6. 22 Red Rangers - by Dean Maia of Este

22 Red Rangers

"Did your Rangers start this foolishness?"

The young captain did not wilt under the Captain-General's stare. "They admit to being the first in the tavern and the first to challenge the Guards, but they accepted the challenge fairly."

The Captain-General turned from the twenty-two Rangers wrapped in red rugs and glared at the Guardsmen. "Did your men decide to steal the Ranger's uniforms before or after the challenge to swim the river in record time?"

The Guard captain did his best not to show his anger to his commander. "The Guards I have here admit they stole the uniforms because they thought the Rangers disrespectful." He turned to face them and bellowed, "Didn't you?"

It was all the Guards could do to keep from falling down drunk.

"That is enough." The Captain-General said sternly. "Since your Guards violated the rule of challenge they are confined to quarters until the Rangers leave Minas Trinth. The Eldest Man will teach them the rule. Dismissed."

He glared less menacingly at the Ranger captain. "After your men receive clean uniforms they will return the rugs to the caravan and each personally apologize for 'borrowing' them."

"Yes sir. Sir, one request. Please do not tell the Steward about this until the Rangers leave the City?"

"Do not worry Faramir, I will not."

Challenges: Story Discussions - 1131 posts

This is a catch-all forum designed to allow you, the reader and writer, to follow and discuss all entries into a given challenge.

As new challenges come along, I will link them to this forum. Within this forum, each challenge is listed in its own thread. Then within that thread, you may discuss any and all stories entered for that challenge. This prevents the endless multiplication of discussions devoted to one challenge by allowing us to simply add threads to this one.

Of course, you may always create your own personal story forum for your challenge entry, but I thought this might be a useful tool for us in that we could then more easily discuss them here and in the context of other fics that answer the same challenge.
