New short story

It starts with a man on a plane…

This story was one of a number that I first-drafted while on holiday over the summer. I can’t recall if I wrote this story on the plane, but it’s genesis was definitely the flight out.

So, you’re on a plane, with a hundred or so other passengers. Maybe you know a few, but most are strangers. Some look like they’re going on holiday (pale and excited), or just returning (tanned and tired). But others are more of a mystery‌—‌the lone passengers, the ones who might be on a business trip, or who might be doing‌…‌something else.

For this story, I let my imagination run wherever it wanted. What if one of these mysterious passengers were on a mission to save the world? What if the world was being invaded, and only this passenger and a handful of others knew?

And what if the invaders were winning?

The result was Hold Back The Waves, which you can read here. As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
