The Shark Hunters!

Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

“Mother, how did Daddy die?”

“Your father and his brother tried to kill the shark.”

“What shark?”

“There was a shark that would swim in the ocean, killing people from our village. Your father and his brother grew to hate the shark and the fear it instilled in their family and friends, so they tried to kill it.”

“What happened?”

“The shark killed your father and attacked his brother. His brother was badly injured, so he stole a car and drove to the hospital on the other side of the island?”

“Did he die?”

“No, but he went to jail with one arm. Real clusterfuck, that one.”
