The Shipwreck

“Ready?”

They were sitting on the edge of the boat in full scuba gear, bobbing gently with the waves.

“You know, other guys do first dates in restaurants. Not searching for old shipwrecks.”

He grinned. “Other girls don’t come.”

They jumped in and tread water.

“Look down, right below us. That ship’s captain was Thomas Halford. He was bringing his wife, Lucy, home when a storm sunk them.” He wrapped an arm around her and pulled her close. “It’s said they went down arm in arm.”

A shiver went through her body.

“Maybe they were cold.”
