Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Being Irish descent; its only right that I wish you all a Happy St. Paddys Day; I hope the Guinness is in full flow and you are all celebrating the Six Nations win.  In other good news.  I won my first short story competition today.  Yay!! I’ve shared this story with you before but because I’m excited, I’m going to re-share it with you (how lucky are you).

The theme was ‘outskirts’ and had to be 100 words on the nose (title excluded).  You can find the published story on MorgEn Bailey‘s blog page.

Without further ado…

Freeze-frame

I can still taste the saltiness on the ocean breeze, snapping a polaroid unbeknownst to the boy licking ice cream from his cone on the promenade.

Oh how I love walking barefoot. Sandcastles; sediment squelching through fingertips and toes. The water inviting, it embraces, cooling cheeks from suns warm kiss.

Content I watched days dulcet haze creep towards dusk as shells were pocketed meandering home.

“Dad?”

Interrupted in thought, a whispered smile brushed his lips; capturing the still frame in sepia memory. It was that very moment the shutter called time; the image flickered and faded fizzling to the outskirts.

 

Have a good one all!!
