Jaws Fanfiction: Jaws:Unleashed - 7. The Angry Armada
Amity BeachFriday, July 1st.8:00 a.m.
Mr. Bard collected water samples on the beach.He looked over and saw a sleek, gray fin tear the surface of the water.It swam around, devouring kids, adults, the elderly, and animals.Then it turned toward Mr. Bard and ate him.”Mr., are you okay?”, said a voice.
Mr. Bard snapped back into reality.He was on the beach with three kids, no more than 8, standing over him.He was flat on his back, shaking in terror.It was all a hallucination.
“Mr?”, said the voice, coming from one of the children.”I’m okay. Listen kids.”, Mr. Bard answered. He swept his arm, signaling for them to come closer.”I know you’ve all heard this a million times, but listen. Sharks are in the water. Well, the ocean. Spread the word, don’t go in the ocean. Go in pools, Slip n’ Slides, play with sprinklers…just don’t go into the water. OK?”, Mr. Bard said.”Why not? Arn’t all the big monsters out in the deep water?”, asked another child.More kids gathered around him, interested in what he was talking about.But the word monsters got his attention. After the incident at the Amity Island Aquarium, many people started turning against sharks. Now, Amity Island was the Shark Hunting Capital of the East Coast.”Well, not exactly. Some big…monsters…are starting to come closer to the beach. All I’m saying is don’t go into the ocean. Pools are okay. Just not the ocean.”, Mr. Bard answered.
Suddenly, parents started coming over.They took the children’s places as if guarding them from a rouge animal.”Listen, mister. I don’t know who the hell you are, but don’t poison the kid’s minds! They’re scared enough of the water as it is now.”, said a man.The parents hearded the kids away. Some looked back at Mr. Bard with hope in their eyes.”Don’t worry, Mister. Somebody will come along for you some day.”, said a young 5-year old with a British accent.However, as Mr. Bard looked at his reflection in the water, he began to think that his only companion in a few years would be Death.
Town HallFriday, July 1st3:00 p.m.
“Attention! Attention, please!”, yelled the Mayor, banging his fist on the Council Table.The Town Hall was filled with people from all over Amity.Sitting at the Council Table were the five most powerful.Sheriff Joey Shaw: The Amity Island Police Sheriff.Dr. Robert Jones: The Amity Island Chief Doctor.Mr. Simon Fisher: The Amity Island Financial Advisor.Ms. Sarah Feltcher: The Amity Island Marine Expert.And of course, Mayor Larry Nathanial Hartman: The Amity Island Mayor.
Everyone on Amity, from the lowliest farmer to the second-most powerful person, shut up.”Good, now let’s get down to business. Ms. Feltcher, if you will.”, said the Mayor.”Thank you, Larry. I am happy to report that the shark troubles are over. Sharks are now retreating into the Atlantic Ocean.”, she said, smiling. Of course, everyone cheered. And of course, one man didn’t.”I wouldn’t be so sure of that.”, said Micheal Brody.
The Mayor’s face went red as blood rushed to it. That idiot!, he thought, He’s gonna frighten everyone! Again!”Mr. Mayor, Ms. Feltcher, if everything is okay…what about the explosion at the docks that killed over 300? Or the Aqurarium disaster? How about the oil spill?”, asked Brody. The Mayor flushed a deeper shade of red, anger taking him over.A woman stood up.”How dare you? My husband worked on those platforms!”, she screamed at a thunderstruck Brody.More people stood.”My son died in that Aqurarium! He was only eight!””I’ll have you know that we all suffered from that explosion.””The entire South Beach is polluted!””While we all suffer, your doing just fine!”Brody, upset that everyone turned on him, sank down into his bench.Just then, Bard burst through the door.
“He’s telling the truth!”, he screamed.The Mayor, acting like he saw a ghost, turned white and stared in horror.It can’t be! He died!, the Mayor thought.Everyone looked at Mr. Bard, awestruck. Brody didn’t have a clue why.”Oh, yes, ladies and gentlemen. The Brody family, once again, has been proven right.”, Bard said, holding an object in his hands.Brody saw it.A testing tube. The fluid inside was pink.”There are two hundred sharks in these waters. Anyone who dosen’t agree, talk to the man himself.Steven Shaw, the CEO of EnvironPlus, walked in behind Bard.
“I’m sorry, Mayor. But it is for the best.”, Shaw said. The Mayor’s face flushed, drained of all color.”Last month, a large cave was discovered under our Mining Tower.Inside was enough things to make Amity Island rich beyond it’s wildest dreams. But, the discovery came with a price.200 Charcarodon Megolodons, sharks long believed to be extinct, were in that cave. They were juviniles and adolecents, young creatures just hitting mating age.But now they have escaped, realised by a tremor. Two have already died from these beasts.”, Shaw explained to a terrified town.”And one is already pregnant.”, said Bard.The whole Town Hall exploded in a tidal wave of frightened screams.
“ORDER! ORDER!”, bellowed the Mayor, somehow getting his color back.”I have kept something from you all also.”, the Mayor explained. Everyone stared at him. Waiting, listening for the secret.”I didn’t want to cause a panic, so I called the Coast Guard. As I speak, the Coast Guard Ice Cutter U.S.S. Norfolk is heading this way.”, the Mayor said.The people, Brody, Bard, and Shaw included, smiled. The Hall erupted into an avalanche of cheers for the Mayor.
The Next Morning…People from all over Amity got in boats, helicopters, and grabbed every gun they could. They hoped in their vehicle of choice and headed out. The bounty on Jaws was $1,000,000. The female, $4,000,000. The U.S.S. Norfolk would be at Amity in 2 hours.People cheered, and the newspaper headlines certainly gave the fleet a great name.THE ANGRY ARMADA SETS OUT TO DESTROY DEVIL FISH!Female to be captured alive!
In the middle of the water, two Sports Fishing Boats sat in wait.”You think we’ll get ’em?”, asked the driver to his buddies.”Of course we will! There’s gota be tons of chum in the-OH SHIT! THERE THEY ARE!”, a fisher screamed, pointing a finger in the direction of two dorsel fins streaking through the surface.
