A tragic warfare with women as heroes ... fascinating for a 110 FF. Every word counts, even the word 'meager' to show the small number of 'Knights in Satin' left after the war.

    Belinda,

    I am glad that you caught the word meager..many have said that a meager crowd could't roar, but the purpose was that their inner strength was heard miles and miles around. Thank you...Carol

They bravely picked up the gauntlet, got recognized for their actions and years later The Moody Blues sang about them. Good story.

    Thanks for stopping by and reading one of my shorts. I miss writing the longer ones but not much time to call my own of late. Smiles, Carol

Once again you described the scene perfectly in a very short micro fiction story. I can see the remains of the hard fought battle. Wonderful job.

    Barbara,

    I pray that you will be one of my fair maidens standing in victory at the end of your battle...You've picked up the gauntlet and faced the enemy...can't wait until you roar with success. Smiles, Carol

I honestly believe you are becoming the Queen of flash fiction. Your ability to covey so much in so few words yet leave the reader with a vivid picture in their mind of the marvelous story is simply amazing. Very, very nice work with this one. I enjoyed it immensely.

This was okay, thought it lacked something, I didn't really find it interesting. It didn't seem to have a point.

One nit:

strength as she spoke[,]--period

Is this supposed to be an entry in the new micro flash fiction contest? If so, you might want to contact Tom and ask him to put it in the contest.

Best wishes.

SECOND LOOK
Sometimes I'm a little slow. I understand better now. Good job.

    Red,

    Sorry you didn't get the point...The fair maidens had stepped up to the plate when the chips were down and fought the battle to the end. Having lost their Kind, Queen and most of their men, they wouldn't surrender to defeat...

    It's not meant for the contest...My time has been so limited of late but I chose to write several from the contest prompts.

    Thanks for the comments...Carol

Looks like you're in the running for Queen of Flash Fiction. This one is terrific with the conflict and resolution being very subtle. "The roar of the meager crowd..." sums up the whole story.

    Jean,

    I am thrilled you caught the underlying meaning of the roar of the meager crowd...some did not. Sort of like the shot heard around the world...at least in my mind. lol Smiles, Carol

Hullo Carol ...

This is very short and I am wondering why you have changed to this type of writing when you are capable of producing such gripping and well-told stories.
From a writing point of view, there is nothing to suggest changing. The first part, I could not read because your 'profile' on the right covers your words.
Love from .... Nanette Mary.

    Nanette Mary,

    I too wish that I could have the opportunity to sit and write my stories..but lately I am lucky if I get thirty minutes or so on the site. My stories take hours and hours and then I must review for hours to promote. I hope to soon finish this task of renovation and return to my love. In the mean time, I thank you for reading my shorts. Smiles, Carol
