Two Answered Prayers

50-word story

Clinging to the piece of driftwood, Arnie prayed for daylight.

When the sun rose, it illuminated an endless sea and an empty sky.

By noon, he was sunburnt and praying for deliverance from the heat and thirst.

The first indication that this prayer would be answered was a dorsal fin.
