A 100-word story from long ago:
Water sluiced off her body as she sprang up from under a wave. The next rolling wall of water was translucent green, containing for a breathless moment an arching shadow. A dorsal fin. Her heart recognized the sweet smile.
“Look!” she cried to the others. “It’s my mother! I told you she’d come!”
Their ears were dulled by salt water. Laughter echoed across the waves.
“Scaredy brat! She thought it was a shark!”
“It’s just a dumb dolphin, babe!”
She didn’t care. The wave and its rider were gone. But there was a smile left behind in the sunlit sea.
