In the expostiton of short story" Three Skeleton Key" written by George G. Toudouze It started out with three men who worked in a lighthouse on an island called Three Skeleton Key. On the break of dawn of of the men saw a ship. When the sun started to rise they went investigate the ship. It was just swaing back and fourth they thought the ship was taugnting them but one wave swept in and the ship crashed! When the ship was on shore the men discoverd that was infested by sea rats. The rats came and chased them up the light house. Luckily they managed to close the door but now they were trapped. Days went by with no food or water and the rats were still coverd the whole building was still covered. It had been a while since the patrol saw the light on so he came to inspect but since the whole building was covered he thought they were dead. But they cam up with and idea to send a signal and he saw it and left to get back up. He came back the next day with three patrol boats and a boat full of meat. The rats smelt the fresh meat and not one rat didnt jump on the cart of meat once the rats were on it they drew it away from the light house and drenched the boat with oil and blew it up. After they were save on eof the men went crazy and had to be sent away. The other one who was badly injured died within a week of being in the hospital. And the narrotor ended up finishing his 22 months of working at the light house.
