The Silver Blade
The setting is Coveguard. The city before Falmouth. Trapped in Victorian times, they took it upon themselves to industrialize and embrace the Steampunk culture. Our main character is Darryl John Azariah, an ancestor of Matthew Willis.
Darryl John-Azariah had always loved grimy Coveguard with its shredded, shaggy shipyards. It was a place where he felt stressed.
He was an angsty, worried, brandy drinker with wobbly hands and charming arms. His friends saw him as a roasted, rabble snatching revolutionist. Once, he had even saved a wild broken machine that was stuck in a drain. That’s the sort of man he was.
Darryl walked over to the window and reflected on his depressing surroundings. The chill teased like protesting pigeons.
Then he saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the figure of Victoria Felzorath. Victoria was a determined widow with greasy hands and brown arms.
Darryl gulped. He was not prepared for Victoria.
As Darryl stepped outside and Victoria came closer, he could see the calm smile on her face.
“I am here because I want revenge,” Victoria bellowed, in an angry tone. She slammed her fist against Darryl’s chest, with the force of 1959 dogs. “I frigging hate you, Darryl John-Azariah.”
Darryl looked back, even more worried and still eyeing the silver blade. “Victoria, give me back my freedom,” he replied.
They looked at each other with puzzled feelings, like two many, miniature mutts shouting at a very peculiar revolution, which had classical music playing in the background and two brave uncles gyrating to the beat.
Suddenly, Victoria lunged forward and tried to punch Darryl in the face. Quickly, Darryl grabbed the silver blade and brought it down on Victoria’s skull.
Victoria’s greasy hands trembled and her brown arms wobbled. She looked cross, her body raw like a repulsive, raspy rock.
Then she let out an agonizing groan and collapsed onto the ground. Moments later Victoria Felzorath was dead.
Darryl John-Azariah went back inside and made himself a nice glass of brandy.
