Today’s prompt: He watched, helpless, as the door closed behind her.
King no longer, Eric the Bold struggled against the gag in his mouth and the rope at his wrists. General Rudolph held him prisoner in the throne room.
“Queen Freja,” the steward announced.
Freja entered the room with her head held high. She wore a red gown with flowing sleeves and a jeweled crown.
He watched, helpless, as the door closed behind her.
“Release him,” she cried.
General Rudolph snickered. “He is my prisoner. And now that you’ve walked into my trap you are, as well.”
She withdrew the sword she’d hidden in her sleeve and slashed his throat.
