Dirt - challenge: Kortirion: 'Kept In His Place'

Title: Kept In His Place
Author: Kortirion
Character: Grima Worntongue
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Tolkien painted complex masterpieces in rich oil-paints; Kortirion draws moustaches with highlighter.

‘They treat me like dirt beneath their feet, these lordly warriors.’

He bent to serve the golden-haired riders; one stuck a foot out and he fell, sprawling full-length in the dirt, scattering the cups he carried. They laughed.

"Heh, young Grima’s found his place - in the dirt like a worm!"

He fled back to the kitchens...

‘Someday. I’ll show them!’
