100 Words – The Scavenger’s Game

Another great prompt from Velvet Verbosity. The word is FEASTING

The Scavenger’s Game

I weave a tale of madness from the edge of my doorstep. He wants a story, he wants a tale about kings feasting and princes roving. He wants a tale of debauchery for the newspaper. He doesn’t want the ruth; he would change it anyway, because the truth about them is dull. He pretends to be a friend, flashing a nice smile and wearing all the right body language to make himself seem friendly. I tell him the lies he wants to hear but I’m smiling to myself. His feast of scandal will be short and will hurt him greatly.
