Art Prompt Writing Competition #6 - GMuxx - The Cabin Boy

in fiction •  11 months ago

“I’ve never met a werewolf before.” Kira tilted her head, watching the boy. The sailors had him locked in the brig, thick wooden bars the only barrier between them. Outside, seagulls shrieked their displeasure at the wind. Waves shredded into frigid, salt-laden spray. The decks were unsafe, frozen and canting, and even below, she could barely take two steps before needing to hold on to something.

The boy hung his head. “They say I killed those people. I…I don’t remember.”

Beautifully crafted thinknzombie! I mean how could you possibly go wrong with a werewolf, petticoats, a governess, a sinking ship, a full moon and a failure of the criminal justice system... it all works perfectly.

Now I understand what zombies get from all those brains they eat. Ideas! And apparently, some not-small-amount of talent. Great story!

Thanks Jon. Coming from you that's high praise indeed. Oh, and the secret is writers, they have the best brains. Tasty!

Thanks @xanderslee! @jonknight and @johnkingwriter both have extremely strong entries too and there are likely more that I haven't been able to read yet. The Block is putting in a great effort on this contest. There are so many that I can't keep up.

I've got mine posted, too. Wouldn't even be mad if I lost cause all these stories are ridiculously good. I don't envy Muxx one bit trying to decide, haha.

I better go check out yours now. I think I read a draft of it...they're all blurring together into a buffet of awesome.

Seriously, though. It's insanity.

Wow, @thinknzombie. I didn't see that coming. Great twist and imagination.

·

Thank you! I was worried I'd telegraphed it too much. Glad it worked.

Oh hell yes man, that was epic to say the least - I absolutely love that twist and didn't see it coming until the very end.

Im flabbergasted that was amazing, I love your stories man - keep them coming!

·

Thanks @krystle! I know you have no time at all to read. I'm honored you took the time to read my story. Thank you.

No worries at all mate, it was honestly my great pleasure - now I just need to know more lol - Cheers :D

Well that was an unexpected twist at the end. Nice!

·

Thanks @choogirl! Thanks for reading. :-)

·

It was really good. I liked it. Sorry for the delayed upvote too. My steemvoter missed you for some reason.

I love that ending! Cracking read, Mr. Zombie!

·

Cheers John!

Weee! That was a nice play at the end. I got some tingles. Very authentic and 'big' story for being so short, lots of legit details and pictures. Excellent!

·

I hope they were the good kind of tingles. ;-)

Well damn..... This ends not at all like I imagined. What a ride, Andrew. Thank you!

I love the final version! The unexpected twist at the end is truly delightful. This was such fun to read, @thinknzombie.

·

Thanks @jayna! I’m really glad you like it. I really thought I’d telegraphed that twist too much.

Great story! when I have read this story is very interesting
