Photo by K.S. Brooks

You have had this dream before—the long dark hallway, the high ceilings, the columns along the walls. There is an ominous yet wondrous tone to the dream. It always ends when you get to the end of the hallway and find a closed door. Tonight the door is open. What will you find there and what does it mean?

In 250 words or less, tell me a story incorporating the elements in the picture. The 250 word limit will be strictly enforced.

The brig makes for port under full sail. What cargo and passengers does she carry and from whence does she sail? Is the sight of the ship a comfort or a curse to the denizens of the port town?
