100-Word Challenge, Day 266


Gloriana claps her hands and the entire village goes quiet. “Hush, all of you,” she says, her voice is stern and matronly. “Times have been hard, but that is no reason for us to be rude. This man is our guest, now go about your business.” She stands in the doorway, her hands on her hips. “Shew!” she yells and the elves scatter. Satisfied, she turns to Julius and says, “Come on, the both of you, and be quick about it.” Julius nods his head toward the door and I enter obediently. My rescuer is close behind me and shuts the door with a rather ominous sounding bang.
