It looked so innocent, a face made of shells, rocks, and sea glass, but it was a greedy thing, luring tide-walkers to add their finds to it.
When a new photo appears each week on the blog Grandma's Goulash, microfiction fans are invited to write a short story about it: either 140 words, or 140 characters including spaces and punctuation. My submission, above, is 140 characters, and includes the optional word of the week, which Grandma's daughter Calico supplies before seeing the photo. There are no extra points for using the word. In fact, there are no points at all, but it is great fun.

Thanks, Grandma, and thanks, Calico!
