Sao Feng’s Treasure : Friday Fictioneers – 28 March 2014

Copyright-John Nixon

“Perfect Josh, hold it still.”

“Pete, you were right!” Sean screamed. “Two mirrored staffs in the mangrove; Jack Sparrow’s map was right; they point there on sea.”

“Sao Feng’s treasure” Josh could barely hold his excitement. “Dive Pete, find what’s below! We have beaten ‘Curse of Calypso’.”

“Yup! All alive and about to be rich”, Pete screamed and ran to take the dive.

After an agonizing wait – Pete came up, Sao Feng’s gold dagger in his fist.

“Sean, where’s Josh?”

“Dunno Pete, my eyes were fixed on the pointer. Josh was behind!” Sean’s voice trembled.

Calypso? Or 2 shares are better than…

  1. The curse of greed, I suspect! But nice that you don’t specify.
    Well told 🙂

  2. I got a bit confused with the characters here, and wondering whether there was a significance in the change from past tense to present tense part-way through. Is it Sean’s voice that should be trembling at the end and not Josh’s? Or am I hopelessly not getting this? It has been known. 🙂

  3. I got the story line and the significance of the last line. But the tense change got me, too. In these spots: “Pete screams and runs to dive” (and what does “to dive” mean?) Maybe “Pete screamed, ran and dove?” Then again here: “Pete comes up” (“came up.”) Where you fooled me was that I thought this might turn out to be a video game. 🙂

  8. Dear Indrajit,

    Strange how the promise of wealth can divide and destroy, isn’t it? Nice illustration of that.

  13. As Captain Jack Sparrow might say with a knowing nod–“Pirate.” Good one–I enjoyed reading it.

  14. Horus, This was a good read until you added that last line, IMO. Trust your readers, my friend. We had already gone there. 😉

    I did, however, thoroughly enjoy this take on the prompt.

    All my best,
