Or Maybe Midgets - 2/10

2 - Cadiz, 1588

Even Queens are entitled to vengeance. Elizabeth's wish was a humiliating defeat for Spain. Death and destruction, Anyanka's stock in trade.

Philip pays his men in gold. She plans to help herself to some before the Armada sails. When she reaches the strongroom she finds unconscious guards, a boy on lookout, midgets loading gold into sacks.

"Don't take it all," says Anyanka. "That would annoy me."

"And?" replies a midget.

She shows her game face.

"Oh bloody hell, you again!" Dropping their bags, the midgets run.

Anyanka shrugs and takes some loot, wondering why they were so scared of her.
