Trifecta Writing Challenge: Jane Eyre

The two ships becalmed on a torpid sea, I believed to be marine phantoms. The fiend pinning down the thief’s pack behind him, I passed over quickly: it was an object of terror.”

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

I haven’t entered a  writing challenge before and I decided to do so.The 33 words I’ve chosen are from the first chapter of the book “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte. Hope you like it!
