Thanks for stopping. Another picture…another 100 words.
“I have nothing more to say.” Julie turned, half hoping Matt would stop her. “I’m heading back to the house.”
“Come on, let’s talk. It took a lot of finagling to get you down here.” Matt grabbed her hand.
“What all did you do?” She pointed to the bucket. “Get Cliff to catch something?”
“What is that anyway, a lobster?”
“No, it’s a crayfish.”
She observed the crustacean sitting at the bottom of the bucket. It had no choices left, unlike her. Matt’s fingers slipped from her hand. She didn’t want to lose him.
“Can we go and observe?”

This leaves me with so many questions. Great flash 🙂
Does she stay with him? Leaves me wondering about their relationship.
I wonder what is it they were going to observe? I like the line about the crayfish having no more choices.
really well written flash

Love it! The part with the crayfish being out of options unlike her was really good.
But what is this Flash Fiction Friday stuff, can anyone join?
