The Young Captain

by Julian Medinger

"Has ever a man been eaten?"

"Of course not. If the whale be that close, they be close enough to strike."

"But those teeth . . ."

"Teeth for chewing squid lad. They did never bite on anything as firm as a man. Watch as I dangle me leg over the side"

"Look, here comes a white one."
