It was dark and cold. He shivered, then realised he was soaked to the skin.
He felt heavy and laden, his feet bound and his movements restricted.
Suddenly he remembered being tossed overboard by some drunken louts for no other reason than they felt like it.
Anger gave him strength. They would rue the day of their actions.
Self preservation pushed him upwards towards the surface.
His hands reached into the crisp air, unseen and silent.
Their faces were imprinted on his mind and he would have his revenge.
They could only kill him once, and they’d already done that.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
