for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Armour.
I only got part of the voice mail because I’d forgotten to charge my phone and it cut out halfway through, then later when I recharged it I accidentally deleted the message and … well, you get the point.
I was invited to one of those battle recreations where grown men put on pretend suits of armour and play soldiers. I got as far as finding out when it was happening, where it was happening, what time it was happening, and then…nothing.
I wasn’t however expecting to be given a Roman outfit and a plastic spear as soon as I arrived; I assumed I was to be an audience member, not a participant!
Anyway, I joined the hoard of other soldiers and shook in my boots as we faced the enemy, then when the command to charge echoed across the field I found myself being unwillingly carried along, only to be poked in the eye by one of the clumsy foe’s weapons.
You know what, I think this eye patch suits me, I think I’ll get a pirate’s costume to go with it, arrrr!
