Author Notes: This was written for the there_n_back Advent Calendar Challenge. Every day, a new prompt was added to the list and I had to use all of the prompts in that day's list: Day 1 - bottle; Day 2 - bottle, wharf, etc. So I had no idea where this was going, other than all 24 entries would tie together into one whole story and each entry would have 100 words per prompt. Because I'm insane.
Prompt - bottle
Pirate Christmas Story
Chapter 1

He pulled at the collar of his coat. It had been a long time since he’d last worn it, but Hal had insisted they dress up for their trip ashore. “So where are we going?”

Hal handed Kyle a bottle of wine, then climbed out of the boat himself. “You’ll see.”
