Flash Fiction Friday #11 - 24 February

I can't believe it's that time again. Flash Fiction Friday. When writers get together to give their version of a story in 100 words, no more no less, inspired by one given picture. Please read all the talented writers inspired stories by clicking the link provided.
Here is my version. Enjoy.


Derek tore his clothes off and dived in as he saw Ruth struggling to keep afloat.  Managing to pull her out, she buried her head in him as he wrapped his arms around her.

“Oh Derek,” she sobbed. “I was so afraid.”

“You’re safe now honey. What happened?”

 “I wanted to go skinny dipping but heard horrible howling noises nearby. Like a wild dog. And piercing screams. I was so scared I fell in, hitting my head. I thought I was going to drown. Thank goodness you found me.”

Frank crouched behind a bush watching closely. His eyes glinting amber.
