Pirate’s Lair


I wake up, face-down on a beach. I cannot believe I survived that shipwreck! Coming to my feet, I look around, noting I’m alone.

Freedom! No more slavery for me! I’m the master of my own destiny, finally.

As I explore the island I notice a very narrow passageway and shudder as I see the chain. I’ve the marks on my neck, wrists and ankles proving I know their purpose all too well.

A mess of hair and beard appears, his stench almost unbearable.

“Well now, looky here. Welcome to Tortola! We need someone to stack the rum! Follow me!”

  1. It’s funny, ever time I see these pictures i have an immediate initial reaction as to what it might be for me and in this case it was very similar to yours. The story would be different, of course but the image is very similar. Nice job.

  2. Oh no, not again… but maybe he’ll get the chance and become a pirate. Better than being a slave. He may even convince them to wash once in a while. 🙂 Great story, the relief from the chains was really touching.
