Mummers Tales – Into The Night (100 Word Story #43)

The Serpent slid forth, into the night; out of sight on this moonless dark night.

Unto a tavern in town did it snake; to listen, from boggy cistern, to what said villagers spake.


‘To peace and delight;’ came the cheer to the moonless dark night.

‘To love and good company;’ heard the Serpent cloaked in subtlety.


Hiss! I said Hiss! There is something amiss! Happiness in good times and splendid companions? O the Queen shall not miss this! Hiss!

The Serpent did slide, glide to the ear of Her Majesty; the Queen’s side.

Together they plot theft,

Exit stage left.
