Friday 55 Flash Fiction #129 The Sea....

Nothing but sea for ever.

Turquoise, with occasional frothy splashes of white.

No distinction between where it ends and the sky starts.

Sun beating down relentlessly, reflecting on the swell.

Just the odd seagull to break the monotony, and intermittent rollers.

"I hope they realise soon that they left without me" thought the scuba diver.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Valerie said...

As usual there was the unexpected... I bet the scuba diver thought the same...

MorningAJ said...

Oh dear! I'd like to think that could never happen but you just never know do you? Excellent twist in the tale this week!

I went all nostalgic.

Surely they will come back to get their scuba instuctor. Number one rule in scuba diving...Don't forget the instructor!

Such a good story and a great twist in the end.

I know it has happened Morning AJ - how terrifying is that?

Lucky you Scots Lass but don't go scuba diving! ;)

Cheers Clean&Crazy. I told you we have the same taste. ;)

Too far from land Brian!

Especially when the sharks start circling eh Dumdad? :0

Is that what happens in 'Open Water' Ron, I've not seen it? Anyway glad you enjoyed it.

Ah but he's not the instructor Pam, just one of the divers - hope they miss him!
