The Octopus
By: James Bates

The huge octopus had prowled the pacific coastline for over a hundred years. Two big eyes and scaly skin turned gray with age; it was a beast that knew no fear. Over the years it developed a taste for the occasional feast of human flesh. Like today. It made its way stealthily toward a surfer sitting alone on his board. The beast's eyes focused as it reached fearlessly and wrapped his muscular tentacle around the dangling leg and pulled. The surfer's scream lasted for only a second before he was lost forever to a hungry octopus and the unforgiving sea.
