Gone wild


Here we are with a new Picture it and Write challenge, courtesy of Ermilia

Elaine frolicked in the waves, warm water lapping against bare legs. Off in the distance she spotted the remains of a plane wreak. She gave brief consideration to a scavenge attempt before dismissing the idea as dangerous. Instead she took a leisurely walk around the gorgeous island, nibbling on wild fruit here and there. By evening she had herself a roaring fire and a collection of edibles to keep her satisfied until she whittled herself a spear for fishing. Contrary to the notion that Elaine should be panicking right about now she was enjoying her new-found freedom; attacking survival with a robustness that was unusual for a 9-5 office gal. And as she drifted off into a peaceful sleep, Elaine fell in love with the starry sky yet again.

The next morning she awoke to the violent sounds of a rescue chopper. She glared down the beach at the search team desecrating her island, tearing vegetation left and right in their urgency. That was when Elaine realised she needed a pointy stick. The ‘rescuers’ needed to be taught a lesson.

  1. I find it interesting how she fell in love with the wild. I wonder how long that would last once food became scarce or loneliness set in. Interesting idea. Thanks for contributing this week to Picture it & write! ๐Ÿ™‚
