Peace Offering

“Here.” The soldier held out the bottle, his face sweaty in the midday sun. “Want some?”

Dani backed away, eyeing the soldier’s gun. “You first.”

Dropping the gun, the soldier took a sip. “See?”

Dani grabbed the bottle and gulped. Fresh water trickled down his throat.

He smiled. “Thank you.”

Pretty good 50 words.


Thank you!

Great short! Kind making me thirsty.


Thank you! And you're not the only one...

"Necesity [chance] is painted bald", we say over here. But it times of war and crisis trust is in high demand. Good story, @alheath.


Indeed. Sharing water is such a symbolic gesture of friendship, and a means of survival. Thank you!

Really nice, @alheath. You put us right there in that desperate and dramatic moment when -- as much as Dani wants the water -- he needs to trust first.


Thank you! Even in times of conflict, basic needs have a way of bringing us together.

Nice to see the side of a soldier that isn't the supposed inhuman killing machine.


Thank you! Soldiers are people too. I like to think they'd want their own loved ones to be shown the same compassion.

These are sexy and fab =)


Thank you, but you need to get out more.

This is magnificent and sleek, friend.


Thank you!
