Blind Man's Bluff

Captain Balhir overlooks the city in ink, tracing the well-worn sheet: from keep to wharf, and back to The Bottle.

Mooncalf monkeys, he snorts derisively, lays a fork on Violin Street, handle keep-wards. The many tines slide Row-ward, like snakes into their holes.

There's a leak, he's told. Find it! Lord Vorondur and Castamir want some new municipal pendants – “Longnecks” indeed!

Crystal clear, what's wanted; he but needs some cookie crumbs to follow. So he'll ensure the lock-up's full: desperate folk'll talk.

Won't be only Longnecks swinging, he smiling muses. Who'll live together can hang together...


Prompt: bottle, wharf, violin, moon, monkey, fork, hole, lock, sheet, pendant, crystal, cookie

Half way to twenty-four...
