They were lying quietly on the river bank after making love.
All was quiet and serene until a splash interrupted the tranquility.
‘I wish you wouldn’t do that,’ she said sleepily.
‘What?’ he replied keeping his eyes closed.
‘Throw a stone into the water. It ruins the mood.’
Both sat up and looked around them.
‘Did something fall in then?’ she asked.
‘I have no idea, but something about the water has changed.’
Wide awake now and adjusting their clothing, they sat upright.
Another splash, but there was nothing anywhere that could have caused it.
Then they saw it.
Something was coming OUT of the water, a shape unlike any other, making strides towards them.
They both fled.
