I Want To Be Alone
In the late afternoon, most seaside towns quieten down, as the holidaymakers either go back home, or return to their hotels for dinner. It was about 6pm when I went for a stroll along the promenade. Looking around, I spotted this young guy sitting all alone & staring out to sea. I wasn't sure why he was there, but thought he'd make for a good study in loneliness.
Just then, his friend appeared carrying some fish and chips. Obviously they'd had some sort of row & he'd gone off to sulk. And as women tend to do, she returned to make peace with him.
