I can't believe we've reached the end of yet another week! The best part? It's time for another round of Five Sentence Fiction. This week's prompt is pirates. If you'd like to find out more about what it's all about, or try it yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!
Most people only worry about pirates when they're out at sea, but not us. Every full moon when the clock strikes midnight, we huddle, shivering with terror in our beds.
It starts in the living room, the sounds of cannon fire and whoops of glee echoing up through the floor, the splashing of salty waves against their old wooden ship rumbling below.
They patrol the hallways, ghostly waves rolling in beneath the doors as they whisper and beckon for us to join them.
They only have an hour before the sounds begin to fade and the waves recede, as we breathe a collective sigh of relief that we're safe for another month.
Well everyone, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I welcome all of your comments below in the comments section, and cherish every one. If you're still jonesing for more Five Sentence Fiction, just check out the links below. Thanks and have a great weekend!
