    The town of Alric knew neither peace nor war. There existed neither enemies nor allies behind those Earthen walls; time simply passed. Each morning was introduced by the commotion of awakening livestock, each night the setting of the sun. Nothing existed far outside the households of Alric commoners, and that was how they preferred it. The only thing more alien to them than the oceans was strife. Just as these lowly folks knew little of the world, the...

The Difference Between You and I

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2020

This piece is a bit vague in some areas (what do you mean when you say "he had her right where he wanted her?" why does he want this?) Also, some of the dialogue is a bit cliche. It's interesting...
