Photo Mysteries: A Writers' Game #15

And it's Tuesday again, so it's time for our weekly writers' game, in which Carmi (at Written Inc.) picks a photo theme, then I choose a photo, give it a story title to match, and offer a single and (I hope) tantalizing line of the story.  Then you do the same so we get a whole string of flash fiction relating to the photo in the comments section.
Here's last week's game so you can get an idea of what it's like.
For this week, Carmi has chosen "watery" as his theme, so here's my photo of choice:

My story title is: Killer Koi
My single line is: "Oh no!" Leslie shouted to me, looking in horror at her hand, which was still covered in bread crumbs, "My engagement ring is gone!"

Your turn.  Think of a story to match this watery (and fishy) photo.  Then post your title and a single line in the comments section.
C'mon in!  The water's fine!


  1. Frenzy

    As soon as he heard the splash he knew he had had his chips.

  2. Throbbing Thunderheads, No!

    Please don't take us home, thought the poor sad Koi as an echo of worriment ran through the slow swirling water of their tank, as the little boy asked, "Do they need batteries to swim Mommy?"

  3. Dinner is Served
    "I'll take that one in the middle, and that one, and that one, and that one, and that one."

  4. I can't think of a clever line - but I like the shot!

  5. Splish Splash I was Taking a Bath

    "The Feast of the Seven Fishes Festival was not for another 9 months! How was I to know there was a party going on??"

  6. Title: Spa Town
    First line: Harry coudn't help but laugh at Fiona as she went under. The fish were eating more than was expected.
