Introduction: The Golden Statue
“Are you sure the statue is safe?” the Duke was visibly agitated. The sight of those dark, large clouds was eloquent enough about the incoming future of the ship. “Don’t worry, Crat, there’s no problem in this ship and if something happens, nothing we can’t solve.” “Please address me correctly, Captain.” “Aye, aye.” The waters were calm and the wind quite sedated for what the sky showed. In fact, it was that disparity in behaviour that unsettled even the most veteran sailors.
The ship advanced towards the storm like a condemned to the scaffold. With its dragging of its feet the axe loomed nearer to the neck and the moods started to reflect it. “I’ll go below deck and check on the statue.” “It’s safer on deck, Duck, you won’t be able to swim if water comes in.” the Captain smirked. “Please, Captain, do refrain from mocking me in this situation.” “Relax, we’ve got this.” quipped a sailor in charge of the cannons. His constant grinning, especially under the heavy sky, did no good to the Duke’s nerves.
They were now in the middle of the cloud formation and the storm ought to unchain its fury at any moment. However, as the ship went beyond the centre the peace of the weather broke the last string of restraint in the Duke. He simply rushed below deck, reached his prized statue and started to check and even uncover sections to see the golden surface. The Captain heard the screams with a bit of apprehension, even the sailors were shaken by the desperation at their core. “Duke?” called the Captain but there was no answer.
Captain and a few sailors, well armed just in case, went to search for the Duke. They found his body, chopped in pieces and perhaps not complete before the bloodied, golden statue. For the rest of the trip the statue was locked into the darkest area of the cargo hold and no one went to check on it. When the ship arrived at port, sailors went to put it out but they didn’t find it. There was an investigation and even accusations of theft but nothing was proven, except that the Captain never agreed to transport another golden statue from the desert.
