Prompt 49: What do you do on a rainy day? Write about it in 250 words.
On the very rainiest of days, the kind when you can not possibly go outside, this is the kind of day when I decide to board the pirates ship. I have been looking at it for a while now. It is moored just in my line of sight. It’s probably a bad idea, but maybe…
I shake my head to dispel the haunting images of the last time I saw my sister. It was a different pirate ship, another day, but still the same. Pirates! With a firm resolve, my mind is set. I can just stow away on the ship, stay completely hidden. They would never even know I was there. Then they would take me to their secret world and I would find Isabella. I breathed deeply through my nose and crept to the very edge of the plank. Without giving myself a chance to change my mind, I plunged into the icy waters. I wasn’t expecting the waves to be so rough, the water to be so cold. I sucked in a big gulp of air. No turning back now, even if I wanted to. I forced my frigid arms to start working again, to take me to the ship waiting patiently for me to board. I wasn’t counting on the captain of the ship to be watching me as I half drowned, half swam towards him. And I certainly didn’t expect a pirate to be so…handsome.
This is my rainy days…making up stories.
