I hope you are well and ready for some more Flash Fiction. As always, we are given our photo prompt by our wonderful Friday Fictioneer leader, Rochelle . The rules are to write a story in 100 words, using the photo prompt as inspiration. I do apologise for my being behind with reading everyone’s work. I am busy learning lines for The Hollow and taking children to hospital appointments, whilst gearing up for the holiday’s. I am hoping to catch up shortly.
So here is my attempt for this week. I hope you enjoy it.

Under the Sea.
The boat bobs up and down on the gentle waves.
I blink against the bright sunlight.
The shoreline barely visible.
“Fancy a swim?”
He lifts me in his strong tanned arms.
I squeal as he jumps.
The salt water coats my skin, my body tingling.
I can’t stop it.
My legs are replaced by shimmering coral scales.
I have to get away!
“You’re…” his turquoise tail twitches, “like me.”
“We’re the last of our kind.”
“We don’t have to be.” He winks at me and I chuckle.
“Well…if we must…” His mouth captures mine, swallowing my words.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my offering! If you fancy reading some more stories from the Friday Fictioneers please click on the little blue froggy, you won’t be disappointed!
Here are two of my favourite songs from The Little Mermaid.

Mad Cow Productions present THE HOLLOW By Agatha Christie – THE HOLLOW is a classic English country house mystery, and rather a lot of fun.
An unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell.
With all the usual suspects assembled: the jilted lover, mistress, wife, and of course, a butler. It is up to Inspector Colquhoun and Sergeant Penny to work out “whodunit!”
