Five sentence fiction: Waves

Lillie McFerrin Writes

“Did you ever see such high waves”, Nadia said out loud, she  was visiting Malta with her parents, the waves fascinated her and they were so noisy, she couldn’t go too close to the shore, she was afraid she’d be drenched by the water the waves were spraying out.

Mom and Dad were having a great time watching the noisy Mediterranean sea  waves and soaking up the gorgeous sun, it was a perfect day to have outdoor picnic.

Mom made arrangement with the hotel chef to prepare a delicious basket of food, the chef’s assistant brought the food basket, Nadia couldn’t wait she dragged her parents to a spot which she had planned ahead of time.

The three spread the sheet they borrowed from the hotel and sat down, while Nadia was busy checking the food, she overheard her father say,”Hi Harry fancy seeing you here, come join us for lunch!”

Nadia was disgusted, she mumbled not him again he is such a show off, the thought that Harry would engage her parents into a conversation enraged her, she wasn’t hungry anymore, she took out a book and began to read, some picnic she said under her breath!

You are at the beach with some friends and/ or family enjoying sun nibbling on some water melon. All of a sudden, within seconds, the weather shifts and hail starts descending from the sky. Write a post about what happens next.

Early morning on a Sunday My family and I planned to go out for a picnic,it was a lovely bright morning the sun was shining, there was a cool breeze blowing, it was as if nature was inviting us to get ready to leave the house , after all we barely have such a pleasant day.

We took votes to see where we should go, the result was in , majority voted for the beach. We packed a food basket with a variety of foods, we sliced the watermelon so we wouldn’t need a knife, I especially am never in favor of carrying a knife. We didn’t forget to take some napkins, eating watermelon slices is healthy but it is messy as well. We took large sheets and towels, to use for our trip.

We reached Sandy beach within an hour. We found the perfect spot, the kids were delighted, there was a lot of pushing and shoving as we were laying the sheets on the sand, it took a few minutes for the young ones to calm down. Once everything was in place we all decided to eat the watermelon first, it is messy to eat, the fact it was sliced we didn’t want to leave the slices in the basket too long.

We hardly picked up our slices of the juicy fruit when we noticed the sky was getting dark, we never gave it another thought and started to eat, I had only taken a bite when I saw a flash of lightning followed by roaring thunder. We were nervous it was unexpected, without wasting another minute I instructed everyone to gather our things, and make a move to get out and hit the road.

We had walked a few metres when suddenly large hailstones started falling from the sky, the kids were scared and so were we. We could not think how to get away fast to avoid the barrage of hailstones. I was glad we carried the sheets and towels, they came in handy to protect us from the onslaught. Slowly and carefully we walked to our car, it seemed as if it took us hours just to walk to get inside the car,the hail didn’t stop so we took refuge in our car and waited for  the weather to change. After an hour  though the weather changed and the sun shone again but we made up our mind to go home where the weather would not ruin our plans to have a great time!
