Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz (the blue frog) on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

The last ferry of the day, with its single, drunk, passenger, shuddered away from the Stag Hotel jetty.
The steward, Jamie, hoovered the saloon.
Laurence Glanville, the owner of the Stag Hotel, wasn’t going to be enjoying Catriona any more, gloated Jamie, as he took a small, heavy package from his locker. He hastily concealed it as the mate approached.
He glared at the drunk.
“Dinna puke on ma floor, laddie!”
The mate nodded and went to the wheelhouse.
Swiftly Jamie dropped the package into thirty fathoms of water.
On the mainland, flashing blue lights hurtled towards the port.
