The Day Out

Prompt image for the Fandango's Flash Fiction prompt

For Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #121, where we write about this image from Reddit:

A three-inch-thick piece of glass stood between them, easily sufficient to withstand the large pressure difference. On the one side, fifty humans, and on the other, a hundred varieties of fish. A truly educational experience, to see so many of them in such a confined space.

A fish meandered slowly past the window, her tail swishing indolently as she passed close to the barrier. She was followed by her youngest baby.

“Mum”, it complained, “I’m hungry. Can we go get some lunch soon?”
