Eyes Of The Waterfall – by Hugh W. Roberts
Water flowed from the bottom to the top, yet everybody else told Miranda it flowed from top to bottom.
“Not true,” Miranda shouted as she snatched her hand away from her mother’s grip and strode across the shallow pool through the crystal-clear waterfall.
“Miranda! “Come back now!” screamed her mother while watching her daughter get soaked.
Looking through the waterfall at her mother, Miranda noticed it flowed from top to bottom, but the strange, terrifying creatures looking back at her from the other side of the waterfall petrified her more.
Only when the waterfall stopped did Miranda’s nightmares begin.
Written for the 99-word flash fiction challenge hosted by Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch.
