Here we are for another week. Today we’ve gathered near a virtual body of water. Our hostess for this group meeting is the talented and gracious author and artist Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge for this week and every week is to each write an original story with no more than 100 words, not including the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields herself. Thanks, Rochelle.
To read the other stories by the group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

CHICKENS NEAR THE SEA by P.S. Joshi
On the planet Zenco, there was the beautiful Sea of Hushup. The only problem was it was full of vicious mermaids.
“Don’t worry, Druther,” Pictoo said as he read the latest information. “Those mermaids are located only around the island in the middle of the sea. The shores are safe.”
Druther was worried, but he had little choice. He’d signed on for this job of checking water quality as all others were strangely taken.
The two began work. There was a splash of silvery tails and fanged-tooth mermaids appeared. “Who do you think gave out your information?” they asked.
