The Sheriff's Discomfiture

Work Text:

Today, I went to the Love Day to prove my claim on Sir Geoffrey's land.

When I arrived at the disgraceful Love Day, who would I find as the judge but Friar Tuck! He made us go stand on the ground below him. Me, the High Sheriff of Nottingham! And he took his time reading our title deeds. Then when he finally got around to delivering judgment, somehow my dam broke!

As I was climbing out, Friar Tuck bumped into me, and made me fall back in. I got all wet, but I managed to duck my incompetent lieutenant under.
