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.

  1. The sea doesn’t like to be robbed and exploited, and pays back.That’s a lesson with many layers well delivered. Great story.

    1. tbh, I thought they’d die in the sub. But then yesterday’s prompt came along, and the story decided it wanted to go another way. There’s more to come…
      Thank you as always, Jake 🙂

  2. Definitely stands on its own to my mind, although I’m guessing the previous bits would answer some of the mysteries. I like her sense of nature and questioning herself.

    1. They might answer some, I’m sure, but it’s a work in progress, so I’m glad it works on its own. Thank you for stopping by!


  3. Great feeling here. The sea is a scary element – I share her reluctance to leave dry land too far behind, even if her caution is just for now.
