Microfiction: Flaming Galleon

The Pirate crew cheered as their target burst into flames.

The Captain smiled to herself. The Black Blade Pirates had claimed yet another victim. Their tally now rested at twenty. She roared out to her crew in jubilation.

The Captain and the crew however, soon became silent. They could hear laughter coming from the Galleon’s deck.

That is all they heard before cannons open fired on the pirate crew…

Microfiction: Back

Every time I dump her she keeps coming back. The relationship is going no where. All she wants is the physical aspect of it. She never wants to speak, or discuss her dreams or ambitions. I had realized that it was not working out. But, she kept coming back, begging for me to take her back, creating a scene.

She’s still coming back….
