100-Word Scifi: "Sharkquake"

by Nigel G. Mitchell

Mayor Denton held up his hands. “Doctor, I understand your concern, but we have enough problems dealing with the earthquake.”

Doctor Barry Green faced the mayor. “This is no ordinary earthquake, sir. Seawater is flooding the fissures being opened by the tremors. A school of sharks has made its way into the city through the fissures. It's a shark-quake!”

They looked out of the mayor's office window at the water-filled cracks in the city streets. People screamed and ran as sharks leaped out of the trenches, grabbed citizens on the street, and dragged them under the reddening water.

If you're interested, Syfy, I'll be over here.
