Silent Witness



Opening Lines:
As I sit alone, gazing out at the dark murderous night I am at my most vulnerable. I ramble, allowing the nib of my pen to scratch unchecked across the parchment, the wet ink glistening under the flickering light of the candle. My stomach churns, the endless pitching and rolling of the ship throwing its contents into my throat as we begin to leave England behind us; it’s bleak coastline harrowing under the stark moonlight.
