100 Words / Prompt: Game

Henry threw down his headset in disgust, pushing violently away from the keyboard. “God damn ninja!” he exploded.

Teddy looked up from his screen.  “What’s that?”

“Torst!  Damned dwarf is ninja-ing the loot!  His tanking sucks yet he rolled Need on both Epics that dropped, even though they’re not warrior gear.  Since they’re BOP he can’t even put them up in the Auction House, to him they’re vendor crap.”

“Maybe you should take a break, Grandpa” Teddy said, “after all, it’s only a game.”

Henry swore again, reinforcing Teddy’s notion of why his own mother had such a quick temper.

  1. Ha ha…loved the Grandpa line; this reminded me of playing Dungeons and Dragons after school when I was in high school (not video, face to face). Ninjas and loot and warriors, oh my ;D

  2. “Damned dwarf is ninja-ing the loot!”

    I love that line!

    And “grandpa” was completely unexpected. This was a fun read.

  3. I didn’t expect Grandpa either. But I can definitely see it.

  4. LOL, NICE!!! Gotta love WOW outbursts.

  5. Ha! Grandpa?! I didn’t expect that. Fun take on the theme.
