Anyways, my theme is Learn A Word in 100 Words. Each day I will showcase a new word and include it in a short flash fiction. I hope you enjoy.
1: A mythical serpent with a head at each end
Two heads rose out of the water. Serpentine eyes blinked.
I was vividly aware of the camera around my neck but didn’t move. The amphisbaena in front of me was too mesmerizing, too incredible for me to think clearly. I was in a stupor.
One head cocked as if it was assessing me. The other seemed bored. It stared at the water rippling around its neck. A screech made me jump. The creature dove back under. Soon, the surface was smooth as glass.
I sank to the ground. Idly, I touched my camera. “They wouldn’t believe me anyways,” I murmured.
