Fixed (Flash Fiction)

Found on Google Images. I own nothing

FLASH FICTION PROMPT

“Shhh!” He elbowed his twin in the stomach, leaning as far away from the door as he could. “Jinny!”

“Ow, what?” She snapped. “I can’t breathe and you’re stomping on my-”

“He’s coming this way!” The older boy hissed, fiercely. “Hold your breath!”

The squeak was half-muffled and for a moment, neither twin really did breathe. The ominous footsteps came down the hallway and paused at several doorways in turn.

Jinny breathed a sigh of relief when the footsteps didn’t even stop in front of the linen closet. A giggle of relief spilled through and she clapped both hands over her mouth, her eyes laughing at her twin.

He winked. “We did it!”

The door popped open and the darkness was disturbed by the harsh light of the hallway. Before either tween could react, two strong hands had caught them about the shoulders and wrestled them into the hallway.

“Ow!” They chorused as they were roughly pushed into the cold, castle walls.

The dark eyes glittered, flickering carefully over the squirming forms before they settled into a definite glare.

The twins gulped.

“Um, Hi Mr. Gardeth.” Jinny squeaked. “Did you need us for something?”

The old knight snorted. “You’ll wish I was.” He said, releasing his hold on them. “In fact, you’ll dream of it.”

“We didn’t mean any harm!” The boy protested. “It was just a harmless prank. We’ll fix it!”

“No need.” A smirk settled on the knight’s face. “It’s already fixed.”

“Oh, good.” Jinny yawned. “So what do you want us for?”

“Oh, I do not desire your immediate presence.” The smirk became downright wicked. “His majesty requires it as soon as I am able.

The twins blanched.

“Father?”

“Papa?”

The twins exchanged a glance. This was bad. 

“Said something about you were free to go about unless you were caught.”

Jinny gulped. “Right.” She nibbled on her lower lip. “I guess we got caught.”
