Buried Deep Down by E.M Fitch—Part One

Word around town is a shark had bitten a kid's leg off. Tommy knows different. It wasn’t a shark. The creature was something fierce with long flowing hair, wide eyes and a little tail wrapped around bulrush plant. The creature had sharp teeth alright, but it wasn’t a shark. 

The circus is in town and the ringmaster is offering gold for treasure. Tommy knows that the creature is a treasure, a treasure of the sea, right in his own little town. A treasure that is dangerous and worth diving for. Join me this week in the first part of EM Fitch's tale, Buried Deep Down.
