“In the Stream” by Richard F. Yates

Just below the surface of the water, we thought we saw a face. And then a whole body. Just laying there looking up at the sky as the water ran over the blueish features. But as we walked, shakily towards the stream, whoever it was disappeared. We went back to our campsite, packed our things, and went home.

  1. This would be a great first paragraph of a book……! P.S., love “tilt” on threadless……

    • For this short, my daughter asked, “Was it really a face?” And my wife asked, “Did they put the body in the water?” (That’s why I married her!) They both had questions, and to my mind, that means I’ve engaged them in some way. Good enough for me! (Glad you like the shirt!)
