Angels out At Sea –100 word drabble
He falls overboard into the icy choppiness of a darkening sea.
Crashing waves and roaring winds drown his cries for help. He gulps litres of ocean and begins to drown. His finger is broken. He can’t remove his sea-filled boots and soggy clothes.
Angels buoy him up.
At the harbour the skipper finds him gone. Distraught he turns to search the wide, dark, sea.
Angels guide him to his mate.
He smells the diesel, hears the engines’ chug and sees the bright search light. Arms reach down.
Angels give them strength to yank him back aboard to fish another day.
