Becoming a figurehead

Sally had got herself into some strange situations before but this was a new one. It all started innocently enough if you can believe that. She’d been visiting Bournemouth with friends for a birthday celebration. That was how it started. 

Now it would appear she was bound tightly to the front of a boat. She knew that much for sure and as the sea spray splashed her face she suddenly had a chilling recollection from the previous evening of a high stakes game of cards with a mysterious stranger. She’d lost and was now the figurehead of a Chinese titled schooner heading to Beijing. It was cold being a figurehead. She wondered how long the journey was and where her phone was. What was bothering her most, however, was who on earth was going to feed Chairman Meow while she sorted this whole thing out…

All Deino Grey had ever wanted was to travel the world. Her sisters had held her back this far but she’d never left home and needed to get out from under their feet so she set out to do just that. 

Her first thought was to become a singer on a cruise ship as her sisters had told her that she had a lovely singing voice (they were lying for their own nefarious purposes) but she got sacked after her first song aboard the Symphony Of the Seas. The reasons for which were never fully explained. She next tried the profession of fisherwoman but all she could ever catch was flotsam and jetsam. It was most frustrating. 

Eventually, Deino settled on saltiest of seadog professions, piracy. It turns out she just had a natural ability for it so now sails around the world taking what she wants from whomever she likes. So there. 

It’s A4 and made using acrylic, paint pen and pencil. Drop us a line to give her a new home.

Cheers
