Gone Fishing

Today's muse: Three Word Wednesday
Today's words: bait, jump, victim

Gone Fishing

You cast the line, tickled the surface of the water, enticed me to nibble. Ripples beckoned and undulated, promised depths beyond my imagination. The bait was tempting and I surrendered my innocence. But your net held me down as I thrashed about, a helpless victim, unable to jump through the webbing to safety. The tide has now turned. The last fisherman to lure me was capsized.

Nice little twist at the end. I like the simplicity of this, but the depth, too.
