Hello everyone. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Today I am going to —
I was interrupted by a scuttling noise.
It was the lobster I caught over the summer. I was about to grab him but then I remembered what happened last time.
“You again?” I said.
“Arrr, ’tis me alright,” he replied. “I don’t believe we were properly introduced last time matey. The name is Claudius Cavendish III , but you can call me Captain Claude for short.”
“Ajdin Adilovic,” I said, shaking his claw. “And don’t worry, I’ve lost my appetite for lobster since last time. What can I do for you?”
“I am requesting assistance for my ship. She seemed to have a rough encounter with the rocks by the shore and I need some help putting her back together. Would ya help me, kind lad?”
“I’ve never built a ship before,” I said. “I’m not sure if I can do it.”
“Arrr!” he snapped. “Pirates don’t give up! C’mon, don’t you want to go on a treasure hunt?”
I carefully picked up a piece of the ship, then I started fitting the pieces together.
I built a sail. I was really getting into it now.
“Arrr, that’s it matey!” Captain Claude said excitedly.
“You’re a natural at this lad!” he said. “How about testing your sea legs with me after this?”
Soon after, the ship was done.
“Not yet,” Captain Claude said. “She needs a new lick of paint.”
“And finally, give her a new name,” he said.
I thought for a moment. “How about…the HONEY RAIDER!”
“What a beauty,” Captain Claude said. “Now every pirate needs a good ship, but also a good crew.”
Where was I going to find a good pirate crew?
