Microfiction #Three Line Tales: Méduse

A bit of fantasy for Sonya’s Three Line Tales photo prompt.

The Sea King was angry, very angry, and he had already chased the mortal fisherman from his undersea realm, leaving him to drown in the unforgiving ocean.

She would have joined her lover had her father not kept her in his house and placed guards before the door.

The mortal would not drown—she had given him her protection after all—and veiling herself in an illusion for the benefit of the guards, she slid into the current, a magnificent Méduse, and let the tide carry her to the strand where her lover waited.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
