Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below, which this week is supplied by my favourite Fictioneer, the ultra-talented Sandra Crook.

Get him out of here, says the king dude, feed him to the fishes!
They take me out, none too gently, and tie huge boulders to my feet.
Then they heave me into the waves.
Unsurprisingly, I sink fast.
Then, somewhat more surprisingly, I find I can still breathe.
I open my eyes and there’s no water, just a big guy with a beard, looks a bit like Charlton Heston, standing before me with a puzzled look on his face.
Behind him there’s a lot of impatient folk, maybe Israelites, but I’m no expert.
I think, well, that was lucky.
