Sea Blue

I looked again through the windows of the crappy motel where I’d landed. No one was outside in the stretch of sand between the room and the blue-green ocean. Good.

  4. I decided to do it. As I was cranking the ignition I thought that I should probably abandon the car after a couple hundred miles. I had no way of knowing when he’d report the car stolen, but it was best to assume it would be as soon as he discovered the car missing and me gone. It’s not very hard to get four out of those twos.

  5. John was sitting on the beach looking up at the blue sea before him what a vast sea he thought to himself , as he was looking he could not see an end to the water as it was uniting with the sky above it.
