Under the Waves
“What’s down there mummy?”
“That’s the deep. We never go down there child.”
“There are dangers in those deep waters. Not even the light from above can penetrate that darkness and the nameless horrors dwelling there. We swim nearer to the surface.”
“What’s up there?”
“That is the place where the water ends. We can survive for a while there, but it is here where we belong. Not like humans.”
“What are humans?”
“They have legs instead of tails. They cannot breathe down here, which is why it’s amusing to drag them under and watch them drown.”
This was written with the prompt deep waters provided by Carrot Ranch’s June 11 Flash Fiction Challenge.
