Gabriel Garcia Marquez: The Last Voyage of the Ghost Ship

The whole text is only one sentence. It describes the story of a ghost ship that appears to a young boy. He saw a very large ship without light and sound, moving towards sandy beach near the village. The boy saw the ship breaking and sinking into the sea. The boy thought that he had a bad dream in the previous night as he didn’t see any wreckage at the place where the ship broke into pieces. The next year, the boy saw the same ship appearing at the same place and sinking like before. Now he was sure that he wasn’t dreaming. He told his mother about the ship but she didn’t believe him and thought her son became crazy. Then, something happened to his mother.
