    The Baron took no heed of the dog’s bark. He’d been too engrossed with the barque that had run aground on a barren strip of land in Carlingheugh Bay.

    Its masts looked blood red but, when he looked through his glass, he saw what appeared to be great clots of chili dripping from them. Idly, he let his gaze roam along the deck. He gasped when he saw the ax.

    A chill accompanied his realization of the acts that must have occurred aboard that old ship.

    He’d known it would happen. It would never do for the incumbent Baron of Ax to marry a barren woman. Should he heed the advice of the Elders? He knew that the barque was stocked with enough supplies for a month, inclusive of chili and Pirangi Cashew tree bark, which, they say, act upon infertility. A chill ran up and down his spine. Decisions, decisions.
