The Gods Unremembered
By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words
Young Tony walked slowly up to the 30 foot statue and stared. The bronze and iron cast was covered in mold and barnacles and other scrapings from the sea. He turned to his father and, with a look of complete loss, asked the burning question.
“Dad, who is this?”
His father, being careful not to appear too ignorant, shuffled a bit before replying.
“Not really certain. It’s too covered to really tell.”
The couple walked off down the beach. Inside the statue, the mind was screaming.
“Triton! Just remember and I return! Why are you mortals so ignorant?”
