Day Seventeen: Graveyard
Flood Part Thirteen

“Have you thought much about what’s below us?”
“I’m trying not to sweetheart.”
“I feel like a ghost…with bad hair…”
“Look at me, no look at me…in my eyes. We’re alive…barely right now, I know, but we’re alive. No, don’t sigh or shake your head. We’re not down there, we’re not amongst the ruins, we’re here!”
“I can’t even cry…look no tears left, not even salty ones. My hair’s straw, my lips chapped and sore, and we’ve both lost more than a few pounds…we’re ghosts lost at sea.”
“Listen to me!  We’re not dead…yet! We’re still among the living!”

    Using dialogue alone, you have created an eerie atmosphere full of sensory elements that made me feel I was right there – I actually reached for my chapstick after reading this!! Great writing!! 🙂

    I feel awful for them that their sitaution appears to be like death itself. The persuation of the other to convince otherwise is frustrationg yet heartbreaking. I really want them to succeed!!! xxx
