A Walk by the Sea

The Daily Post publishes a one-word daily prompt for everyone to write about. The word for today is Branch. Some scenes may not be suitable for very young readers. Mention of any real person or event is not intentional and is purely by coincidence.

I remember that Saturday afternoon when I packed my bags and promised never to return home. Here I am, back at that seaside town.


I hate the sea. I don’t understand its appeal. However, I like the setting sun. I like how light scatters across the sky, especially during cloudy afternoons like now.

Here I am though, by the sea. No matter how much I hate it.

It beckons me to come closer. Closer. And closer still.
