Jaws’ and Jane’s Day Out

Jaws’ and Jane’s Day Out

By Tim Hillebrant.

“Hey, Jaws!”

“What up, Jane?”

“Those swimmers are lookin’ mighty tasty, don’t you think?”

“Yeah, but ole Doc Fin says I have to cut back, they’re bad for my cholesterol.”

“Since when does a nibble on a swimmer or two up the cholesterol?”

“Since last month when I went on that rampage in Kokomo Beach.”

“That was you? I thought it was a Great White down from Jersey Shore.”

“Nope, all me.”

“That was six swimmers!”

“No, it was six swimmers, a skin diver, and a treasure hunter.”

“Eight people? You’re a machine!”

“Well, to hear the people tell it, all we do is eat, swim, and make little sharks.”

“Hot damn, you’re a menace.”

“Menace of the seven seas, that’s me!”

“Are you sure you don’t want to go after just one? That lady on the shore wading with her kids looks tasty.”

“She does, doesn’t she?”

“Yup. Just think, all that tender flesh, pruning in the water.”

“Yum, pruned people flesh. My favorite.”

“Should we dig in?”

“You know, I think I can restart my diet tomorrow. I’m in!”

Love this, Tim! I knew this piece was yours when I first read it in the Author-less Contest! You are a master of dialogue-only stories! Well done! 😉
