The Door

Yul stood at attention.


Guard a door, the Evil Overlord said. It'll be dull, boring, and pointless, the Evil Overlord said. A fitting punishment for his clumsiness, the Evil Overlord said.


Guard a door.


It was supposed to be three days straight.


It wasn't even three hours.


"What'cha got there?"


Yul glanced at the Hero. "Got where?" he asked.


"There. Behind you."


Yul rolled his eyes. "A door, obviously."


"Yes, but what's behind the door?"


"Don't know. Don't care. I'm here to guard the door."


"But not what's behind the door?"


"Guess not."


Yul protected the door. By opening it.
