Indifferent to her terror; apathetic to her cries.
From the loch it emerged –
Trailing seaweed; dressed in algae.
A slimy claw ripped at her swollen belly.

This piece was my first winning effort in the Trifecta Writing Challenge. I have placed five times in all, but this was my debut appearance on the top step of the medal rostrum! As ever I am flattered that those judging saw something in my work.
