The Anchor

By Boyd Miles



The Sun dimmed above him as he sank. Dan O'Seay had finally found just what it would take to get the level headed Captain Manz to turn murderous.

Sinking fast tied to the ship's anchor Dan knew that he couldn't hold his breath long enough to make it back up even if the Captain changed his mind. He wondered, watching the sun dim through the bubbles of his last exhale if he would be around to feel the jerk when the chain ran out.

The sun, or Dan went dark.

A dark tale of dark deeds. Concise and foreboding.
