#Flash Fiction Friday: Captain Josie and The Whale

Here’s my flash fiction for Madison Woods’ weekly Flash Fiction Friday. Thanks again, Madison, for a great photo prompt. You should try it, readers. You’ll be hooked!

This is an excerpt from my short story, “Captain Josie and the Whale.” The short story is available on Smashwords. To purchase, go to my Smashwords page on this blog.

When twilight next comes, watch.  Where the edge of the earth touches the sky, look carefully. There you’ll see Captain Josie and her whale, William, swimming together.
As the light of day dims, they dive into the sea.  Though the orange-red glow of their love prevents anyone from looking too closely, if you could look, you’d see Josie hold tight to William as they dip below the horizon, and kiss the earth goodnight.
