For Your Reading Pleasure

The fog crept slowly up the bank, barely stirring the sparsely growing grass lings. A splash came from within the fog and then the grinding of rocks as a boat’s hull sliced through the water and landed on the beach. Quietly, men began to pile out of the boat, their soft boots and quick movements hardly making any noise as they crept up the shore and crept on their hands and knees out onto the grass.

A dimly lit lantern, the fire inside just a small weak speck, emerged from the back of the boat, carried by a black-haired man. He watched the other men treading onto the forest floor then turned to face the man who had remained next to him. “I’ll stay here, just a ways off from the beach. When you get back, give me the signal.”

The man next to him nodded and then followed his comrades into the forest. The man on the boat extinguished the flame then pushed the boat away from shore and out into the fog covered water with barely an outline visible as he disappeared.
