123 words …

For Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Imperious and the limit 123 words.




It’s another Saturday night at The Red Lion. The usual crowd are in the far corner.

Unsteady Eddy’s tottering from the bar with their drinks, everyone diving for cover as he slops beer all over the place.

That’s Tearful Tina.  It takes nothing to set her off.  She sees a kitten, she cries. Someone says something nice, she cries.  When she laughs, she cries.

Imperious Pete’s in charge.  His domineering manner regularly triggers Tina’s torrents and makes Eddy clumsier than he normally is.

With Jolly Jill, Lanky Larry, Snotty Dotty and Windy William, you have the most eclectic crowd you could ever wish to …. avoid!

At last, here comes my friend Rosey.  She’s like all of them rolled into one.

Only kidding Rosey!

    Sounds like somebody needs a change of scenery; the crowd at the Red Lion’s getting old. Except Rosey, of course. 😉
