A Beach Find

They were excited about the find for the weathered chains hinted at so many possiblities.

“It’s from a shipwreck.”

“Never. These chains held people who were kidnapped and sold into slavery!”

“They are so cool. See how old they are? The ones you buy in the stores are flimsy in comparison.”

No matter the origin, the chains would bring hours of pleasure to children who thrived in imaginitive play. They did not realise, however, how close some of their play came to reality for the chains had held together people who despaired of the life they were being sold into.

  2. Made the imagination run wild Colline, children would run riot with their imaginations, for me I would have to know where the chain lies on the beach, trade routes, ship wrecks, slave ships, some great scenarios in those old rusted links.
    Regards.
