The Gambler


Entry to this week’s Sunday Photo Fiction!


Jack found a tiny hook by the edge of a small pond. Tying a piece of string to its end, he threw it into the water and in short order, the pond offered him a fish. Impressed, Jack bought up a hundred tiny hooks and threw them into the pond. Not a single fish was caught. Puzzled, he asked the captive fish why the others didn’t bite. The fish replied that its siblings were young and haven’t yet lived out their lives. Not believing the fish, Jack bought a large hook and rowed out to the center of the pond. As soon as he dropped the line, three rows of giant teeth sprang from the depths and swallowed him and the boat whole.

One step forwards, two steps back. Do a one-eighty, trip on a crack.

The dead-ends frown, they forbid en mass. Rocks and hard places, litter the past.

But what to do? No way around. Lest fire he thought. Will fly like sound!
