Friday Flash: How To Become A Warrior

Another drabble for Friday Flash!

To become a warrior you must do five things.

First: master the whip and the knife.

Second: Acquire a noble steed. Mind, acquire it yourself. No fit warrior buys his sandworm. You must trek into the desert and find a sandworm nest. Be easy. Almost no one loses a limb or an eye acquiring a sandworm babe.

Three: Train your young steed. Take no heed of the legends; sandworms are docile, loving creatures. They merely require a firm whip.

Four: Learn a riding bow from your sandworm’s back. Be diligent; this might be your most important weapon.

Five: Find a worthy cause to serve. Only brigands serve their own ambitions.
