In the beginning of the short story " Three Skeleton keys" written by George G. Toudouze, the narrator is working in a lighthouse for 21 weeks with 2 other people. Normally they're isn't many ships that come around their lighthouse because of the sharks and shallow coral reefs, but one evening a pretty dutch ship comes close with no crew aboard. little does they know, rats, big hungry sea rats are aboard the ship and they haven't eaten for awhile, and when they smell meat they get anxious.
"Whats wrong with her crew? Are they all drunk or insane? Can't they see us?
