Maldives Malady, also 99c, is a lightly humorous holiday story featuring Dominic, a young man trying to find his own uniqueness in a bland and mediocre world. A chance to explore a seemingly unknown island is the perfect opportunity for this. Great holiday reading in short story form!
'Hey Dom, how you doin'?' a voice boomed. It was Ben. They proceeded
to talk about the upcoming exams, which were deceptively close as it was
week 10 at the moment. Yes, they would be alright. Yes, they would meet
up afterwards. No, he hadn't studied more than Ben had. As he clapped
the phone closed after the genial conversation reached its natural
nadir, he had forgotten most of what had been said'
'He walked a
few more steps. He could see nothing now except for the thick trees and
long ferns and grasses that surrounded him. He was enveloped into the
confined space between trees, surrounded by the jungle heat and staccato
chirps... This continued for a seemingly oppressive amount of time, and
he began to doubt his decision. To come to this place. To take a chance
with his life, which was going in the right direction'
