Tuesday's Tales - Gone Boating


This week's Tuesday's Tale is a picture prompt. Write a story based on the above picture, but I have only 300 words to work with. So here we go! I've brought Eric and his sweetie by for yet another misadventure. Let's see what trouble he gets her into this time. Enjoy! 

To read the rest of the stories by some fine authors, go to the Tuesday's Tales Web Site.

Eric was up to his old antics again, getting frisky out in public, in full view of everyone.

"Out here? In a canoe in the middle of a lake?" I wailed. "What if someone with binoculars or a telescope sees us?"

"We'll just have to give them a good show." Eric grinned.

He pulled the straps on the back of my bikini top and it fell into the boat. I sat bare-breasted, covering myself. He tugged at my bikini bottom but I wouldn't budge.

"How am I supposed to get at you if you have these on?" He asked.

"Maybe we shouldn't..." I backed away, one arm still covering my breasts. I felt as if every eye on Crystal Lake spied on me! Eric crawled towards me, rocking the boat.

"Slow down. We're going to tip over," I whined.

"Let's do it. A dip in the cool water wouldn't hurt." Without warning, he gripped the sides of the canoe with both hands and shook it, hard. I panicked and grabbed the sides. That was enough to upset the balance.

The canoe flipped over, tossing both of us into the water. Eric's mule-braying laugh resounded around the lake. I fought with water trapped in my right ear. My feet didn't touch bottom, which I expected in 30 feet deep water, so I swam to the boat and clung on for dear life. Eric laughed the whole time, turning beet red from the effort. Somehow we made it to shore alive and intact, me covering myself since my bikini top disappeared in the water. Talk about putting on a show! At my insistence, we spent the rest of our vacation less than 20 feet from shore, and I wore a one-piece suit Eric couldn't mess with.

  8. Morgan, this one isn't based on a true experience, but the one about how she met Eric at a science fiction convention is.
