The Bravest of All

Not knowing what to expect, he made his way into the dark of the forest. Carlton's bravery was above others and is what endeared him to Lady Beth. She loved brave men and the bravest of all was Sir Carlton.

When he returned, Sir Carlton was shaken. His face was ashen white and he trembled as he rode his beautiful horse, Manners. He reported that he had seen a spaceship land that was occupied by small green beings who took him inside their spaceship and examined him.

The other knights laughed. They thought it was ridiculous. To win the love of Lady Beth, Sir Landon went into the dark of the forest – never to return.

  1. What a fantastic story for a fantastic prompt. I love the mashup of medieval knights and little green men.

    This is Brantley from the Brantley Blog, by the way. Hope all is well with you! I wanted to reconnect since you were one of my followers. I’m working on a new blog now called The Story in the Frame. It’s an artistic collaboration between myself and my girlfriend (a photographer). I write short stories about her photos. Please check us out!

  2. Great story! Makes you feel for Brave Sir.Carleton! Am laughing for we seem to be on same wavelength again as far as spaceships go! Did you see my post yesterday and today ? πŸ™‚

  3. Wonderful story, Joy! Sir Carlton certainly gets my vote! Lady Beth is a lucky lady. I wonder what the other knights were thinking when Sir Landon did not return? My guess is…they will not be entering the forest any time soon . πŸ˜‰

  4. Hopefully people will believe Sir Carlton after Sir Landon’ s disappearance! Maybe he’ll manage to win Lady Beth’s affections, after all. πŸ™‚ A sweet story, PJ.

  5. Sir Landon should have believed Sir Carlton. At least Sir Carlton make it back alive. Looks like that will put an end to the knights going into the forest. Let’s hope so at least. Well done, Joy. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne
