Jonas has just lost wife, so he turns to some comfort of solitude by taking a walk in the forest. The forest is familiar to him, but the creature which he discovers lying on the forest path is not. Jonas, through his grief, is spurred into life as he sets off on a mission to do something for the creature that he couldn't for Jolene, that is save it. As he searches the forest frantically for help, all he finds is setbacks which seems to push him further and further off the track to salvation and redemption. With people unable or unwilling to help him, and even going through a chance meeting with his recently deceased wife, will Jonas be able to save the dolphin?
This is probably one of the more straight-forward, most accessible short stories that I have produced. I wanted to blend some humour with a range of emotions and my own little twist of oddness. There is also one of my favourite monologues I have written in there too, when Jonas can’t contain himself and starts unloading his woes upon the creature. The dolphin is basically just a representation of how alone and lost we can feel at times in our lives.
