This week for the Writing Thursday feature, I am presenting an original scene. I hope you enjoy my latest creative work found below. Tomorrow for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the young adult fantasy novel, Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Next week for the Writing Thursday feature, I am presenting a new original scene. Until then keep creating; Nerd out!

Premise: an encounter at sea

It had been a fortnight since we had set sail. I had only gotten a smidgen of sleep since. We had been boarded and the commodore presented an indictment for one of the crew members. Apparently, John had abandoned his post in the cavalry and tried to hide aboard our boat from being sentenced for his crime. I could see the helix seal on the indictment, he was doomed if we handed him over. Christine had offered to serve everyone some tea before they departed with the prisoner. I found it to be an odd offer until I noticed the back of her spoon. It was then that I remembered the late-night lessons in the steeple. She had taught me all about different herbs in case I ever found myself in a sticky situation. She had crushed wisteria seeds into the tea. She had come up with a plan to keep from handing John over.
