I don’t believe in ghosts, but I do understand being afraid. When I was younger, I happily scared myself silly pretending there were monsters, goblins, and ghosts in my bedroom. But after I became a teenager and stopped thinking about spooky creatures until this one terrifying fishing trip…
My name is Timmy, I had been working on fishing boats since I was small. My friends Captain Rick, Mike, Kurt, and I were going to spend a few days on the ocean catching rockfish to sell. Little did we know, we were heading for the strangest encounter of our lives!
