U is for an Underwater Story

U stumped me. I thought by now I would have something--anything--to share with a word that starts with the letter U. But no, nada. I don't have a fancy schmancy U word to feature...until I saw this picture and realized, Hey! I know what to do. I'll share a short story that takes place Underwater.

*nods happily*

So here ya go, and I hope you'll enjoy this.

Nice! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with Z, and I've been thinking about it for weeks. You handled the U challenge pretty well considering you were blocked. Hopefully inspiration will hit me when I finally have to type up Z!

Wow, what a powerful story! Sad and twisted ending, but poignantly beautiful nonetheless!

THis is great! And tragic. But you did it well. I'd love a dark underwater story like this.

How beautiful and dark. I didn't want it to end!
