Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 08 ‘The Silver Selkie’
Day 08 and our final story now the big day is here. This one is a very brief kind of sneak peek of a story we are working on about ‘The Silver Selkie’ (a selkie is a beautiful mythical creature half seal half human).
This is another #OneHundredWords story The Silver Selkie’ by Rose English.
The Silver Selkie
The shell whispered its hidden lullaby as the sun disappeared and seemed to melt into the salty sea. As the world turned, all colour drained away and the stars became visible as white dots in a dull grey sky. Before long they were sparkling upon black velvet.
The moon climbed high, leaving a silvery path upon the water. The child smiled, for there before her eyes approached a beautiful sleek silver seal. As the seal reached the shore, she raised herself up and her skin fell away, revealing a pretty lady. The child ran into her arms.
“Grandma you came.”
