Very nicely done! (Although if you will allow me one small quibble, Renee's shackles are either very loose or vanish at some point.)Well, this thread has inspired me! Here as my humble offering is my own little vignette from the voyage! Hope you enjoy!
The inclement sea lurched the vessel sharply, tossing Renee like a sack of flour against the port side. Her bare feet slipped out from under her, squeaking on the soaked timbers of the deck. She tried to grab the taffrail for support, but her manacled hands weren’t fast enough and she landed hard on her backside, winded, feeling a bruise forming around her tailbone. She groaned.
