Guido grappled with the teakwood wheel. The rest of the crew were below deck, sheltering from nature’s bombardment. Lightning crackled in the midnight air, narrowly missing the bobbing boat, but this was of little concern to Guido when he spied what was approaching over the crest of a wave.

I wonder what was coming his way…Poor Guido 😦
What do you think was over the crest of the wave?
The attacking ship of the enemy fleet, Guido has been trying to lose during the storm…Was I right?
There is no “right” answer, I was more interested to see if people imagined something positive or negative – was predicting the latter as the storm implies danger.
It is harder to imagine something positive during a storm…I am going to give it a try 🙂
