Time Unknown

 

I have been here for 4 weeks, 28 days, 672 hours and 40320 seconds. My nerves are in tatters; I'm constantly on my guard. You know why? Because I'm a stowaway...

I am on the run from the law, and what better place to hide from them than on a ship that they are scared of. No one would come near the Queen Ann; the stories of terror surrounding her are enough to kill you with fear. For this is a pirate ship. A ship filled with the low life's of society. This all sounds brave but in reality I am scared and hiding from the pirates, if they found me they would kill me with one swift movement of their cutlasses. Like a Preying Mantis going in for the kill.

I listen out for footsteps coming to my hiding place like a cat. A cat with a hangover. I can't hear anything properly over the deafening roar of the cannons and innocent bypasses screaming with fear, when a rare moment of silence presents itself the silence is filled with drinking songs and roars of laughter. There is now a rare moment of silence, it makes me feel uneasy. You would probably say everyone was asleep but I know that this is a ship that never sleeps...
