Three Things Challenge: PL106

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing! 😀

Today’s prompt: scorpion, drum, papaya

  1. I looked out over my realm one last time. The rebellion had taken its toll. Those who supported me had simply dropped their weapons and gone home to their villages. The rebel leaders allowed this, their eyes were for me only. N’baka walked over and handed me the cup of papaya juice. I knew it was laced with scorpion poison. The wind whispered through the dusty compound. The drummer was waiting. I nodded and he started beating a rhythmic dirge, one hand only on his ostrich skin drum. I had been chief of the Zulu for one year. A sudden light in the East as the Sun began its journey across the sky. I raised the drink, waiting for the men in front of me to turn away and swallowed.

  2. I was drumming whilst eating a juicy papaya, when a scorpion decided he wanted some.
