The Fisherman’s Tale – Mondays Finish the Story

Finish the story begins with: “Few knew about the castle hidden inside the island.”
I gasp as the fisherman was telling me about his personal adventure in the island. He said he was fishing one day when for no reason whatsoever, he saw the island and thought he could rest for a while. To his surprise, he saw the castle hidden in the island. He climbed up and knocked at the door. A scurrilous man, more like a beast answered it. The fisherman apologised for disturbing him, but the man welcomed him and asked him to stay. They drank beer which the man fermented himself. They talked for hours. But when the fisherman returned to the island the next day, there was no castle anymore, and so was the man.

    This actually reminds me of the ghost in The Polar Express. It’s so eerie! It makes of wonder if you imagined the whole thing!

    I like the ghosty, supernatural feel to the story. That sort of thing really appeals to me.

    It is a true spooky tale of the boarder between our world and the afterworld.
