Armando Overboard – A Short Story

October 25, 2012

Foul play on the gentle waters of the Adriatic

Istanbul at dusk from the Marmara Sea

Edith stumbled on the metal stairs as she handed her plastic identity card to one of the stewards who routinely pointed a handheld electronic device at the card and glanced matter-of-factly at her picture as it materialized on the small screen. He nodded and seemed to dismiss her as he signaled to the next cruise passenger to come ahead. “Darn this cotton dress,” she cursed mildly, turning to watch her travelling companion and good friend Marge ascend the same “gang plank,” as she had rechristened it when they first stepped aboard to begin a week-long cruise down the Adriatic and up the Aegean to exotic Istanbul.
