55 - Pirate

I bided me time, me hearties, waiting for me captors to make a wrong move. I spied an opportunity when the dirty bilge rats let me out for what they called a picnic. I escaped while their afts were turned. What wailing when the lubbers couldn't find me! Avast, I have my freedom once again!













About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

@Alice: Sadly, this was a toy left abandoned at a rest stop on a West Texas road between Alpine and Big Bend. I propped it up in a prominent place in the hope that the travelers would pass back through and the kids would retrieve it.

I had fun making it a happy story instead of thinking about the sad little kid who forgot a favorite toy at a rest stop.
