Fantasy Drabble #261 “Passage”

The Sorcerer climbed above decks and looked out over the glassy face of the ocean. “How long has it been like this?”

“Nearly six hours, no wind at all. We’ve made our devotions, but so far we haven’t been favored. Perhaps you’ve more influence?”

“I’m neither priest nor shaman, Captain, and I know no weather spells. My power will be of no help.”

“As I feared.”

“I could try to call a monster from the deep, to tow us—”

“No! I thank you, but… Kyriletta is a fragile lady. And the wind will blow eventually, sure as the world turns.”
