A Close Call(for Friday Fictioneers)

The waves lapped the rocks as the captain walked along the shore. Suddenly three men walked up to him; one of the men handed the captain a poster for a runaway slave, saying, “Excuse me, Captain, one of my slaves ran away and there’s evidence he’s in the area. Have you seen him?”
“No”, the captain replied.
The men showed the captain a warrant and searched his property but found no one. “Well, Captain, just keep an eye out”, they instructed.
The captain breathed a sigh of relief. Tonight he will take Tobi across the lake to Canada.

    1. They say we have more slaves today than at any other time in human history. When it comes to trafficking, human beings rank number three, after drugs and weapons. (Sadly many are sold or exploited by their own family.)
