The Jailer finished his stew supper, his pasty face illuminated by the filtered glow of the fading fire’s embers.
Many would cringe at the slightest noise in this place of cold and dank darkness, but his longanimity for his passion held him in good stead.
Few knew of his afflatus for art, and none realised that the exotic painting of a crescent moon in an emerald sky hanging in the Squire’s banquet hall had been his creation.
As he balanced his bulk on the window ledge overlooking the prison turrets, he listened for the familiar patter of rodent feet, brush in hand.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
