flash fiction…55


at the beach, with great care, she set him down.

she turned to spread the towel, and he was gone.

turning back, her heart sank and then exploded into gripping fear.

searching, waves and sand, alone she panicked.

yesterdays storm, created a drop.

he sat below it, using a tin spoon.

she saw it flash.
