The Haunted Wordsmith prompts

For the prompt there were three starters. I picked prompt B – Sentence starter “Someone is angry – very angry.” It’s also a full moon tonight. How syncronistic is that?

 

“Someone is angry – very angry”

“What’s that Cap?”

“You holdin tight boy?”

“Yes Sir!”

“Good.”

“See that moon over there?”

“Yes Sir!”

“She’s a full one!”

“Yes Sir!”

“How’d I know you were askin.”

“Yes Sir!”

“She’s pullin heavy on us.

we’ll just hafta go with her.

so hang on tight son and keep

her level!”

“Yes Papa.”

§

“That’s the last time I saw him”

“Ya mean?”

“Yep. Just disappeared. I reckon

the moon got him.”

“hmm”

“Least, that’s what I thought at the time.

Still do.”

“Hmm.”

I ain’t never been out again.”

“Ya mean.”

“Yep.  Never found him. Never will. 

Ain’t gonna try.”

“I Reckon.”
