Eternal Service

“I’ve been to many a museum. Wander through historical vessels and planes. Sat in tanks and even ridden in some of them. I often wander what those who lived and worked in and with them would think if they could see me touching their pride and joy. Maybe they could still see me … “

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompts:
Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word story based on the Photo Prompt image by Anne Higa

Eternal Service

They gawk at me daily, although none really see me.

“Look at the water. The purple lighting’s eerie. Imagine being aboard when the boat sank,” said a woman.

“Must have been terrifying,” remarked another.

I didn’t have to imagine. The boat sank with me aboard. Torpedoes destroyed the hull. Trapped in the engine room; I drowned. I loved floating about the wreck with the fish. Then they yanked the ship from the ocean. Placed it here; making me a sideshow freak.

Grabbing the bucket, I banged it against the barred door.

“Argh! What was that!” everyone screamed.

“Me! I’m just getting started!”

The End
