Ragtag Daily Prompt: Resignation

“Oof!” Cried Félipe after GarGar poked him in the belly with a wooden sword.

“En garde!” Shouted GarGar.

“You’re supposed to say that before you lung,” groaned the valet.

“Rule number one of swordsmanship,” replied GarGar with a chuckle. “Never trust your opponent. Now parry!” Again le comte des Deux Chats jabbed Félipe, but this time in the ribs.

“You’re hurting me, my lord!” Whined the boy. Pulling up his shirt, he revealed two bright red marks on his torso. “See!”

With a sigh of resignation, GarGar said, “Alright, baby. Give me your sword.” Seeing his chance, Félipe chopped at GarGar’s extended hand.

“Ouch!” Exclaimed GarGar, and then, “You’re learning, Félipe. Good show!”

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
