Here we are again and this week we’re gathered near the sea. We’ve come together to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s 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 be inspired by the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Sandra Crook. Thanks, Sandra.
To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link given below, then on the smiling blue frog. Next, follow the given directions. The link for this week’s stories is as follows:

They Came from the Sea by P.S. Joshi
It was a dark, quiet night. A sizeable flying ship glided onto the water near the beach.
A door slid open on the side, and tall, thin beings stepped out. Special suits protected them from the salt water and contaminated air.
In their Deluvian language, the commander reminded them.
“Remember, drape the Deluvian plant on the fence so it can rapidly spread and purify the Earth’s atmosphere, soaking up all harmful substances. We need to save this planet as a universal water source. Ours is drying up, and other inhabited planets won’t share. Let’s hope Earth will.”
