SHARK - a story in less than 100 words



SHARK
“That shark’s head gives me the shivers,” Kirsten said, “Let’s go somewhere else.”
“We only want a quick snack,” Rick said, “You can sit with your back to it.”
He was lifting a toasted sandwich to his mouth when his hand froze and he turned a sickly shade of grey.
“What’s wrong?” Kirsten asked, but he could only point. She turned round to see the glass wall bulging, and powering towards them at full speed was an enormous shark.
There was no time even to scream.

Thanks to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers each week on her blog   https://rochellewisoff.com/  and to Dale Rogerson for the photo that prompted this week's stream of consciousness!  I am late on parade this week because last night I had the privilege of my granddaughter staying for a sleepover. She is four and a half - need I say more? <3

    1. It's just occurred to me that if I opened a cafe with such nightmare scenes showing on the wall in video, I'd probably make a fortune!

  5. Dear Liz,

    That is not something you want to see while eating a sandwich. Or any other time for that matter.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  15. Wow. That was fast. Maybe the shark will go after the backpack and they'll get away. That was great action, Liz, and the dialogue fit perfectly. It was like a terrible nightmare. Well done. ---- Suzanne
