100 Word Story – King

I’ve once again joined the weekly challenge over at the 100 Word Stories Podcast blog.  This week the prompt was “King” and here is my story for this week:

I’ve met a lot of self-proclaimed kings and queens in my life. They wield their power and laud their achievements to anyone who will listen.

That’s how their power works, they tell you how important they are, why you should bow down. When you don’t, they gasp and act horribly offended. How dare you? Do you not see how exceptional I am? Hush, peasant.

Here’s the best way to deal with these sorts of people: Ignore them.

They only have the power people give them. Ignore it, and they start to melt like the witch in the Wizard of Oz.

    1. I totally spaced recording, I wrote the blog post early last week and scheduled it to post Sunday, then forgot to record it. Sorry about that.
