Let’s continue on this month with “Spice Pirates,” a short story I’ve been working on.

Rosamaria’s sick brother Basil just wants to be a pirate, so she enlists the help of her friends Origano, Clovio, and Anisa to take him on a pirate adventure. But then the REAL pirates show up….

In this scene, Rosamaria and Origano have taken Basil to find treasure the “pirates” have hidden on a nearby island. Last week,  they found someone else on the island with them.

“Pirates?” said the stranger, holding up his empty hands. “Please, there’s no need for violence; I’m sure this is all just a misunderstanding.”

“Oh, yes, sir,” said Rosamaria. “You see, my brother wants to be a pirate, so my friends and I buried a treasure and arranged for him to come here and find it; we’re not really pirates.”

“Well, then, that makes this much easier. Garlicci, Fennelio, if you would be so kind.”

Two men emerged from the shadows; one held an arquebus and another a long length of rope.

“Pirates!” Basil exclaimed, grinning.
