He was the bravest of warriors. She was the Chief’s daughter.

On this day, they became husband and wife.

Amid singing and dancing, the newlyweds were led to their wedding tent by well-wishers holding lighted candles.

It was the moment Egecatl had been waiting for. He had dreamed and fantasized about it for years.

Now, he wondered if he’d rise to the occasion.

Teyacapan took off her robe and lay down beside him, filled with anticipation of what was to come.

Egecatl touched and kissed her to make sure she was real.

It was then he realized, he had misfired.

    Dear Plaridel,

    A lovely lay and play on the perils that beset even the mightiest of warriors. Very well done, from the names to the setting to the imagery your words conjure up in our minds.

    Yours,

    Doug

    Let’s hope he has more than one bullet in that “gun.” HA!
    That happened to my brother once. He never got it out of his pants. What an embarrassing moment.

    As long as it only happens once – a girl can tire rapidly of saying ‘Don’t worry about it.’
