FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER- 2017
Aaron slowly walked along the rocky landscape as he scanned the water for any sign of a ship or boat.
Part of his boat was still intact after a storm pushed it to shore, but it was not seaworthy.
He spent three days exploring the island and trying to decide what he would do if no one came for him.
He had used all of his supplies that were on his boat and only had a few things left in his backpack.
Using tree limbs and his cigarette lighter, he built fires in hopes of attracting attention from a ship or plane, but the few that came by, did not see the fire.
Once again, he built a fire in hopes of someone seeing it, and to keep warm.
The fire was in full blaze when a helicopter flew over the area, and he knew he would finally be rescued.
