Photo prompt @ Friday Fictioneers


“Ooh..what are all these mum? There are sho many of them. Ain’t they huge and funny”, the little one was clearly amused on his first trip to the shore.

“Shhh! Let’s go back home. They are trouble!”

“They don't like us mum? Why would they touble us? Didn’t you say that if we don’t touble others, nobody would touble us? Did we touble them mummy? ”. He was persistent.

“Oh, shut up, will ya Clawy? If you get caught, they will make a cake outta you! Turtly told me crab cakes are delicious.. ” momma crab shared her concern matter-of-factly.

  1. I love the twist at the end. I still had mermaids on mind so the crab thing was unexpected. Not so keen on "Clawy" as a name, thought it works.
