A WATERY DEATH
A Sci-Fi Horror Short Story
A recognized tournament is coming to Redmoon Lake. If word gets out that an abnormally large alligator gar has not only taken over the lake it has taken someone’s life the event would surely be called off. More than likely it would never be rescheduled. The members of an amateur anglers fishing club plan to take matters into their own hands.
Lee Jackson, a thirteen-year-old budding geologist, moved farther away from his younger brother and the shoreline, as he continued on his quest to find more rocks and gemstones to add to his growing collection. “Chal-ced-o-ny.” He pulled a spiral tablet from his hip pocket. Flipped through the pages until he found what he was looking for. “Yep. Chalcedony. Includes many varieties of, um, crypto-crys-tal-line... cryptocrystalline quartz gemstones.” He stuffed the tablet in his pocket. Following a worn trail around a curve he glanced back in time to see his brother, Tate, casting his line into the water.
