Flash Fiction Friday

A story in 55 words
(as counted by MSN Word, any complaints about word count should be forwarded directly to Bill Gates)
He closed his eyes and willed his muscles to relax as the wave crashed over him, his cold, cruel mistress lashing him. Days of anticipation and rides on the crest of ecstasy were a counterpoint to times like this, when he knew death was moments away. Once he caught his breath, he'd be ready again.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This whole flash fiction thing is mostly Susie's idea.
Feel free to write one of your own if you like.
Also, if you have a question for next week's quiz please e-mail it along with 4 possible answers and the correct one marked to logophile_mania@yahoo.com
NO MORE poetry question though, I think we all need a break.
Also, if you have an interesting website or something, share with us, please!
Happy Weekend to you weekday bloggers, see you on the flip side.

Wow, Logo, who knew you wrote so well? Nicely done!

I suppose if I stand any chance of faring remotely decently in your quizzes I should submit some questins I might know the answers to. I'm on it...

I don't have much, but you did a great job with that, teacher. The last sentence was a good twist.
I think I sent a question a while ago. I hope you still have it.
Have a great weekend! : )
