The time has finally arrived!!!!! *drum roll*
Please welcome the new story, Seven and a half seas!
The sea is my life and my home. Hi, my name is Donald, Duncan Donald, and I am a famous seamen working on the banks of Prince Edward Island Canada. Although I don't look like a fishermen, due to my Mohawk and multiple facial piercings people don't tend to take me seriously.......except for my beautiful fiancé Courtney Smith. My mom told me that 21 was a young age to be getting married but if I didn't take her as my own soon she would have fallen into the hands of that freak rich scumbag Justin Parker. He was a fine-looking fellow but he totally didn't care about Princess ( which was my pet name for her) he only wanted to inherit her money so his modeling carrerr would take off.
I was currently helping my good friend Geoff bring in his lobster traps.
" thanks for helping me out dude" Geoff said
" no prob man least I could do, I know how hard it is for you and Bridgette right know" I said
" yeah..... with the baby one the way I just couldn't risk bringing her to help me anymore...these lobsters can be-OWWWWWW!"
Geoff held up his hand to reveal a lobster had lacthed onto his hand as he was taking them out of the trap.
"- really dangerous.." Geoff muttered as he banged the lobster against the dock.
Thinking of Bridgette and Geoff's kid on the way I could only stare out onto the horizon of the seemingly gentle vast sea thinking " what would happen to us?" " will we have a kid? maybe kids?" my thoughts about the great things that were about to happen in my life buzzed around my head like angry bees. Staring at the blazing sunset I couldn't stop thinking about her.
" dude?, DUDE!" Geoff called
" huh what?" I said snapped out of my trance
" I said can you measure the last bucket and load the rest of the legal sized lobster onto the dock? Bridgette called and said that she wants me home." Geoff said
" oh, yah sure man' I replied. Grabbing the bucket and a caliper
" thanks bro."
before he left Mr. Smith came up to us, he was supposed to be retiring tomorrow, thank god...don't get me wrong he's a nice guy....but he's a little......odd.....
He was a short old man with a yellow rain jacket and matching boots with a gray beard and hair sticking out of his bright-yellow rain hat.
" hello boys I brought you a pie!" he said as he held out his old liver spotted hands to give us the pie.
" uh, thanks..." I said
" what flavor?" Geoff asked getting his things together
" pie flavor..." he said as he stared at us blankly and unblinking.
Both me and Geoff just chuckled lightly....and awkwardly....
He then laughed manically and dryly into the oncoming evening mist and was gone.
" okay......Well! See you bro.' Geoff said as he was basically running away
when I was done with the last of the lobsters I went into the main office to clock out, and the receptionist at the desk looked at me skeptically.
" you're working late" she said
she was about my age, her name was Gwen and, like me, she so didn't look like she would be working anywhere near docks. She had blue high-lights in her black hair and wore like all back clothing, fish nets, shirts, yadda, yadda, yadda.
" yah I know I was helping Geoff." I said walking in.
" isn't Courtney wondering where you are?" she asked.
" I told I would probably be back late because I was helping Geoff, you know how busy he is with Bridgette pregnant and all." I said.
" well you get home safe and remember you're going to go out to the Maclean islands next week to map the new area." she said
mapping and sailing was my job and I had gotten a jig with national geographic to do some mapping around the islands for a major paycheck. Mapping for me was a piece of cake but the catch was the waters around these islands are very dangerous and many people's boats have been damaged or lost trying to sail through there but I was up to it.
" yah, I know." I said grabbing my coat and walking out.
" but before I leave...." I dropped the pie on the front table.
" pie for you." I said as I started to walk out the door
" what flavor is it?" she asked looking it over.
" pie flavor!" I yelled over my shoulder.
I wasn't sure if I should eat the pie, but I didn't want to waste pie....so.......
"OWEN!" I called to my assistant Owen who was filling in for my boyfriend while he was recovering from a boating accident. Owen was a nice guy, but he weighed 296 pounds and would eat anything!
" what is it boss?" he asked running up to the desk accidently knocking a plant pot over.
" sorry.......: he said
" Owen, pie for you.." I lied, hey! Duncan probably lied to me! He ate the entire this in one bite!
" BELCH! Mmmmmm. Pie flavor!" Owen said
I was thinking to myself as I was driving home that I probably should tell Courtney about the mapping trip. I didn't at first because I didn't want to worry her, she was terrified for me every time I went out on long trips anyways. I would only be gone for a week and we were getting married in three. I was leaving next Tuesday which was the day after tomorrow so I had to tell her tonight.
I pulled into her drive way, she had a small Victorian style house that we lived in together her parents bought it for her to live in independently.
" Courtney! I'm home!" I called out but to no answer.
" Courtney! Princess!" I tried again she didn't answer, I started to panic. I ran through the house when I couldn't find her I ran outside were I saw......
That's all for now! Review and I'll update! I probably won't get my other story up until later this week, but I'll put it up before I update again! I'll try to get it up as soon as possible, maybe Friday, because this weekend I have two all day swim meets! Ugh! Maybe my mom will bring her computer and I'll update on Saturday! I don't know REVIEW!
