It’s the last Friday of February.

Let’s end it with a bang. 😀

I’ve written a flash fiction from the image below, which was chosen by one of my FFF comrades. Exactly 100 words, no more, no less.

This week’s flash tale features a creature, both beautiful and deadly, from The Dragon Queen Series.

Flash Fiction Friday #16 ~ Water Demon

Cautiously, Evan inched closer. The foamy tide rolled up and splashed against the large algae covered reef. The women’s body, which he thought he’d imagined, fell from the reef and washed ashore.

“Holy shit, she’s real.” He rushed over to her.

Beautified with colors of blue and green, a lengthy aquatic fin extended from her waist. Carefully as he could, he gathered her up into his arms.

As soon as her body left the water, a pair of lean legs replaced the fish tail.

Suddenly, his brother came running his way, screaming, “Evan, put it back! It’s a water demon.”

Moral to the story; you shouldn’t pick up everything you find washed ashore. 😉
