#FridayFictioneers – Location, Location, Location


With effort, Carlos relaxed a white knuckled grip on the railing and debarked on shaky legs.  He resisted the urge to kiss the solid deck-boards beneath his feet.

One look around, and his nausea doubled.  He had bought this.  This?  “Location, location, location,” he heard his agent chirp in the back of his mind.

Easing down to sit on the dock, he breathed.  Breathed in clean ocean air.  Waves sang in the distance among a chorus of birds that soared high overhead.  Mountains framed the distant horizon.

Things began to take shape in his mind.  Location, location, location.

#FridayFictioneers is a weekly blog link up hosted by Rochelle over at RochelleWisoff.com. You should check out her sight and perhaps try your hand at writing a 100 word story.

Good luck!

  1. Well, Kurt. I feel a sort of similarity between our takes on this week’s prompt. I’m from Sydney, Australia and I looked at the prompt and couldn’t plac it and did a Google search…Guatamala. That was right out of my league and I did quite a bit of reading before I started writing. Mine ended up being a teleporting accident.
    Anyway, I liked this and thought it captured that OMG feeling when you think you’ve bought a dud and been ripped off. Well done.
    Just one question. Did you mean to say “debarked on shaky legs”? Or, disembarked? I have three dogs and a neighbour with a dog which never stops barking, not that I believe a dog should be debarked.
    Best wishes,

    1. Lol, thanks Rowena. When I googled “getting off a ship” two terms came up. They were debarked and disembarked. I thought I had heard the former before, so I went with it.

      As for the dog, I can feel your pain. Our own dog sometimes takes to barking for what seems like no reason, making debarking sound like a good idea.

      Have a great week!
