A Walk in the Park

I hope my Friday Fictioneers story will work on its own, but you might want to read the two previous instalments of the Salvage Series for context.

A Walk in the Park

Tina comes to the park because she doesn’t want to hear the sea. She thought if you respected it, it’d respect you back. The sea used to be home. But when they climbed out of the sub, barely alive, she was set adrift without a compass.

She watches dew pearl off a leaf. Maybe she should retrain as a landscape gardener. She loves fresh air. How could she forget that? Was the accident the sea’s way of telling her that raiding wrecks for treasure is not respecting the sea?

Time to step ashore. Maybe not for good. But for now.
