Midevial Brawl on Any Given Sunday

Alehouse Rock

by duaneculbertson

Teeth flew. Bloodied Burlyman seeks vengeance from Quickhands. Latter knows tight quarters favor Burlyman; fight must end soon. Alehouse spectators shout. Quickhands hears them, but, if they want to see color of his blood, they will be disappointed. Side-step. Counter punch. Massive body blow. Ribs crack. Breath driven from Burlyman's lungs. Behemoth turns, falls awkwardly upon oaken table. Patrons scatter. Mugs shatter. Crude structure collapses. Giant rolls upon back, insensate among filthy threshes.

Cheers celebrate a bully vanquished. Men stamp their feet in appreciation. Dust sifts from rafters. Quickhands smiles, turns to truculent barkeep brandishing club, tosses gold-coin, and leaves.
