The Ruler – Gargleblaster Micro stories #244

The evil sorcerer Polinticus growled, “Give me the Ring!”

“Can’t,” shrugged Simon. “My wife is wearing it.”

“You fool! With the Ring she will rule all others.”

“Simon Henry Pritchart,” called Simon’s wife. “Get over here!”

Simon sighed. “So? She already does.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    LOL poor evil sorcerer. Simon’s wife looks as though she’d be pretty formidable even without the ring.

      You know, I found that picture by accident. I just searched for “impressive ring” expecting only a hand with an audacious ring. I saw this pic and changed my mind. I wanted it for the story. And yeah if the story continued, the sorcerer would’ve been humbled by Simon’s wife. 😉 Thanks much, Lyn! 🙂
