Hello! I know what you all are thinking – now what 🙂 And you are right! As usual, I am up to no good, poking my nose into stuff that are not my business. But what to do – Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers (photo prompts and 100 word stories) has me hooked. I find it fascinating how a single prompt can inspire such a diverse range of stories – quite remarkable. Anyway I couldn’t quite resist, so here I am with another attempt. But first the prompt.
Word count – 99
There was a gasp of horror and a crowd gathered.
Help! Someone save her! Mommy, take me along, Mommy I want to swim too! Someone do something! Hurry!
The waves thrash her body dragging her deeper into the ocean. Floating all alone in the sea under the blazing sun. Until the predators arrive one by one, to nibble at her flesh. She lay passive as they swarm all over pecking at her mortal remains.
Unknown hands drag her daughter away. She is alone. Then the predators arrive…
“Mommy?” A hand tugged hers.
Shuddering, she stepped back from the edge.
