Pirates and Pies in Polite Society

My second round submission for the NYC Midnight Short Story 2020 competition.

Note: For this round, I was assigned “historical fiction” as my genre, with an eating contest as the subject, and a teenage mother for my character. The word limit for this round was 2000; this clocked in at 1993 words. Again, my comfort zone is science fiction and psychological horror so I’m not certain how this story will hold up. But it was fun to write, and I learned a ton about pirates!
