Here we are for another week. Today we’re on board a virtual ferry on our way to Liberty Island. Our hostess for this excursion is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to write an original story with no more than 100 words, not including the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt is a repeat requested by Russell Gayer and supplied by Jan Wayne Fields. Thanks, Jan, and Russell.

THE BLOODY BOAT by P.S. Joshi
Our family decided to take the tour to Liberty and Ellis Islands. My great grandparents on Dad’s side had come to the U.S. by ship to Ellis Island, then New York City.
The ferry was part of the way out in the ocean. The Statue of Liberty was in the distance but getting closer. Then it happened. We came across the boat.
It was a sailboat, and the deck was covered in blood. The Captain radioed “Shark Attack?”. But how did it happen? There were no sharks or bodies. The owner had ties to the underworld.
