DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN JAWS IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM
“Okay,” said Carline, “Let’s not panic. I’m sure there’s a logical explanation as to why four massive sharks are currently circling our boat.”
“Yeah while you’re looking for it I’m going to try looking for a weapon to kill them!” said Thea.
“Chief, try and be reasonable,” said Carline.
“You can be reasonable all you want,” said Thea, “I prefer to act rationally if that’s alright! So what do we have on this thing?”
“I don’t think we have much on weapons Chief,” said Nick also looking around. The boat suddenly shook causing them to all fall over.
“Chief, I can’t help but think it maybe smarter to head back into shore and come back when we’re more prepared!” said Nick.
“That may not be a bad idea,” said Thea, “Carline can you start up the boat?”
“Yes but it maybe hard to try and maneuver around the sharks,” said Carline taking the helm.
“Run them over if you have to!” said Thea.
“Are you crazy?” said Carline, “Not only is that immoral but in case you haven’t noticed these are rather big sharks. Running them over could do a lot of damage to the boat!”
“She’s right Chief,” said Nick.
“Then we have to find a way to get them to move!” said Thea, “There’s got to be something we can do to get them to move!”
“Here’s a flair gun,” said Nick.
“Give me that!” ordered Thea as she grabbed it from his hand. She ran out to the deck and pointed it towards the circling sharks.
“Are you crazy?!” Carline shouted running after her.
“You got a better idea?!” Thea asked right as the boat was hit again.
“Damn I don’t know how much more of this ramming that boat can take!” said Nick.
“Point proven I think,” said Thea as she again aimed the flare gun towards the sharks. Right as one came by she fired. The flair shot headed straight towards the fin of the shark grazing it just barley. The shark immediately dived down into the water giving them an opening.
“Go go go!” Thea shouted.
Nick ran towards the helm and started it up going at full speed out of the shark circle.
“Hold on!” he shouted as he hastily started to turn it to the left and head back to shore.
Thea looked behind them and could still see the sharks coming after them.
“Punch it Nick Punch it!” she shouted.
“Why are they coming after us?” asked Carline.
“They want to kill us!” said Thea.
“You never give up do you?” asked Carline.
“Neither do you apparently!” said Thea, “Nick can you go any faster?”
“It’s going as fast as she can Chief,” said Nick. Thea pointed the flair gun again towards the oncoming sharks.
“Go ahead you sons-of-bitch, go ahead try and get me!” she shouted.
“You ever read Moby Dick Chief?” asked Carline.
“Several times!” said Thea as one of the sharks started to get closer. Thea fired another flair at them. That seemed to stall them long enough to put some more distance between them and the boat. Before long the boat was back at the docks. Thea immediately jumped off the boat.
“I got to get to the station,” she said, “I’m going to close the beaches!”
“What?” asked Nick and Carline.
“I’m not taking any chances,” said Thea, “And I’m issuing out a bounty for whoever can kill the four of them.”
“Chief are you sure you’re not going overboard on this?” asked Carline, “Closing the beaches? Offering up a bounty?”
“I said I don’t want take any chances,” said Thea, “Not when there’s four massive killing machines out there!”
“But Chief think about it,” said Carline, “If these sharks really are out to get you, why haven’t they gone after other members of your family or something?”
Thea’s eyes popped open in fear.
“Oh my god Chris!” she shouted. She raced over to her car and sped off.
“What was that all about?” asked Carline.
“Well I think she’s talking about her son Chris,” said Nick, “He’s usually watched by his grandmother and, oh shit!”
“What?” asked Carline.
“Thea’s mother-in-law lives on a house boat!” said Nick.
“Here comes the airplane,” said Miranda as she fed Chris sitting in a highchair, “There’s that’s a good boy. Grammy knows how to take care of her grandchildren, unlike your poor excuse for a mother who’s always too busy to take care of you.” Chris looked at her confused.
“Let’s see, what else do we have for lunch,” said Miranda as she got up from the table and walked over towards one of the cupboard. Just then her phone went off.
“Hello?” she said answering.
“Miranda are you home right now with Chris?!” asked Thea.
“Yes of course,” said Miranda, “That’s what a good mother does, stay at home and look after her children. Not merely dumped them on the most convent relative.”
“Miranda this is serious!” said Thea, “Get Chris out of there now! Take him over to my house or something! Just get him away from the water!”
“What are you going on about?” asked Miranda.
“Get out of your home now! It’s not safe! Get out now and try to see if you can get some of your neighbors out of there as well,” said Thea.
“Oh lord what are you going on about?” asked Miranda.
“There are sharks, and I think they may try coming for you and Chris. Big ones,” said Thea.
“Sharks really Thea?” said Miranda.
“Miranda I’m serious! These aren’t ordinary sharks! They’re massive in size and they already tried attacking me! I’m sure they’ll try coming after Chris as well and that means they’ll come after you as well!” said Thea.
“Oh my, sounds like all this so called work has finally gotten to your head,” said Miranda, “This is why I told you all along you need to give up working and be a stay at home mother.”
“Miranda please, listen to me!” said Thea.
“I got to go. Chris needs his lunch. You’d know that if you were a good mother,” said Miranda hanging up. “Honestly who ever gave her the right to breed?”
Suddenly the boat shook making her stumble into the counter. Chris started to cry.
“Now now don’t worry honey,” said Miranda, “I’m sure it’s fine.” The boat was hit again making her fall over again.
“What is doing that?” she asked.
She got up and headed towards the living room where there was a big window looking out towards the water. She didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. She was about to walk away and back to the kitchen when suddenly the boat was hit again making her fall over and land on her stomach. She could hear Chris crying louder in the kitchen.
“Sweetie, calm down I’ll find out what’s doing that!” said Miranda once again looking over at window. There she could see a fin swimming around outside the boat.
“What is that?” she asked right as the fin dive straight at the houseboat making it shake some more and knocking over Miranda over again. She tried to hurry towards the kitchen to try and get to Chris in the kitchen only to fall over again as boat was crashed into once more. This time it caused the boat to start to tip making her and start to slide down. She looked up and saw the one thing that was keeping Chris from falling over as well was the fact that one of her counters was blocking his high chair from falling over.
Thea pulled up towards the park lot of the houseboats’ main docks. As she ran towards them she could see a lot of the neighbors running out of their boats looking towards Miranda’s as it kept rocking to the point that it was starting to tilt upwards.
“Oh god no!” Thea shouted as raced towards the front door.
Miranda gripped her rug trying to pull herself up towards the kitchen and Chris. She managed to grab holed of her sofa and continued to try and climb up.
Miranda?!” shouted Thea opening the door. She had to grab the handle to keep from falling. She looked over at the kitchen where she could see her son in his highchair leaning up against a counter.
“Thea!” she heard Miranda cry out, “Help!” Thea looked over and saw Miranda clinging to her sofa for dear life.
“Hang on!” Thea shouted as she tried climbing into the house, moving towards Chris first. She reached over and managed to a hold of her son’s highchair and pulled him towards her. “I got you I got you sweetie.” Then she looked over at Miranda.
“Do you have a rope or something?” she asked.
“I think it’s the supply closet near where you are,” said Miranda.
“Hang on I’ll try to get Chris out and then I’ll use it to get you,” said Thea.
“What are you crazy?” asked Miranda.
“I’m sorry but as a “good” mother I have to save my son,” said Thea pulling Chris out of the house.
“Well for the love of god hurry it up!” Miranda ordered.
“Hang on hang on,” said Thea.
Thea and Miranda all looked over towards the window where a massive shark had crashed through. It was thrashing it mouth widely near Miranda. Miranda screamed as she tried kicking the creature’s mouth.
“Oh god oh god!” Thea shouted doing her best to hang on to both the door handle and her son in the highchair.
“Do something Thea!” Miranda shouted.
“I’m trying,” said Thea, “I just got to get Chris out first.”
“He’ll be fine, just get to me!” said Miranda. Suddenly Thea could see Miranda loose her grip and let go of the couch.
“Miranda!” she shouted as she watched in horror as Miranda slid straight into the jaws of the shark!
