Good day freewriters! Here is my freewrite entry for the prompt "Noodling". This 5-Minute Freewrite Challenge is an initiative by @mariannewest. You are invited to join this challenge by checking her profile for the daily prompt, as well as @freewritehouse.


Bestfriends Jean, Marcus, and Pete took a vacation to the town of their another best friend. The latter's house is close to the lake, and the landscape is beautiful enough and a great place for relaxation. On their first night, they had barbecue near the lake and bonfire. That time they heard something from the lake but shrugged it off.

Anna is unaware of it considering she stayed in the city for a long time where she studied along with her friends. Pete told Marcus that night that he will go to the lake to do "noodling". Marcus told him not to go because it's illegal in the state, but Pete told him they will go early when not so many are around. Also, the place seems secluded so Pete has been able to convince Marcus.

That early morning, the two are walking their way out of the house when Anna's mom saw and asked where they're going. The two responded, they'll just boat around. She warned them not to do noodling in the lake, which the two has said "yes".

The two headed to the lake, and Pete is getting ready to dive when Marcus has stopped him, but he proceeded to dive. Marcus has been waiting even up to an hour. Worried about what happened, Marcus left and reported it to the cops. The next day, Pete's body was found and died of drowning. It should've been a great vacation but resulted to the loss of their friend.
