Hump Day Kick Start – Sailor’s Kiss Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

Happy summer, y’all.

Who’s hitting the beach? You know this salty wench will be. Anyone hoping to see a pirate or a mermaid? Find buried treasure? Catch a killer wave or a crispy burn?

Tell me about today’s prompt. Sure, she could be a siren about to kiss the life from a hapless sailor, dragging him to the bottom. Or maybe she is a selkie saying a sad goodbye to her Scotsman. Could they be young lovers frolicking in the calm surf? Does danger lurk beneath the surface? A large shark, perhaps? *shutters as the tell-tale music to Jaws plays*

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. “Hey Sailor! Lookin’ for a good time?” He watched the drops of water glisten over her hair. He really wanted a good time but…there really wasn’t time. Not today, maybe, but…
    “No, I have to be off at this moment on urgent business.”
    “Surely you must have time for someone like me,” she smiled, droplets on her lips.
    “Unfortunately, no. Perhaps at some other time. What man wouldn’t want the flip of a mermaid’s tail?” He gave her a sorrowful smile of his own.
    “MERMAID?!” Her voice rose to deafening level. “How DARE you call me one of those…those…damned fishy bitches! I am a SIREN not some female Squid! Get away from me before I sing you up on those rocks over there.” Her arm shot out toward a breakwater made up of razor sharp coral. He knew she was giving him a rare chance to avoid being drowned by her call and he backed up to the sand as quickly as he could, saying a silent sailor’s prayer of thanks.
    “Idiot,” she spat, shaking her head. “Mermaid, huh! This beach ain’t big enough for both of us, sister!”

    Haha! He must’ve been cute to let him go. And what was his hurry? 😉

    “First of all,” said Elenora, bristling, “I know you’re not Capt. Jack Sparrow… so you can drop the hat and wipe off that terrible eye liner.”
    “Sorry, dear. Thought that’s what you wanted.”
    “How could you have gotten that odd notion?” she asked.
    “Well,” he said, trying to remember, “You mentioned the pirate dude and his favorite activity. Naturally, I assumed all pirates would put costume sex at the top of that list.”
    “No, you idiot, I said BRING THE RUM.”

    If he’s good-looking, he can keep the eye-liner on. But he still has to bring the rum. Haha!
