School Assignments that I Decided To Post

Here are some school assignments that I liked. I may turn them into stories, if you have a suggestion for one, COMMENT!!!

This one is sadish 1) I sat in the dungeon, smelled the stench, and lamented my loss. The loss of my battle, the loss of my honor.
I heard the cries of other knights. Before my lost battle I would have called them cowards, but now I myself felt like crying out. Only my determination to remain strong for the last ounce of honor I had kept me quiet. The battle had done more than give me scars, it had stripped me of my rank, and my honor.
I stared at my reflection in the grimy window, my long, auburn hair cascading over my shoulders, betraying my identity as a girl.
I sighed heavily knowing my honor could never, no matter what I did, be restored. i wouldn't be permitted to leave the castle walls.
If I ever got home. If I survived. If my kingdom allowed me to survive.
My heart ached at what my kingdom would think, I might as well have betrayed them. I may be one of the smartest, and fastest fighters, but none of that would matter. I was a girl. We were there to cook and clean. I had slipped in to the army as a boy. I thought I could keep up the act. I was wrong, my hair had betrayed when the enemy had ripped off my helmet.
My fellow knights refused to help me escape, and wouldn't let me help them. I was unsure of my fate. Would I be killed? Would I be held forever until I died? Would I be released? Could I escape?
I wanted to escape, if only to tell my kingdom what I had done. I saw nothing wrong with being a girl, but my kingdom did. If I was to die, I wanted to be known as the girl who screwed up, but admitted who I was. Not the traitor who hid her identity from her kingdom.
One thing for sure, I would never be the same, poor orphan who lived by herself on a farm. Ever. (I decided to make this one into a story. See the page "Title suggestions?" Enjoy!!!
