Y is for Yell

Here we are at the penultimate day of the A to Z Challenge!  Today I have a drabble for you.  A drabble is a story told in precisely 100 words.

Today's word: YELL



The blissful calm of the beach was stunning.  Octavia took a deep breath, allowing the salty tang to fill her until she felt ready to burst.
Gentle ocean waves lapped at the grains of sand near her bare feet.  She dipped a toe in, and the chill sent an electric tingle through her body.  The orange glow of dawn made everything new with its enchanting light.
With a smile splitting her face nearly in two, Octavia leaned back and let out a good, hearty yell.  Not one of anger, but of exhilaration.  She simply couldn’t contain the joy she felt.


  1. That's what I do if my wife drags me on a thrill ride, but it's not in exhilaration - it's to keep from exploding.

  2. That does sound like a beautiful scene.
