Writing Prompt: Sky and Knife

Jordan lay on the ground panting. She had never fought so hard in her life. She knew the training would get more intense as she got older. She just underestimated how intense it would get. She stabbed her knife into the ground and struggled  to get up using the handle as leverage. She found herself eye to eye with Sky once she was fully standing. 

“Is that the best you can do? I expected better than that considering who your parents are.”

“Oh blow me, Sky. You know good and well that I just had a medical procedure last week and I am not at full strength.” 

“As if that is an excuse. Your mother fought a wendigo in the forest the night she gave birth to you.”

“Why are you so obsessed with my parents, Sky?”

“Because they are a legend, Jordan. Everybody knows how amazing they are. I just can’t understand how they could have had the misfortune to be blessed with a child as clumsy as you. They must be so devastated.”

“Actually, they are proud of me. Thank you very much. Not all talents take place in the battle field and the arena. Just because we all train to be warriors doesn’t mean that all of us will go on to be warriors.”

“We all strive to be warriors though. It’s the most prestigious position that we can be in with this clan.”

“Not everybody feels that way.”

“Jordan! How could you say such a thing? You of all people. You may not be as good as your parents, but you’re still one of the best warrior prospects this clan has.”

“I thought you just said I was clumsy and my parents must be so devastated.”

“Oh shush, Jordan. You knew what I meant. It baffles us all how well you pull through in combat despite how clumsy you are. You already know that though. Why be such a minx?”

“Because it irks you when I am the way I am. I can’t help it that I am quick to the draw despite how prone I am to accidents.”

“Touche. Will you eat lunch with me. I want to discuss the book I’m reading currently.”

“The mighty Sky is reading a book? I must alert the elders!”

“There’s nothing wrong with a warrior reading! We must exercise our mind as well as our muscles.”

“Oh I’m well aware of that, Sky. I just didn’t think you had time to do anything other than train.”

“I have more time for things in my leisure time than you think. Not that you would know. Not that you pay any attention to any of us after you’re done with training every day.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“It means once you have showered after training for the day, you disappear. Nobody knows where you go. It’s actually widely talked about when we get together on the weekends.”

“Wait… you all talk about me when I’m not around?”

“Yeah. It’s not like we say anything bad about you. We just don’t understand why you don’t want to hang out with your peers. You should want to get to know us.”

“I know you, Sky. We grew up together.”

“That’s not what I mean and you know it. Why can’t you just tell me where you go every day.”

“It wouldn’t interest you.”

“How do you know?”

“I just do. Why is it so important to you?”

“Because it’s important to you.”
