The Island

Hello from sunny Wales!  It’s been a long time since I could say that.  Seems the rains have eased, fingers crossed.

Another Wednesday, time for another Friday Fictioneers story.  Thanks as usual to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who is in sci-fi mode this week and also to Danny Bowman, for providing the photo prompt.

The Island

The island has been in my family for generations.  It’s home to seabirds and seals, virtually uninhabited most of the year. The crossing can be quite dangerous; I was intrigued by his suggestion that we take the boat across.

‘You OK?’

‘Not really, be glad to land’

‘You didn’t ask why’

‘Thought you’d tell me once we got there’

‘You think you’re going to get there?’


‘Where did you put the papers from Islandhopper?’

‘That was years ago. I’m still not signing’

He made a grab for me as the boat rolled.

The ocean holds lots of secrets

  1. Never trust someone who wants to sell your land…or get his/her hands on it. Good end to bad rubbish!

    Good to see you, Dee. Enjoy the sunshine. We’re getting another bit of snow, but not much. It’s beautiful.



    • Thanks Janet. Thankfully we have not had snow – yet. There is talk of some next week, perhaps, maybe…
      Enjoy your snowy outlook, I’m sure it is beautiful.



  2. Dear Dee.

    I’m pleased to hear that it’s sunny your way.

    Your ending leaves us hanging a bit, but I love it. I can’t help wondering what secrets those could be. Nice one.
