Poor FrogClumsily landing in the community’s dump in front of a frog Annette gets a good dose of her protein from swallowing a few crusty and crunchy maggots.
Annette slowly stubbles to get up as she reaches for the safety transport necklace and tightens it to make sure it won’t slip off again. She checks her surroundings, noticing three huge ships docked in the harbor. Curiosity gets to the best of us; Annette pulls up her cloak hood and heads for the boat docked in the middle.
She runs up, occasionally hiding behind crates stacked up ready to bore the ship. Annette glanced over and detected Sneaking on bored of the ship was not difficult the men in charge of guarding the boat were off napping against the cargo set to soon be loaded on the boat. Annette wasn’t the only stowaway on the ship. A women who appeared to be pregnant was also sneaking a bored the vessel. Her long curly blond hair was bunched up inside the hood of her cloak as well. She steadily made her way up the doc in plain sight. One of the crew members on the boat dropped his soggy mildew mop and ran at her with pure joy on his face. The man exclaimed, “Elizabeth!”
Elizabeth hushed him with her hand,
“Yes, yes I’m here and I plan to travel with you.”
His face twisted up, “No I can’t allow that. It’s too dangerous for you and the baby.”
“I didn’t travel all the way here to here you say no.” she starts stepping forward inviting herself to explore the ship.
The man chucked a bit, “That’s my wife, the determined women that never backs down from what she wants. But Christopher Columbus doesn’t let women abroad his beloved Mayflower.
“Then I’ll hop around one of the other ships. They are all going to India anyway.”
He smiled; he knew there was no way to convince her out of coming, “No, if you’re going to come with, you’re going to be under my protection.”
He kissed her softy on the check. She smiled back at him pulling him into a gentle hug.
Annette made fake gagging sounds and moved on to the lower cabins on the ship. Finding a safe spot for her to hide until the ship sails off in the morning.
