#23 – Seasick

Posted on Updated on

Sea Clem Onojeghuo

“Oh!  Isn’t it beautiful?”  Anna squeezed her husband’s hand, her golden hair whipping in the sea breeze as the cruise liner rocked gently through the Pacific blue.  The sun was a perfect orb against the glimmering horizon.  Blue met blue, the clean salt air filling the newly-wed’s lungs and setting her spirit soaring.  She shivered as a drop of liquid brushed her cheek.  “We’d better get in – it’s starting to rain.”

Ten year old Kevin wasn’t having a good time on the deck above.  Leaning over the edge, he retched again, wiping the edge of his green, vomit-stained mouth.
