#FF — O’ahu Resurrection

PHOTO PROMPT © Jan Wayne Fields

Out of breath after barely catching the bus, I looked for a seat. Being a haole, no alohas were found in the faces of the Islanders – except his. Mine said mahalo as I sat.

I told him my divorce was new; that in the end my ex saw me as poke and I saw him as Spam musubi. He laughed and took my hand.

We rented a changing hut at Sunset Beach. Kapu kapu kapu pounded in my ears with his every thrust.

We emerged, sated and staggering.

Please stay. Be part of Ohana,” he said, with talofa.

[100 words]

  1. Dear Lisa,

    Kind of whirlwind talofa, but why not? But…eeeeew Spam has no place wrapped in nori with sushi rice. The thought causes my gorge to rise with the tide. BTW Poke is one of my favorite things. Mahalo for such a delightful story.

            1. Yes. You know it may come to a place where people will stay at home, with a single person like you in the office, coordinating and troubleshooting. It must be nice to just get out of the house for awhile.
