THE SOUND by Mike McCorkle

"Who's there?" the old man yelled from his kayak. An oppressive silence overcame him like a wave. He was not a man to hear voices in the night nor to go to church on Sunday, but how can he deny the haunting, audible intonation?
The sinister voice warned him as the boat crested over the first waves he met on the two nautical-mile, open-water crossing. He wondered for a moment if his mind was truly escaping him. Madness, however subjective, he rarely deferred to. In solitude noises can be explained away as the consequences of isolation. Despite his predilection to heed the plea of this sound, the old man continued, dismissing the warning as an encroachment of his imagination.
