Pirate Peril

Sequel to Winter Crisis. I wrote this around 6 months ago, before I knew about this website, but enjoy all the same! Sorry for the current absence of a cover, I'll have one soon, as it is handrawn. And I'll also find the blurb to add.
We join Lydia on her second adventure, as she sets out on the deep when chaos hits home. Can she survive the raging waters?


1. Dream Come True

Hardy was way past the cost limit at every shop. The company man was enormously rich and his three children were spoilt a great lot. All they did was work, work, work! That is, since he put his foot down. Everything they got was cheap. The children’s father never worked, they had no mother as the father would do no work and the mother left. She wanted to take their kids with her but he would not allow it.

Jason Hardy didn’t think of anyone else but himself, not even his children!

But that is another story…

“I’ll be back soon.” Lydia’s father assured her. Lydia’s new found father was setting off for an archaeological dig in Egypt. Egypt was a long way from New Zealand that meant an exhausting ride over an incredibly vast ocean! He boarded the ‘USS 54’, waved Lydia goodbye then the boat left the harbour. Lydia watched ‘til the boat and her father were no more than a mere dot among the rising sun. She felt a jolt within her stomach as her hand drifted slowly back to her side. “I’ll miss you too…Dad.” Murmured Lydia. She then retreated to the orchard set upon the cliffs before her. Apples shone like sunrays from the newly risen sun. This was a dream! Well, at least that’s what Lydia thought, she couldn’t want anything more! Finding no reason to stay forever staring into space, she headed inside. The maid came rushing up to her at once. “Miss Lydia, what will you have for breakfast?” She asked. “Nothing,” Lydia Mumbled “Yet.” “You must!” Exclaimed the maid. Lydia trudged off up the stairs. “This generation.” The maid muttered under her breath.

Meanwhile, Lydia was flitting through shelves of books in the cottage library. The room was as wide as the garden beyond. Before her she saw encyclopaedias, journals, and map books.
