Succinctly yours — renegade

THE  RENEGADE

The others always went in together, but Mya was the renegade of the group. The others would be out past their knees when she came running down the beach toward them. By the time they were up to their waists in the water, worrying about the waves, she would be swimming past them, worrying about nothing.

Grandma of

hosts a weekly meme called
Succinctly
Yours
wherein she asks a question:
"How low can you go?"

Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional, she reminds us. The word this week is renegade.

She knows the best way to get into the water is to do it in one big rush !

You did a word count-and it's good! I'm so used to the character thing that I don't even try the word story. Maybe I should...

I love your spunky girl, Kay! That's the approach I take to water - just leap in and do it!

A great write for the prompt...:)

Maya is certainly a determined renegade. Steadily she catches up and passes the others, kind of like the tortoise passing the hare. Well done, Kay!

Go Mya, go! :)

Elaine said...

Well done. Good one Kay!

Mya's carefree attitude is so inspiring: I shall put my hands in the air and not worry about today's waves! (Thanks!)

P.S. RATS! I can't seem to make a connection with the Linky Tool, so here's my link. Come pay me a Succintly Yours visit?

Wish I was more like Mya. Alas, I'm one of the slow pokes taking it one little step at a time. Nice MF!

I'm with Mya - a quick immersion is the only way to do it. Our temps have been over 100F for three days now and I am more then ready for a swim. :D A perfect take on this weeks pic.

Mya sounds like quite the little fire-cracker.
