Finish It! #22

He took a deep breathe. Inhaled and exhaled a couple of times, each time a little bit slower, a little bit longer. He closed his eyes and repeated the breathing. He could feel his heart rate slow down. Slowly he put the mask on and then he emerged into the world he felt so at ease with. He would be one with the ocean once again, diving for minutes without any air. Usually he was down here to enjoy. To become one with this amazing world. This time was different. A lot was at stake. He had to succeed. The consequences would be too huge to handle otherwise.

  1. I read this far into the intro, “He took a deep breathe. Inhaled and exhaled a couple of times, each time a little bit slower, a little bit longer.” When I concluded my story would be about a scuba diver! But then I kept reading and it’s about a scuba diver for everyone. Hmm, now what to do! LOL.

    The prompts that have more content in them tend to flummox me. I get going with an idea and then, wham, it doesn’t quite fit in with the prompt. But, that’s just me. So although I have not submitted to all of the Intros I do have the prompts sitting in draft mode just in case I come up with something later šŸ™‚
