Homeward

Time she couldn’t calculate and countries no-one under this sky had ever mapped behind her, Sylvie now only saw sea voyage between herself and home. It felt odd to again be negotiating with someone who spoke Seafarer tongue natively.

“Ship-mages usually have a better handle of wind than ‘hardly at all’.”

“I’m very good with wood, in case your ship has patched leaks you’d like properly fixed. And I can keep water clean, or pull the salt from seawater.”

The captain gave her a long look. “If we get no better offer by tomorrow, you’ve got your passage.”

I'm attempting the April A to Z challenge, with fiction with at most 100 words. "H is for Homeward" came from Lyn Thorne-Alder.

If you have prompts for later in the alphabet, please give them to me.

Hi alocsin, If you purchase a present card instantly from
a shop or retailer you can have any amount positioned on it.
I normally get reward cards for birthday items with their age as
the quantity. Linda, these are all artistic gift concepts.
I need to get my head out of the writers' field and into ideas family members can touch and maintain!

Nice piece of flash. Just stopping in from A to Z

Thank you. :)

I do hope she will make it, I strongly beleive in her! And honestly, there won't be any more convincing offers than hers, if you ask me...
What a great format for this A to Z, very challenging. I will keep following your stories.

Thanks for your personal marvelous posting!
I truly enjoyed reading it, you happen to be a
great author.I will be sure to bookmark your blog and
definitely will come back later in life. I want to encourage yourself to continue your great
posts, have a nice evening!

My partner and I stumbled over here by a different web page and thought
I may as well check things out. I like what I see so now i'm following you.
Look forward to finding out about your web page yet again.

Thank you!
I like writing to prompts, so as long as people come up with at least one for each letter, I think it'll work out. :)
