Thanks once again to the BookShelf Gargoyle for the prompt for this month’s Flash fiction in 50 words prompt.  As usual, I’ve taken it as my title.

Raising the Bar

Bubbles rose as divers attached chains to the chest.  Two pulls on the rope signalled the winchmen above.  The chain took the strain.

“Next time, go slower.”

“Next time, put one bar at a time in a net,” replied the other, perched on the hull of their tug, awaiting rescue.
