OLWG# 182- Trevor

Written for OLWG#182

When Trevor first learned of his posting to the Queen’s Guard he was so excited he couldn’t hardly breathe. He was gonna be a ‘Flash Harry’ with a bearskin hat.

Along with his orders he got an economy class ticket on Continental Airlines. He was supposed to leave from HOU to LHR in ten days. He never questioned why a farm boy and a US Army Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic from Texas would be posted to Buckingham Palace, charged with guarding the Queen. He didn’t question the orders though. He was happy to leave Fort Drum even if it was only for a little while before they discovered their mistake.

This week’s prompts were:

  1. couldn’t hardly breathe
  2. Oh Boy
  3. I got tired

  1. Trevor Darnley!
    Yes, sir!
    The commander looked up in surprise at hearing two voices reply.
    Trevor Darnley of, um, Houston?
    Yes, sir!
    All three men exchanged looks.
    The commander asked, of Texas, or of Scotland?
    Aye, Scotland, yes sir.
    Just out of curiosity, said the commander, on which street do you live?
    The two Trevors looked at one another.
    Chapel Road, said the Trevor from Texas.
    Aye! confirmed the Trevor from Scotland.
    The commander shook his head.
