The Old Man in the Sea
The first time out the Old Man nearly did me in, or so I thought. His accomplice, the lava outcropping and coral attached to it near the bottom cut me up so bad that I had difficulty walking for the next several days. The Old Man kept bashing me up against it as I tried to hang on in an attempt to keep from going under.
Later in the week I just nearly succumbed to the Old Man having a real hard time just getting back to shore.
Each and every time out, the Old Man took something from me; monetarily not big losses, but still losses nonetheless.
I have completed writing the story and am currently in the edit//re-write stage. Should be finished real soon.
I am not sure to this day who really came out on top in the two encounters that took place. Although I am still walking around, this, in itself, does not truly make me the winner – I’m conflicted yet.
