The seashore had beckoned from the first.  The light of the sun, a contrast to the dark shadows of the rocky crevices.

His mind had become a lantern, illuminating all the options, of this double-barrelled reality.

As Mark leapt from the helicopter, George sighed, “Idiot.”

Alan suppressed a sigh, there was no helping it, he’d been warned that there might be field work involved.
