NaPoWriMo, Day 19

Today’s prompt was the Two of Swords from the Rosetta Tarot. (Click here to see the card.)

Local color

X marks the spot where the war began, here
in our very own Blue Rose Tavern. The Lunese
are notorious for changing their minds
then changing them back again, but on that ill-starred
day the Lunese ambassador waxed or waned
one time too many. The Librite deputy minister lost
her legendary equanimity, and the two exchanged
sharp words before they crossed swords. The war
itself was brief, of course, as the Lunese rescinded
their declaration within days of issue and the Librites
regained their composure after a few minor skirmishes.
