Gone Fishing

I saw the park, and the pond nestled in the greenery, and knew that today was my lucky day. As always, I had gone prepared with my fish landing net, opportunities can present themselves anytime, anywhere, so ‘Always be prepared’ was my motto.

All excited now, I bent down by the side of the bridge with my net. But I knew it wasn’t enough to catch them. So, I stretched a bit more.

I sensed some movement now, but it still wasn’t enough. Maybe they need a better look at the bait, I thought. And now, I stretched as much as my body would allow, and then some more, till I felt as if I would break with the stress.

And it was then that one of them finally took the bait, and with a loud chuckle, told her friend, “Will you take a look at that ass?”

And hidden from their sight, my face lit up as the friend replied, “It’s gorgeous, isn’t it.”

I knew today was my lucky day.
