100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #174
Prompt for this week is: …all seven were just arguing amongst themselves…
In the kingdom beneath the water, was the palace of the Sea King. The coral and pearl glinted and gleamed with the little light that penetrated deeply enough.
The king sat at the long table watching over his seven sons, and one and only daughter. All seven were just arguing amongst themselves, trying to prove which one was best.
“I’m the best!” the oldest shouted. “I am better because you all have yet to learn what I already know.”
The weary king turned to his daughter and said, “I will give you the kingdom because you are the quietest.”
Inspired by the Scandinavian story Agneta and the Sea king.
