Gargleblaster #168: The Mermaid


There was poundin’ on the door.
BANG, BANG
I can’t ignore him, he won’t leave.

 Through the door I say, “I know what you want, Cap’n.
“She’s not here. I threw her back.”

 “Arrgh, Ya won’t mind if we look around then.”


 


Holy smokes – A prize “Top Row Seven” I am honored and excited.

  1. Love the suspense you have created here. I can picture it as a movie scene. I was trying to go in a similar direction for my mermaid tale but just couldn’t find the words. I’m glad I went off in a different direction now as you covered it so well!

    • I like to include pirates whenever possible. I’m thinking about taking Pirateology classes at the local Junior College. Considering a career change.
      I’m glad you liked it. Thanks.

  2. Classic police tactics …loved the line about “throwing her back”, that should buy him a few minutes. Just keep them away from the tub. 😉
