FFfAW: The stowaway

This week’s photo prompt is provided by BarbCT/Gallimaufry. Thank you BarbCT!

The boat was finally leaving shore and the stowaway allowed herself a sigh of relief. It was going to be all right at least until the next time the boat docked. By then, she hoped, she would have travelled far enough to escape what she needed to.

The abusive marriage had become even more intolerable when the ever-present threats of violence began to come from the people she had once called friends.

Getting on the boat had been a spur of the moment decision when she had noticed it loading on the nearby port.

Finally, she had a future.
