Obloquy of eviction


Castle (Photo credit: dirk kirchner [www.unforgiven-art.de])

The shandygaff, though sweet and refreshing, was no panacea for the obloquy the Doctor had suffered the night before.  After taking a tortuous route which, in order to throw off his pursuers it had been necessary to protract, he was left feeling drained and mingy.  Damned if he was going to forgive those bloody philistines; nay, he’d rather flense the lot of them.

A nascent hamlet by a quaint little castle on a hill; indeed!  He’d seen them all gambol up to his gates, pitchforks and torches in hand, to break down his doors and destroy what he had brought to life; oh the insult!  Branding him evil!  Chasing him from his laboratory!

The doctor nursed his pewter tankard, turning it this way and that in the flickering firelight of the dingy public house as grey clouds gradually broke up revealing weak daylight which utterly failed to brighten his mood.
