Friday Fictioneers: In Too Deep

We’re in deep. Too deep.

All was calm. All was bright…as it could be. Considering the circumstances.

We took it hour by hour. Then day by day.

We shoulda known the calm would only last so long.

High tide, low tide. The winds of change.

Then storm clouds formed on the horizon.

There’s no good outcome. We’ll tread water until it levels off.

How did you keep afloat?

We’ll do what we can. And hopefully walk away, without any more wounds.

We’re already scarred forever.

No one wins after something like this. Except maybe the vultures.

    • Hi, ahtdoucette! Thanks for reading & your comment. It’s a little of both; you could call it “realistic fiction” as the origin is real but the story itself is not. Glad it made you wonder, though! 🙂
