DISCLAIMER: No copyright infringement intended…I only follow where my inspiration leads (and this time it's right down a beach after a jogging Malibu Rob)

A/N: Been a while since I dabbled in a drabble…hehe. This is in response to the prompt challenge laid down in the Drabble Forum on Facebook. The prompt was Water and I think a beach story fits that, don't you? At last check, there were 5 authors answering this challenge. I will fill you in at the bottom as to what the other drabbles are!

Beta'd by myself, so all errors are mine. Thank you to JA Mash, TrueEnglishRose, reyes139 and Nicole for stepping in as pre-readers.

Special thanks to JA Mash for the magnificent banner and custom manips for this tale. When this is finished, the PDF link to download will be on my blog ( www . toserveisdivine . blogspot . com ). The PDF will be enhanced with pictures.

Are you ready? 37 chapters this time around…here we go…

Just a castaway

An island lost at sea, oh

Another lonely day

No one here but me, oh

More loneliness

Any man could bear

Rescue me before I fall into despair

Message In a Bottle~The Police



I was going to be late for my first day on the job.

But it wasn't my fault, really.

The alarm hadn't gone off due to the power outage from the storm that passed through last night.

Luckily, Sam had woken me when he jumped on the bed.

Whining and licking as he pawed at me.

He needed to go for his morning run.

I could never get mad at my beautiful retriever, the only reason I had for living anymore, well, except for her.

After all, he'd led me to her.

Although, I guess I should claim partial responsibility for my lateness.

I was the one who didn't have the strength to keep my hand off my dick as I showered after our run.

I didn't need this job, but I needed her.

Too bad she was married.
