Today's Challenge: Defiance is defined as the willingness to contend or fight. Write a story or poem or create artwork where the characters defy authority in some way.
Beregond heard Pippin's tidings with dismay. The Lord Steward had lost his wits and was taking his still living son to the Silent Street? The Hobbit begged him to intervene, but it was strictly forbidden for a guard to leave his post.
Beregond had worked long and hard to become a Citadel Guard. Disobedience was unthinkable with a heavy price to pay. He trusted his superiors and obeyed without question.
But Lord Faramir, his beloved Captain, was in danger and he alone could help him. It took Beregond only a moment to decide. Sometimes authority had to be defied and rules broken.
