50 Words Thursday # 76- The ship wreck

Deb Whitman is the host of 50 Words Thursday this week!

The Rules:

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
  • The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
  • Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.

I’m looking forward to what these prompts inspire, so here’s the picture:

76

And the words:

“Sometimes, it’s not your secret to tell.” ― Stephenie Meyer, New Moon

~*~

Tom swam to the shore with all the strength left in his tired arms. He was lucky that he found a floating plank and kept himself afloat during the night. There didn’t seem to be any other survivors from the ill-fated ship. He gathered a few sticks that he found laying around and tried to make a beacon. To let others know that he was here. He longed to tell the story of how their ship sank but sometimes it’s not your secret to tell. He will take it to his grave. Now he just hoped to be rescued.
