An extract from the YA fantasy e-book "Andariasmeni, the buildings and her friends"

The sailors (an extract from a YA surreal fantasy novel) Still-courageous was startled, she was dizzy. She closed her eyes and travelled back, way back. In one of her journeys she found herself on a ship. On a different ship. Different from any other ship. She found herself on its deck. Like she had landed there suddenly. In the middle of the deck. The sailors were smiling. Still-courageous' eyes got wider. What kind of sailors were they? Humans mixed up with animals. She saw a big zebra who was walking on two feet wearing a red suit with blue trimmings. “I am the valet” it said to her pretty seriously. “Perhaps I am also the butler. I am not really sure about what I do here. We discuss it sometimes with the other sailors and our captain but we always disagree. Each of us has a different point of view, so we don't come to a conclusion. Well, to be honest, we drink often and we end up drunk without getting to a conclusion. Still, we have such fun!” He offered her a glass of “gold'n'cinnamon”. He explained to her that it contained cinnamon with liquid gold, the juice of the golden tree, which they had discovered in one of their trips. Still-courageous drank it, although she hesitated. It was quite tasty, she would easily drink another. Then she observed the rest of the crew. A giraffe was looking far away with a pair of binoculars. The giraffe told her that she was watching the ocean… “You never know what might appear. A giant leviathan for example or a pirate ship. However, pirate ships aren't so intimidating, pirates can be hilarious at times. I have to continue with my assignment now, I must be fully focused.” Still-courageous walked along and saw two sailors with human appearance playing with dice.
