I came up with the idea thanks to the post of Harry Troxell on FB group (thanks Harry :)). He posted a photo of Guy Williams and Romy Schneider during sword presentation. His signature “Showing his sword” was so double meaning that I can’t resist.
I use here NWZ’s Victoria’s name, but to be true it fits just as well to NWZ as to WDZ version, so You can read just as well Anna Maria or Magdalena or Elena or any other female character You like pairing the most.
—– Showing his sword —–
Don Alejandro was in a happy mood because he had just returned from a successful cattle auction. He was just walking down the hall to his room when he heard his son’s voice coming from his room. However, what made him stop was a second, female voice.
“The woman in Diego’s bedroom!”
He approached and now he heard the conversation clearly, each sentence turning his joy into bubbling anger.
“Show me your sword, you promised me.” – It was her.
“Of course querida. Give me a second, I’ll take it out.” – Definitely Diego.
The rustle of clothes.
“Wow, your sword is really big! Bigger when I look at it closely. Can I touch it?”
“Of course, but touch it lightly. It is …”
Alejandro knew Diego didn’t have any sword, and he certainly kept his distance from sharp weapons.
“If you lie down on the bed, I’ll show you how I use my sword.”
“Why on the bed?”
“It will be safer this way.”
“Oh, all right then.” The rustling of the sheets. “You can start.”
It was too much for the old caballero. He burst into the room like a storm screaming. “How dare you compromise the reputation of a poor girl!”
Victoria was sitting on the quilt against the wall, and Diego was facing her. When he heard his father, he turned to him with a well-recognizable sword in his hand.
“I only show Victoria my sword, Father.”
Alejandro looked at his son’s pants, which were still buttoned. Then he looked at the sword.
“This isn’t your sword. It is Zorro’s sword.”
“Precisely. My fiancée asked me to show her my sword. If you want to join us, close the door and sit on the bed next to her.”
“Aaaauuu, I’m not dreaming!”
