The Deep Ones by PaperandDust The Deep Ones by PaperandDust
______________________________________________

The Deep ones

That was all they were known as... The people of the island had never seen them, except for glimpses - slithering shadows in the dark - but they knew they were there.

They had always been there.

Sometimes, people would disappear... heading off into the night, looking for lost items - never to return. People learnt never to search.
They just went missing too, if they did.
It was said that the deep ones were jealous of the people... That humans had something they could never possess, so they took them- hoping to gain it.
All the people truly knew was that it was only a matter of time before someone else was taken... Mostly the children.
And when they were...

More of The Deep Ones would appear.

Pretty much the theme song for the piece:

This one got first in the Shaun Tan young artists award competition. Quite chuffed - He was such a gentleman!
