Here we are again another week. We’ve gathered this week at a beach to discuss our original stories. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for the gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us this week and every week is to write a story with no more than 100 words, not counting the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Lucy Fridkin, Rochelle’s friend since kindergarten. Thanks, Lucy.
To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

Genre: Fantasy Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
THE DANGEROUS BEACH by P.S. Joshi
Brad was enjoying his vacation on a small island off the South American coast. He walked down to the beach one morning and was surprised to find a local angler standing and examining some marks in the sand.
“Senor, if I were you I’d go back to the bungalows. It’s dangerous here today.”
Brad noticed the markings. There were drag marks as though a large fish had been pulled in. There were also handprints larger than normal.
“Why is it unsafe? What’s been here?”
The man turned to him and said, “Amazon mermaids.”
Just then, a spear barely missed them.
