Theme: At the Bottom of the Ocean.
Optional prompt: “It had more eyes than I had bones in my body.” by SarcasticCupcake5.
This story is a follow-up to yesterday’s story, Dead on the Boat.
I thought that being stranded on a boat with a dagger stuck in my stomach was the worst it could get. The boat tipping over and tossing me into the freezing water was simply expediting the inevitable.
Boy, oh boy, I was wrong. I’m now standing at the bottom of the ocean, somehow not actively drowning, and looking at a massive creature which was definitely looking at me from all directions. It had more eyes than I had bones in my body. At least I was fairly convinced it had, considering how massive it was and how many eyes it had.
When the creature curled tighter around me and shrunk the personal space that I had for myself, I could not help but open my mouth and say, “Oh crap.”
One of the many tentacles curled around the hilt of the dagger. I froze.
The tentacle yanked.
