Austin’s untimely plight for closure.

I've drifted upon these azure waters for three long days. The boating accident was horrific.

Surviving on raw seaweed is detrimental. The saltiness has already induced the death throes of osmosis.

Hallucinations ------ delude.

My only companion is a curious dolphin I named, Fearless. He visits me often and can sense the distress I hemorrhage.

Today, he brought me a gift; the gold necklace I lost in deep water. He succeeds in causing a smile.

Life hangs, as the countdown to becoming an unsolved mystery has begun. My family knows I love them… my ghost will vacate this shell... soon.


Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy another micro fiction below if you like.

    Fearless is a great name for that dolphin. Maybe a future recurring character? Helpful and mischievous ocean spirit?
