A Young Hero – Friday Fictioneers

It’s Wednesday and I’m Friday Fictioneering.  This photo by c.e. ayr (thank you) brought me back to our summers camping in Cape May, N,J.  We always had so much fun with my sister’s family and often, other friends.  Thanks always to Rochelle for hosting this weekly shindig.  Should you want to play along, just click on the frog below and leave the link to your 100-word story.

A Young Hero

We’ve been coming to “Dog Beach” near Cape May for years.  We love it because our dogs are allowed to frolic and play in the salty waves.

That’s not all that played in the water that summer.  The blood-curdling scream from my niece had us all jump in fright.  Her father ran, then froze by water’s edge. No matter, her cousin, five years her senior, came to the rescue.  Without a thought for himself, he ripped off the jellyfish, getting stung himself. The tentacles had wrapped themselves around her legs, leaving behind angry welts that thankfully, left no permanent scars.

  1. I like how you refer to bloggers as “fictioneers”. I just spent a week in Disney with my family and they refer to their artists as Imagineers. Your piece reminded me of that.

    • While I would love to be able to take credit for the Fictioneers word, I cannot. It’s part of a writing challenge where we have to write a story with a beginning, middle and end within 100 words. I do love the term imagineers, too! Thank you, MJ
