in my head and his stupid, perfect grin wasn’t helping my blood pressure levels.

“But-“ I finally began to spit at him.

“Nope.” He shook his head, skipping up the sidewalk to walk beside me. “You can’t argue that logic. Once you sit down with them side by side, there is no way in the world they could be considered similar. The Lord of the Rings is superior in all ways. Character development, plot, theme, even on the literary level!”

I growled. This was stupid really. I’d never read either the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, but I just didn’t have it in me to let him win. I looked at Ronny behind me for assistance.

Bad Idea. The two of them were like two peas in a pod. To ask him to willing disagree with Tommy would be like asking water to burn.

Taking his eyes off his shuffling feet his eyes rounded. “Don’t look at me, Tar! I haven’t read them either.”

Of course he hadn’t. And Roreth and Mia were just as much in the dark.

I sighed. My main point was to prove that both the books were equally stupid. I never have been a fantasy gal. But it seemed pretty pointless now, talking to a die hard fan.

“And don’t even get me started on the films!” Tommy exclaimed. “Oh my gosh!”

I rolled my eyes, but walked along in silence after that.

Thanks for reading!

Your captain,

Ellie Maureen
