Writing prompt – Lily pond

Lily pond, Natural History Museum garden by Judy DarleyI am rather a fan of your average, unprepossessing lily pond – the life that teems on and beneath that gleaming surface is ideal for idle observation as your mind drifts.

But imagine if the pond you gazed upon, only half-seeing what lies before you, suddenly offered up something rather more sinister than a water boatman or gaping goldfish…

What could rise unexpectedly from the depths to break the surface tension? What tale might that unfold into?
