Drabble: Princess in Need of Rescue (Inn Bingo) – by Gabrielle Lissauer

by specklit

“Please!” The girl in the silk dress cried, throwing herself at Alec’s feet, “You have to help me! If you don’t, they’ll kill me!”

Alec backed up trying to avoid her grasping hands. “I…”

“I’ll do anything!”

“Yeah, alright.” He pulled her to her feet and dragged her in his office. Just as he shut the door a squad of men burst into the lobby.

The leader snarled, “Where is she?”


Five minutes later, with Devon’s help, he tossed the last of them out of the door.

“This doesn’t count as a princess in need of rescue,” Devon said.

Author’s Note: Damsels in distress are quite a common trope, of course. Of course Alec is going to help her if he can. In this case, the question is raised: if you put yourself into the “story” can you count it as part of the game? Devon thinks not. [Editor: This is the fifth in a series. Check out all of Gabrielle’s stories for the rest of them.]
