A single acorn

The high king1 had slayed the giant2, but at great cost. In his rampage, the giant levelled most of the forest and lit fire3 to the parts he hadn’t4.

The king’s men had sent messages5 to evacuate nearby villages and he was thankful that as the battle progressed, rain started to fall, dousing the fire before it could roll through them.

Now, looking at the destruction, he reflected6 on whether the battle had been worth this tragedy. Would future plays7 cast him as hero… or tyrant?

A vibrant rainbow8 arched over the blackened earth as the king knelt down and carefully buried an acorn9 he found laying there.
