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!”


“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.”


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

Still do.”


I ain’t never been out again.”

“Ya mean.”

“Yep.  Never found him. Never will. 

Ain’t gonna try.”

“I Reckon.”
