NOTE: This is a re posting of one of my first hooks. It was put up as a sub page, I’m still getting the hang of this blog stuff. But I liked it too much not to keep it on my list of hooks so back again ..
Its festival season and the party is enjoying some well earned rest and relaxation. Over the course of the day one of the knights is the apparent stand out in the crowd. He is well on his way to sweeping the whole event and taking first prize.
At about mid day after breaking for lunch festivities the second half of the tourney is about to begin. One of the players overhears the squire of the stand out knight speaking to another squire angrily “Do as I say and well all be rich! Give this to your master before he starts his first pass slip it in his drink.” A Knight walks past and the rough Squire pulls the other to the side “Trust me it has worked on the rest of the field it will work again. No one will be the wiser.”
The tourney horns blow startling you as you look in the direction of the noise. When you look back the boys are gone.
