What is real? (Friday Fictioneers)

November 24, 2022

“Doesn’t it look like a giant pulled the grass aside like a curtain to expose the white rock?”

“Say what?”

“A giant love.”

“A giant what?”

“No A giant, a giant. A human but giant sized. Like an ogre or a rock troll from those shows you like to watch.”

“Well, what makes you think one didn’t?”

“What?”

“Yeah, and the footprints are in the water which is why you can’t see them.”

“And the beach?”

“Wind blew the sand in, covered it up.”

“Giants, huh?”

Thud thud thud.

“Why is the ground shaking like that?”

“Ah, honey?”

“…yep.”

“Run!”
