Kristian is the host of this week’s 50 Word Thursday.  Kristian alternates Thursdays with Teresa. Together they make a dynamic duo in giving prompts that inspire first class fiction. If you like writing short fiction, please consider writing some for this prompt!

The rules
1 Completed piece must be in multiples of 50 words – maximum of 250 words. Anything is acceptable – poetry, story, anecdote.
2 There will be a photo and a random phrase that I will take from the current book I am reading – you can use either or both
3 Please pingback and tag 50 word Thursday, so I can do a summary.

Kristian says to write to the photo (the writing photo is not included here but is at Kristian’s link) or this phrase:

Through April, May and into June there was no word of John, Ross, Giles and the others.

–Taken from Outback Heroes by Evan McHugh

So, without further ado, I offer the following story:

My classmates and I were given the first bit of April off from classes for Spring Break. I decided to spend the holiday in Florida with a group of my girlfriends, while our boyfriends decided to take a catamaran adventure, leaving from Key West.

One of the conditions of the adventure was that no electronic devices were permitted, as it was felt they would spoil the purity of the experience. That morning, we said goodbye at the dock with many hugs and kisses.

Through April, May and into June there was no word of John, Ross, Giles and the others.

    1. Yes it is a challenge, Kristian. The last 2 I went to the limit of 250 and putting that ability into the challenge is appreciated. This week, I wanted to see if I could write one in less. We don’t know what happened to those young guys, do we? 😉
