Another week, and another prompt for the Friday Fictioneers graciously provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields
The task is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.
People like me who like and need constructive criticism label their posts with a C, according to the guidelines of the Friday Fictioneers Concrit Subgroup.
Oh- and this is my 200th post! 🙂
“Don’t go there!”
This place is magnificent. The lake is covered with water lilies, their blossoms a sea of colour blazing in the sun.
Birds and insects are the only creatures around. Their sounds lull me to sleep.
“There’s something in the water!”
A cool breeze wakes me up. Waves ripple the lake’s surface and reveal a crumbling construct; wooden poles stand in two even rows. This must have been a wharf once.
“People have disappeared!”
The two rows move away from each other. I blink. This isn’t wood.
“You only see it just before it kills you.”
