55 Flash Fiction Friday #45: Chapter 37 - Shabaash!


Some stories are the same in any language.
"Achchaa" he replied, "so are you running now from the one who left the bruises I can see?"

"No" she answered, "one does not run from hyena shit."

His laugh was almost musical, and his hands clapped in rhythm to its tune. "Shabaash!" he managed to say, breathless.

"The hyenas also said that", she remarked.

Notes:
Shabaash: "bravo", often used facetiously (though probably not in this case).

We dragons eat Hyenas but you didn't mean real ones. It was just about bad people.
