Fantasy Drabble #200 “Keep Your Receipts”

“I’d like to return this wand.”

“Return? Why, is something wrong with it?”

“It won’t cast Alreath’s Magic Arrow. It won’t cast anything at all. Not only that, I can’t cast anything myself, if I’m holding it.”

“Oh dear—”

“You can imagine how that might be inconvenient.”

“Sure. Absolutely—”

“I lost half of my party on what should have been a simple dungeon crawl. To Orcs. Orcs. Do you know how embarrassing that is?”

“I’m very sorry about that, sir; let’s get you your money back and then see if we can’t find something more suitable.”

“One that works, preferably.”
