Drabble: War! Huh! What is it good for?

Happy birthday to bagheera_san


I’m still being inspired by the Grammy results. This time it’s not a fandom drabble at all, but one taken from my knowledge of 13th-century military history (but just as stupid as my fandom drabbles). 100 words, PG.


War! Huh! What Is It Good For?


“Peace be upon you,” Amir Bin Hus greeted the messenger.

“This is no time for peace,” the messenger replied. “The Shah has proclaimed Holy War against the infidel Genghis Khan. Gather your clan and join us!”

The Amir stroked his beard and thought.

“Cities lie in ruins,” said the traveller. “Rivers run red, pyramids of skulls are everywhere, and in all Khwarezm this is the only town not sacked by the Mongols. The Shah is dead. How have you survived?”

The Amir stroked his beard and explained. “They tried to make me go to Jihad. I said no, no, no.”
