The cloaked figure stood by patiently waiting. Twenty years ago people would have stared in fascination, watching the receding water pull away from the shoreline. He would come through and claim several of them once the water made landfall.
Now, with the advent of smartphones, the kids stared at the water much longer, each trying to catch the perfect video of the phenomenon, in hopes of getting more “likes,” he reckoned.
They made his job far too easy these days, actually took away much of the fun. Sure, he would take them with the water, but it wasn’t the same.
Ran Walker is the author of twenty-one books. He writes “because there are millions of stories that need to be told.”
