For this weeks Flash!Friday our themes were based on Moby Dick. The themes I chose were a mighty whale and the cost of obsession. I kind of used the optional photo prompt this week:
Son of a beach
Here I am, the last gasps escaping me, sand in one eye and sky in the other. I just want one last glance at my true love.
I hear his voice on the breeze, “She’s a beauty. Didn’t even need the harpoon, she chased me right onto the beach.”
He’s here! I wonder if he will notice me?
“She’s massive! Wonder why she beached?”
I knew I should have lost some weight. Why do those giant squid have to taste so good?
I can feel him, he’s climbing me. This is it! My first kiss. Who cares if it’s with a human. I see his silhouette and I know that he’s here to rescue me.
I don’t see the spear until it’s too late.
