Method or In Deep #fridayfictioneers via rochelle – 9/13

The challenge posed is to write a 100-word story inspired by a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog. I am new to this group and don’t know if writing two stories is Verboten. So please let me know if I need to flip a coin next time two stories fight for the title slot.  And make sure to click the link below to read other writer’s creations.

Footnote: Thomas Capano was convicted of killing his lover Anne Marie Fahey and dumping her body in the Atlantic Ocean.




In Deep

Tony panicked.  Imploringly she looked at him” Daddy what are you doing with Nemo?” the tears welling in her eyes.

Caught red handed over the toilet he punted “Remember in the movie? Nemo was trying to swim home. He was too quick Honey. I couldn’t stop him.”

“This is his home.” Fay stomped accusingly.

What had he been thinking? After tooling around the harbor for the last 4 hours, Fay desperately crying out “Nemo”, he knew he should’ve been honest. But at this point he didn’t want to go home.  He’d a bigger problem. His wife was gonna kill him.
