Swimming


The water was totally calm and nothing was really happening.
Susie hadn't been swimming for such a long time.
She saw the water flowing in all directions in ripples.
She was attracted to it like she needed to be there, in it.
She stepped into it, wanting to swim in it,
but knew that once you went in there was no coming back,
for there was a shark in the water. Some of the smaller, vegetarian sharks tried to fight him off, but to no avail.
He was heading straight for Susie's toe.
"A Shark, run run! I mean swim swim, you fool!"
But should she?
She turned about and tried to swim back.
But failed and was devoured.

Another from our one line each series - we will be posting more of these over the next few days.
