Friday Fictioneers: Love

Her mother told her to stay away from the water. She was not to go near it, not even get in a bathtub.

As an adult, she heard the Calling.



Just her toes, she’d only put her toes in. Soon she was standing knee deep. She was unable to resist the urge; she dove in.

The sensation, the glory, the freedom of spirit. For the first time in her life she felt alive.

She suddenly understood all her mother gave up to be with her father, such love.

Eventually, she found the love of her life and never returned to land.
