She tiptoed, as if on shattered glass, across the smashed mussel shells, towards the dark expanse of the ocean. The froth of the waves kissed the ankles of the surfers; then crashed with a thundering roar. Laura readjusted her school skirt, rolled up in rebellion, and flicked her hair into the wind. The breeze drew in the sea air; it was bitter and salty, with a tang of vinegar.

She reached down and clasped the unidentified object with her wind swept hands and as the sand blew away with a gust of air, the object revealed itself. What lay in her hands was no creature, nor an object of alarm, but a mobile phone.

The End
