Summary: Krakens can have vacations too.

Humans were not the only ones that took a summer vacation. The kraken sat still in the shallowest part of the water that he dared, hiding the visible parts of himself out of the water amongst the tall rocks and waited. His long tentacles stretched towards the shoreline.

He watched the children play and the more daring beach goers wade out into the cold water, only to rush back in. Every once in a while, someone more adventurous would go out a bit farther, like the woman he was watching now. She nervously and slowly waded her way out into chest deep water. The kraken watched her slowly relax, and start bobbing with the gentle waves. She made a few false starts to swim, but seemed to think better of it and wanted to keep her feet in the sand. He heard her friends on the beach call out to her and he saw her wave back.

While she was laughing and engaged in her conversation, he made his move. Slowly, so as not to bring attention the changes in the water, he brought his tentacle closer and closer, until he dragged the very tip of it across her foot. The woman screamed and rushed towards the shore. He could hear her back on the beach, telling her friends something about a sea monster, and their laughter. Their voices carried on the summer breeze, telling her it was just some seaweed and not to be such a scaredy cat. He mentally chuckled to himself and scanned the shore once again, until a couple surfers waxing up their boards caught his eye. It was going to be a fun summer.
