“I see Earth collapsing more and more every day – why is it that all our governments do is talk about it?”
I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:
Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word piece based on the Photo Prompt image above by © Ted Strutz
The whole mountain vista once consisted of glaciers and snow
Climate change stole that and yet danger persisted.
Grimes hauled on ropes containing his bait pots. “Help me, lads!”
Three bearded men tensed their wiry muscles, hauling in a bounty of king crab.
A pot emerged from the icy depths.
Grimes hooked on and screamed as a monstrous tentacle, dragged him overboard.
Hauled beneath the churning waves, he sunk to the icy depths.
There a large eye studied him.
He heard a voice emanating from the giant squid before he was crushed.
“You had your chance, now we save Earth!”
Thanks for reading my friends.
Have a great day!
