Title: A bad day's work
Ratings/Warnings:1st-2nd years, none
Pulling in the catch of the day, I found the nets completely destroyed. Fingering the frayed edge of the nets, I was puzzled. The maps charted no rocks here for miles around and down.
I turned to my father.
“How did this happen!” he scolded.
“I don’t know.” I hung my head.
He hauled up his net, and found exactly the same thing. He shook his head, rubbed his eyes, not wanting to believe it. Then he stared at the fish floundering on the deck, snapping away at the net.
“Son,” he said. “I think we just caught a Shrake.”
I leave Skrewts!
