Another Wednesday, another Friday Fictioneers. The challenge is to write 100 words story that has a beginning, middle and end, inspired by the photo posted on Miss Rochelle’s blog. So, here it goes…
My latest attempt draws an inspiration from the works of one of my favorite authors, Jules Verne and combines characters from his two books – The Children of Captain Grant (Les Enfants du capitaine Grant, 1867-1868) and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Vingt mille lieues sous les mers, 1870.)
“Are you Mary and Robert Grant?”, a strange, muffled voice came from the giant towering above them.
Robert shrieked, trying to take cover behind his younger sister.
Peeking under the pillows, Mary said: “Yes, we are. How do you know our names?” sounding more confident than she actually felt and continued to fire questions: ” What do you want from us? Just so you know, I am not afraid of you.”
Captain Nemo removed the helmet and asked: “What do you know about Atlantis? Your father said you would help.”
Mary winked at Robert : “You’re up for a quest?”
After two rather serious stories, I was ready to have some fun. Oh, how I wish to be a part of some secret adventure/quest in some faraway place.
