A Pirate's Tale

by Brenda Henderson

The year was 1860. "Ahoy There, Matyes"; shouted the Captain as he hailed the new crew while they boarded the ship.

The Navigator, the Cartographer and the First Mate were excited about the GRAPHIC depictions of the markers on the Map as they made ready for the trip.

There were triumphant shouts of JOY as they set sail from the infamous Port of New Orleans.

This would be the adventure of a lifetime; A voyage fraught with SPICE and filled with the type of exploits of which they had dreamed!

They would seek wealth, bounty and a kidnapped maiden named Beth on a voyage where others before them had met only with peril and DEATH.

The hull was loaded with barrels of Rum; For a band of Pirate rescuers they had become!
