Drabble: The Squatting Guard
She had been squatting in front of the opening for two hours, and looked ready to keep squatting for hours.
“You’re not looking very ladylike right now,” he said.
“I. Don’t. Care.”
He watched the stubborn girl a little longer before stepping back. He signalled the rest of the team to pull back as well.
But they didn’t leave.
Out of sight, the team waited until the girl grew tired of her vigil. In her defense, she had guarded the opening until the sun set, which was not bad for an untrained, unprepared civilian, but ‘not bad’ wasn’t good enough. Once the girl was too far to intervene, they moved in and captured their target.
