Since drabbles are brief, I’d appreciate it if you could hang around on this page for at least 30 seconds to count it as a read. If you feel like giving a round of applause, highlighting, or dropping a comment, that would be the perfect finishing touch. 💕

Lena stood on the beach, her hair wet and salty from the breeze.

“You know, back in my day, I used to sing for crowds bigger than this sea,” she joked to the seagulls.

A passing jogger chuckled, “Well, why don’t you give us a tune then?”

Lena grinned, clearing her throat dramatically. She belted out a classic hit, her voice surprisingly strong despite the years.

As she finished, applause erupted from the surrounding beachgoers.

Then, a rogue wave crashed ashore, drenching Lena from head to toe.

“Looks like the sea wants an encore!” she laughed, embracing the unexpected shower.
