Flash Fridays – February 27th

For this weeks Flash! Friday we had to incorporate Man vs Nature into a story about the following prompt, which I chose to interpret rather literally!:

DUMPED

“Captain, we have a problem…”
Captain Williams stared intently at his phone, “Quiet man, I’m handling a delicate situation here.”
“But sir…”
“Just deal with it!”
“Ok sir, as you wish.”

Williams re-read the last text and winced. He carefully typed out his reply…
It’s not you, it’s me. I just need some space.
Moments later there was a ping, which was such a delicate sound for such a violent reply.
YOU DARE TO DUMP ME!!! YOU WANT SPACE, YOU SHALL HAVE IT!

Wow. How did he always end up with the crazy ones? She’d gone from earth loving hippie to bunny boiler in less than a week. That had to be a new record.

The boat rocked violently. The crew burst into sudden activity. He ignored them.
I’m thinking of you. I don’t want you to feel deserted, I’m away for months at a time.
YOU ARE THE ONE THAT SHALL FEEL DESERTED!

There was an almighty crash, forcing Williams to look up. He shouted, “Can’t you handle a simple departure?”
His men pointed out the window. Endless blue had been replaced with endless yellow. The silence was broken by a ping.
ENJOY THE WALK HOME! P.S. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MESS WITH MOTHER NATURE 😉
