No More than a Fool

Jamie & Zoe meet yet another invader setting himself up to learn the true meaning of 'harmless'.

. . .

"We captured these last two in the city, sir."

The invading Overlord regarded the furious young man who glared at him over his gag even as he tried to kick the guards who held them. The petite girl beside him was firmly defiant. "Well done. Obviously violent and fomenting potential rebellion. Were there any more with them?"

"Only a little man, a fool they used for distraction while attempting their futile resistance sallies, no doubt. He got away, but he's harmless enough without these instigators. The population is cleared of all rebels."

"None stand in our way?"

"None."

"Launch the invasion!"
