Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Oops!

Hi all! So, as you know, this is supposed to be Five Sentence Fiction Friday. But, unfortunately Lillie McFerrin is experiencing some difficulties with her site, so there is no prompt for this week. However, I hate to let my fans (yes, I know. Who am I kidding?) down, so I've devised my own little five sentence story for you to enjoy. Have a great weekend everyone!

Once upon a time there was a little girl sitting by a pond. One by one, she dropped tiny stones into the water, whispering quietly as she did so. Her behaviour was so peculiar that it caught the attention of a fox wandering by, who asked her what she was doing. 
She smiled, raised a finger to her lips and pointed down into the water, beckoning him over to have a look. He gazed down into the pond and saw a pile of tiny stones sitting at the bottom, which to his horror began to tremble and move, as though something very small was trying desperately to get out, and he suddenly realized (although far too late) that this was not a little girl at all. 

I hope you enjoyed this promptless little story and that you all have a fabulous weekend! If you're still hankering for more Five Sentence Fiction, just follow the links below.
