CCC97: Fishing

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #97

“What are you after?” I asked as I passed the boy and his mother.

“Bass,” said the boy.

“Mullet,” said the mother.

“What have you caught?” I asked.

“Nothing,” said the mother.

“The mullet won’t bite,” the boy said.

“And why should they?” said the mother. “Would you take from a new source when you’ve plenty of food on your own ground?”

I nodded and walked on.

  1. It’s simple but great, Crispina. Everyone has a lesson to tell, only you need to be willing to listen. I hope they get enough to feed themselves and take to the market though. Life can be tough for fisherfolks like them.
