Five-Hundred Word Challenge 540: Source of the Legs

Legs poke out from behind the screen, but he screen is not part of the body of which they belong to.

There is a thread that must be followed if one is to work out as to whom these legs are the property of.

Of course, there is a great distance that must be traveled, but the distance traveled is of course relative to the size of the traveler. Were it not, then there would be issues.

Well, there probably already are issues, but that is neither here nor there.

A great journey of perilous perils and dizzying highs must be completed. These legs have a source and the source must be found in order to discern the legs in relation to their source.

Many a character will be met on the journey and on the journey many a betrayal will be had. Allies who were trustworthy will reveal themselves to be evil, and those who were considered to be those among the ranks of enemies will turn out to be those that should have been trusted.

There are those that do not want the source of the legs o be found and they have their own sinister purposes for this. These purposes will not matter to the protagonist of the journey, but they may still cause issues.

Still, there will be the pushing past and hopefully the eventual success among the grandest of plains and the tallest of mountains, and eventually after climbing and falling and swimming and walking and many other a thing, the source shall be found.

Of course, then the journey back must be completed, for the journey is usually one that is seen as being in one direction, but of course it does include the way back. Then again, the way back is seldom one that is interesting.

Well, that is how it is thought anyway.

Once the source is found, the journey back will commence. Those who would obstruct will of course make one more attempt and of course one hopes that they will remain unsuccessful, for no one wants to see the antagonists succeed in this scenario for some given reason.

Then when the return is complete, the person who decided that the journey was one that was worth going on can reveal the information that they discovered, therefore revealing that they went on a journey of real length and arduous arduousness which would then of course lead to their becoming someone who would become just another background person, or something.

This is due to the event that, once the journey is complete, there is no need for the importance of the person anymore. Hopefully they would not be expecting to be celebrated for all eternity as, despite them going on the quest to find out the source of the legs, all that people cared about was getting the information and nothing else.

It’s unfortunate in a way, but sometimes that is the way it goes with these massive, uncompromising and dangerous quests.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 07:27:10

I think that I’ve done better, but I do like that the premise of this is silly.

Written at home.
