Crimson’s Creative Challenge #97 – The Boy Fishing.

“You’ve heard of the fool on the hill,” said Crisp looking down on the boy fishing in the sunset, “well, this is the fool on the lake.”

“You’re being a bit harsh, aren’t you?” I questioned.

“He’ll never catch anything out there, the water is too quiet,” answered Crisp, “everyone knows quiet water means the fish are asleep.”

“I think that’s a load of nonsense.”

“Well, watch and see if he does catch anything.”

 So I did, and he didn’t.

I wondered at that moment if I could bottle this quiet water and sprinkle it over a sleeping Crisp, a quiet day with her could be something of an asset.

Suddenly she jolted me from my reverie.

“Dream on,” she said, “I know what you are thinking.”
