Sunday Writing Prompt “The Warehouse”

Our photoprompt this week shows cage fighting, and the scene is set perfectly in our prompt post below:

The whistles and shouts were deafening.
It was a special night with the favourite taking on newcomers.
The guards were ready for any intervention by the authorities, though it was hoped that lining certain pockets would turn a blind eye and a deaf ear.
An almighty cheer almost lifted the roof when the champion took to the ring.
Applause and catcalling met their opponent.
The Emcee took the mike and centre stage, looking extremely uncomfortable and nervous.
Turning full circle to get the audience’s attention before he spoke, he felt a thousand pairs of eyes burn right through to his soul.
‘Ladies! Your attention please!’
The atmosphere was electric.
‘In the Blue corner, we have your reigning champion, the Deadly Della!’
More whistles and shouts from below the caged canvas.
‘In the red corner, we have Teasing Tally!’
Beckoning the two wrestlers to the centre of the ring, he said
‘You know the rules. No biting, punching below the belt or directly to the breast area, and no nails to the eyes. Give the women a show……………. four rounds minimum. Got it?’
High fives followed, and the fighters returned to their prospective corners.
Stella dug Molly in the ribs.
‘Best Hen Night ever!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
