Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 31


A few weeks later.

Silver landed on the far tower roof and sighed as one of the recruits she was training landed and stumbled off the roof only to catch himself. “What was that?” She asked.silverarmor

“Sorry ma’am, I wasn’t paying attention.” He saluted as she flew over to look at him.

“Not paying attention is what gets you and your partner in trouble. Always be aware of your surroundings. Always be on the lookout for potential threats. You’re a guard you need to be alert at all times.” She flew back to where she landed to begin with. She looked at the three recruits that were trying to become royal guards.

“Ma’am?” One of the recruits saluted.

She looked at the recruit. “Yes?”

“Um…” He looked at the other two recruits and they nodded. “We were wondering…”

“Spit it out!” She said to him.

“Are you married to the actor Paradox?” He said quickly.

Silver stared at the recruit and then looked at the other two. They gave her a weak smile. “Does this have anything to do with our training?”

All three of them shook their heads. “No Ma’am.” They answered together.

“I didn’t think so.” She sighed. “Yes, I’m married to Paradox. He’s more than an actor though, so can we get back to training please?”

All three saluted. “Yes Ma’am.”

“Follow me then.” She jumped up and flapped her wings. She then flew towards the ground quickly. The recruits flew after her in surprise. “I cannot wait until my shift is over today.” She muttered.
