The Unexpected


S
he felt thirsty and the salty wind didn’t do any good to her.  Yet she waited. She waited for him to return triumphantly. She wanted him to show the fishes he had got. She wanted to hug him until she pukes due to the smell of fish and salt.

Oh! She wanted him to come back… To fight… To love…

An unexpected turbulence had occurred in the ocean a couple of days before and her love has not returned back yet.

She touched the little swell on her tummy.
She wiped off the tears and waited hopefully…

  7. The little swell in her tummy makes me hope for her. What to hope, I am still not sure of.
