Friday Fiction: The Design

“Surely thou jest,” Denis cried out. The duke, with bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, pushed his sketch towards Denis who cringed inwardly: I wouldn’t build a mud hut for my dog with that design! He prayed to be delivered from men with more money than brains, especially those who thought they were the Lord’s gift to modern 14th century architecture.

“Pointed arches are the wave of the ecclesiastical future,” Denis announced. He stretched open his design for the new church. The duke dropped his head on the vellum, snoring.

“Good,” Denis said, “we agree. I shall commence on the morrow.”
