50 Word Story: ‘Courage’

Hi folks! Ok, so a bit later than I said, and the 50 word story challenge first, but still…enjoy!

Liam sees the rifle nudge her back, a warning.

“Do it.” The soldier is impatient.

Liam’s gaze flicks to his own revolver, pointed at his father, who is still resolute in The Cause.

Suddenly, his wife finds courage, swings an elbow – makes contact.

Liam repositions, fires, and all three run.

It occurs to me it’s not really a 50 word ‘challenge’ as such, I think others just say ‘here’s a 50 word story’ but because I found it REALLY HARD, I think that’s why I’m using the word ‘challenge’ :s

As it’s my first 50 word story, feedback is massively appreciated 😀

Thanks for stopping by!
