Flash! Friday

FF – 1st August 2014

This week the prompt was freedom with the following picture. Enjoy.




DEPORTATION

“I expected more of a fuss,” said the Ferryman. “It’s unheard of for someone to beat Death and get a ticket upside.”

The boat skimmed silently across the still waters towards the lush, green bank ahead.

“So, how’d you win?”

The passenger shrugged. “Guess he was having an off day. Lucky me.”

“Ha!” laughed the Ferryman. “Had to happen eventually.”

The bow softly kissed the bank and the passenger was allowed to disembark.

“Well,” said the Ferryman. “Enjoy your new found freedom.”

“Thank you.”

“No problem.” The Ferryman waved as he pushed the boat out. “Place won’t be the same without you, boss.”

“Excuse me?”

The Ferryman just smiled before turning away and heading back to the other side of the river.

Death chuckled. The Ferryman had been a good friend and wouldn’t alert the Underworld straight away. Death turned and walked towards the archway that led to the land of the living. 

Time to start a new life.
