The Gavel part 2

(A short/short in four parts.)

Do Not Tempt Me, Woman!

“You will face your punishment now.”

“Which is?”

“You will live your life with one man.”

“Of whose choosing?”

“Ours.”

“I see only you.”

“Do not question our authority!”

“I only question yours.”

“This impertinence will stop!”

“It will stop when I die.”

“Do not tempt me, Woman!”

Her lip curled into a knowing smile as he seemed to shrink before her. He clutched his gavel tightly, the only tool he possessed that was hard to the touch.
