‘We’re under attack!’ Sol yelled.
I ran to save the kids, but by the time I reached them our attackers had fled – bleeding and afraid.
Night fell over two rows of fighters – the guards standing between us and their island, and our own vicious pack lined up on our port side.
Children are scary.
I was babysitting earlier this year, picking kids up from their school once a week and staying a few hours until their mum finished work.
On one occasion, the ride home was. . . unusual. They refused to sit in front, but instead spent the ride home in the back seat, discussing how to kill me. In the end they agreed on a kamikaze attack.
They were both under ten years old – and vegetarians.
In other disturbing news, my horror story “Wave Goodbye” has been podcast here http://pseudopod.org/2009/08/28/pseudopod-157-wave-goodbye/
WARNING: it is HORROR, so not everyone will like it. Because it’s not written for children or young adults (except ones that like horror), I used my other pen-name, Felicity Bloomfield.
