Underwater – Freestyle Writing Challenge

Some time ago I was nominated to participate in the Freestyle Writing Challenge by Rawls E. Needing to write something, but being lost for words at first, I decided to take it up today. And hey, under pressure I sure manage to write something. (The rules, my own prompt and my nominees will be at the bottom of the post).


The prom I was given:

You are going to live under the sea now. You have left your “land dwelling” life and world behind. Where are you? What is your underwater dwelling like? Are there other humanoid races, such as mermaids or something else, in this undersea realm?


Strangely it is easy not to breath anymore. I have developed a fish like skin and lifestyle. But I am not a mermaid, no those are far more beautiful creatures than we. I have taken to sitting on a nice smooth rock, here I can be caressed by the rays of the sun, because sometimes the rays of the sun do pierce the surface of the sea. Further down in the trench there is my little cave, where I can hide, far away from the sharks and other beings. My cave mate at the moment is a water bear. Like myself being a water human, he has fled the dry lands and develop a capacity to live beneath the ocean. We do get along fine, we both have been hunted do to our differences. What bear likes to talk to humans? And what huan likes to spend all day in the water?

You are probably wondering how I ended up here, you know my time is limited. Still I will try to tell you, dear diver. I have been an avid swimmer for many years, my mother had a water birth, so I left the womb and glided gently into water. Swimming lessons

J is for Jump – A to Z Challenge April 2015

“Just go ahead and do it already!” Someone barked from behind Josephine. She looked around into a frog like face. “Erm,” she stammered looking scared with her hands gripping the railing as if her life was at risk, “you go ahead”. The unfriendly boy passed looking at her as if she was the biggest looser. All of his friends followed, sniggering at her. One by … Continue reading J is for Jump – A to Z Challenge April 2015
