January 31: Flash Fiction Challenge – Sea Mist.


January 31, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about sea mist. How does it create an environment for a story? It can set the stage or take the stage. Go where the prompt leads.

It had been a hot day, and we looked forward to the evening BBQ. We lived in a place where you always carried a coat in the back of the car no matter the time of year.

As we sat around after dinner, we saw it roll in. At first, it was a cloud on the hilltops but then we watched it rolling down towards us, and soon we were enveloped.

The temperature quickly dropped, so we grabbed our coats as the damp and cool took over.

The evening sea mist was a natural phenomenon I always marvelled at.

    Nice one. I’ve seen sea-mist roll in like huge billows of smoke, chilling the sunbathers off the sun-kissed beach. Easy to predict. If the day starts hot, by early afternoon the mist will come.

  3. Thankfully it did not bring something more ominous with it… this time.

  4. I can’t imagine living in such a cold climate, Michael. Entertaining read.
