The Reason (160 Words)

@SVBookman

“Storm brewing, Dear.” Magnificence spoke over his shoulder to his lovely wife, Contessa. She knew the weather was bad; she had consulted the Oracle. Not that he would believe her now. Of course, the real problem was the literary entries. The storm would bring down most of the communication routes as well as simply making it very difficult to read the entries. Several of the copies had been blurred by early water falls.

“I hear you, Dear. Would you be so kind as to move the wood nearer the fire place?”

“I will gladly do so, but it’s already quite wet from yesterday’s downpour.”

Contessa sighed loudly, shaking her blonde hair out of her eyes and covering while she wiped the tears away.

“It’s only a simple contest. It should not be this hard,” she sniffed.

“What was that, Dear?”

“Nothing. I said I wondered if the rain will be as hard.” She stood and walked slowly from the tower.
