West Beach Story

It’s Friday Fictioneers time again, hosted as always by Rochelle. This week’s photo comes to us courtesy of E. A. Wicklund. You can read all the entries here – stop by and take a look!

I was going to write a story entitled “Invasion!” but this morning I decided to turn it on its head and do a sort of Romeo and Juliet type thing instead. Only with seagulls!

“Great mating dance, Romero, but this can never work.”

“But I… I love you, Julia!”

“And I love you, but I’m ‘West Beach Raiders’.”

“And I’m ‘Town Gull Massive’. Deadly rivals, always and forever.”

“Yes. But I shall love you from afar, always and forever. Now go, go back to town before you’re missed!”

“I shall be back when I am able, Julia, my love!”

All my thoughts are consumed by her. I can’t think, I can’t eat, I can’t slee… ooh, tourist, ten o’clock high! Zero protective head gear is confirmed. Begin bombing run, bomb bay doors open, attaaaaack!
