Drabble: Warriors


“Emperor Dorn, the Humans approach!”

“Open the gates,” said Dorn. “We shall greet me.”

Dorn’s skin rippled into aggressive coloration. His proboscis swelled and reddened, and the hair on his head stood up on end, to display his strength and virility. The guards followed suit. Resplendent in their checked battle pantaloons and harness, they presented a terrifying front. This upstart race would see what proud and ancient warriors we were, and would give us the respect we deserve.

The door creaked open.

“Oooh, you’re right! They do look just like little clowns!”

“Hush, you’re embarassing them.”

“But they’re sooo adorable!”
