The 50-Word Vignette Challenge

50-Word Vignette #47

Prompt: Surrender

'Put your weapon down. There is no escape.'

'In your dreams, darling. You know I have the higher moral ground.'

'Morals have nothing to do with affairs of chocolate and cream.'

Their forks clashed and tangled across the table.

'I don't care! I'll never surrender the last slice of cake.'



Anybody else like to join in and write their own? Just post it in the comments. All welcome.

the white flag was raised
it meant surrender
i was exhausted sweaty
it had been a long struggle
i wondered what would happen now
i was thirsty - parched
my body ached
my mind was blank
wanted it to be over
i didn’t care any more
who was my enemy now?
