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 the picture below, which this week is supplied by Anne Higa.

It’s just an underwater zoo.
Beautiful creatures who should be free, swimming in the great oceans, are trapped behind glass.
For your entertainment.
Some are made to perform tricks just to eat.
They are confined, farmed and displayed, all for money.
So I’ve decided to change things.
Just a little.
I have locked the aquarium doors.
And I’m flooding it.
You, the paying public, are below sea level, of course.
Very soon you will realise the biggest difference between yourselves and your erstwhile prisoners.
You’ll really appreciate what they have that you don’t.
The ability to breathe under water.
