Here we are for another week. Today we’re gathered on a virtual shore of Loch Ness. We’re here to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s group. Our hostess is the talented and gracious author and artist Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Douglas M. Macilroy. Thanks again, Doug.

I just want to add two more notes.
First, those of you who are interested in reading more about the monsoon will probably enjoy the book, CHASING THE MONSOON by Alexander Frater. I saw it’s on Amazon. I enjoyed the book when I read it some years ago.
Second, please be patient with me if I don’t get to your comments right away. I’ve been having trouble with both my computer and the internet here. The two problems could very well be tied together.
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
DEEP IN THE LOCH by P.S. Joshi
Nessie rested on the cold loch floor. It was almost time for her daily swim. She was one of an ancient line of her kind.
Her real name was Plesi, short for plesiosaur. There remained ten of them, five males and five females. They lived in underwater caves.
Their ancestors came to Loch Ness millions of years before when there was a channel from the sea. It later closed, trapping them.
“You got your camera ready, Frank?” Matt whispered.
“Yeah. Do ya think one’ll show up tonight?” Frank answered.
“I sure hope so,” Matt mumbled. “This makes two years for me.” .
