Friday Fictioneers – Chain

5 June, 2015

After a break last week when I didn’t manage to get a FriFic done, despite taking my laptop on holiday and having wifi access, I am now back home and back in the Fiction groove.Email from Rochelle received? Check. Prompt Pic studied? Check. 100 words written? Check. Post posted? Check.



When the Empire’s most awesome warship did not return to port, the Emperor concluded there had been an accident at sea, that the dark day foretold by the soothsayer had come to pass. But the disappearance of his Flagship, on a diplomatic voyage with his most trusted advisor on board, raised deeper concerns.

A messenger was despatched to investigate. Arriving at the coast, he was taken to the hidden cove by anxious watersiders, shown the huge metal chain which now lay limp and useless on the sand.

Its final link had been bitten in two.

The Creature was missing.


  1. ACK! This is the definiton of a really bad day! 😉

  2. Whoops, missing Creatures ALWAYS spell trouble.

  3. Very chilling.

  4. I like it! I’m still feeling the chills. Great story.

  5. Holy cow! I never would have thought about that creature! Now I will have trouble sleeping at night…
    Thank you for a really imaginative story!

    Nice take on the prompt with the “Creature;” 🙂

  7. Oooh, interesting! I want to know more about the creature, this tale gives me chills, too. Great writing.

  8. He wasn’t expecting that! Neither was I. Great lead-in and a satisfying ending.

  9. Were they on the way to New York City to show him off like King Kong?

    Good tale. I like missing creature stories. Or was that creature feature stories? I can’t remember.

  10. Fantastic! You and I did take similar paths with this prompt. Only difference is, my creature is still trapped. But yours…yours is free.
