very short story thing
took me about an hour and a half to write this load of crap. i can imagine it as a short film on late night channel 4!
got no proper title for it
TOO MUCH TIME AND MONEY
a young bachelor in his lonely apartment is watching a movie about gallant knights.
he is interested.
he grabs his laptop so he can delve deeper into the subject, focusing mainly on a knights weapons and armour.
he searches for a website that sells made to fit armour.
he opens a new tab and checks his online bank statement.
he has more than enough money to frivorously spend it on his newly attained obsession.
he goes back to the custom made armour website and orders a full set of armour, a shield and a sword.
days go by.
the doorbell to his apartment rings.
he opens the door, a delivery man tells him he has some packages for him.
the young bachelor helps the delivery man to bring the packages up the stairs to his apartment.
he signs for the delivery, smiles at the delivery man and closes the door to turn and look at his packages.
he rips open all of the packages to reveal his newly aquired sword, shield and set of armour.
he lays his purchases carefully on the floor, crosses his arms and feels a strange sense of pride.
he looks out of his window.
it looks cloudy but pleasant outside.
he clanks down the stairs of his apartment block steadily and purposefully in his suit of armour.
he opens the ground floor door and walks out onto the pavement outside.
as he walks along the pavement to his, as yet undecided, destination several pedestrians cross the road to avoid him.
he is happy.
he nears a cornershop.
the shop owner looks out the window and quickly rushes to the door to lock it and turns the sign to say 'closed'.
the bachelor pays him no mind and carries on walking past.
he notices there are no more pedestrians on the street.
he looks up, notices the clouds look dark and holds his hand out to feel for rain, realises that this action is quite pointless as he is wearing armour so goes to scratch his head in bewilderment at his own action.
he is well aware that this is also a pointless action but is quite happy to continue the gesture.
he carries on walking
another person in a full set of armour with a sword and shield walks around a corner.
they both stop suddenly.
they both look uneasy.
the rain starts to fall slightly heavier.
the bachelor looks at the insignia on his shield.
he looks up.
the other knight puts his hand on his sword.
there is a loud clap of thunder.
both of them take out their swords and run towards each other.
the young bachelor decapitates the other knight.
the helmet of the decapitated knight bounces on the floor.
the young bachelor holds his sword in the air in a triumphant pose.
he glances to the his side and can see an old woman staring out of her house window at him while on the phone.
he turns around and runs back to his apartment.
he gets back to his apartment safely.
he takes off his armour and sets it on a specially made stand in his bedroom.
he opens a large walk-in wardrobe and places the stand in the wardrobe next to his ninja gear, buccaneer outfit and samurai dress.
he closes the door and walks into his kitchen.
he opens the fridge and grabs a can of beer.
he plumps himself down on his leather three-piece suite in his front room, cracks open the beer and switches on the tv.
there is a show about vikings on the tv.
he looks at his laptop.
*notes* 1) detail the fight. maybe a man walking his dog gets involved?
2) maybe the other knight was evil, thats why the shop owner closed the door.
maybe the shop owner was grateful on the young bachelors return?
3) what was the insignia?
4) bollox i cant be arsed to go back to this.
5) i think this would make a good short movie. id ****in watch it!
what do you think? ive never wrote a story without any talking in it but i quite like it!
Well it's different! Keep going with it and put some flesh on the bones. Who knows where it will lead! Isn't the human psyche fascinating? lol
