Flood – Friday Fictioneers

AnElephantCant spend a day without swimming
It keeps his skin soft and cools his hot blood
He loves a cold shower
Has one every hour
But he is not so sure that he wants to splash about in a flood

Sound Bite Fiction

Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
Here in paradise the sun is shining as usual, as it is in Jennifer’s great photo.
But not so much in my little tale.
The idea is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below.

It has been raining non-stop for more than five weeks now.
The valleys and fields are long flooded, but still we frolic on the hilltops.
We don’t care about getting wet, and we have to run free.
Even more than the great cats, the dancing gazelles, the mighty buffalo, we treasure our liberty.
Almost every other creature has succumbed to his promises, but we do not believe him.
We see the messages left in the stones as they search everywhere.
