Six Sentence Sunday: Penance (from the dusty pages of an old notebook) #sixsunday
My Sunday Six is from a short story I wrote quite a while ago, named Penance.
I wonder why we tell young girls such outlandish stories about chivalry and brave knights. The imagination takes them and creates unrealistic dreams of men coming to rescue them from the mundane life of “normal” people. They are so young and impressionable, they can’t help but be sucked in by the lies. We tell them about things like the honor of men. Now, that is a laugh; not to mention an oxymoron. Men and honor should not be allowed in the same sentence, let alone the premise of a story meant only to blind us from the truth.
