3. Shark Bay-Part Three

****

The early morning sun drifted down across the deep waters off Shark Bay. It was Friday, November 24, 2017. Stella Kincaid gazed at her boyfriend Allen Moss. Her lined face was due to age. She looked around to see sailors on board their ships...and boats. Allen gripped his fishing line in his right hand. "It's going to be a long day if you're fishing like that", Stella said. She had long, blonde hair, blue eyes, and petite. She applied sun screen across her hands, arms, feet, nose, and face; she waded in the cold water. By nine o'clock AM, she smiled at Allen. Seconds later, the shark swam towards them. It moved to the rhythm of the splashing feet; it opened its huge mouth. Its razor sharp teeth bit into Allen's right thigh. He screamed. Then, as the blood spilled into the cold water, Stella watched in terror as her boyfriend died five minutes' later. "​Help me! Help me!​", she yelled. Then the shark bit into her left leg with its sharp teeth; her colour drained out of her face...and she died as well from her severe injuries. It was 9:04 AM.

Cody Shade stared at Madison Carter. He grabbed a copy of '​Stinger', the 1988 science fiction classic by Robert R. McCammon. In Shark Bay, there wasn't a killer alien on the loose; there was a giant shark on the loose. A forty meter long monster that wasn't a rogue; it was something too horrible to imagine. The nightmarish terror had killed before; and it would kill again. Cody was seventeen. He had short, blonde hair, blue eyes, and average height. He intended to enrol in the Ellis Island Naval Academy next year once he turned eighteen. He shook his head. The Internet reports of a Great White Shark that was forty meters long was fanciful. Suddenly he heard the sound of a jeep coming towards him. He saw Thomas Andrews, an African-American student at Shark Bay University. Andrews, who was eighteen, smiled at him. "There's a group of students competing at the Christmas Charity Games", he said. Cody nodded. He was eager to compete. Suddenly he saw Amy Shoal smiling at him. "Everyone's talking about the shark". Cody nodded. He shook his head. "So, is the competition over?", he asked her. "I don't know. Bryon Marks, the President of the Games, has said that it's over for 2017. It'll resume in 2018, only if there's no more danger from sharks", she said. And she sighed. "Come on, let's go swimming at Shoal's Reef", Cody told her. "Great!", she said. And the three teenagers smiled, as they had something to do for the rest of the day.

Peter Daniels awoke from a fitful sleep. "What's wrong?", Maddie asked him. "Nothing", he lied. She gripped her red nightdress with her small hands; she was eager to believe that her husband was sure that the killer shark that had taken control off Shark Bay, was preying on his mind. "You have stop it", she said. He wrapped his strong arms around her small waist; he then kissed her with passion. Then, after the embrace, he knew she was right; she was always right. "Let's stop the monster". And she nodded...then she knew that time was short before more locals were dead.

The shark had swam for overnight. It hadn't eaten since it had ate the whale yesterday. It focused on Shoal Reef; it had swam towards the Lighthouse. It sensed movement in the deep water. Its black eyes saw the other sharks; its huge mouth swallowed a lot of water. It swam towards a female Grey Nurse shark. It didn't kill it. It mated with the shark; it would acknowledge to the other sharks in Shark Bay that it was the dominant shark off Ellis Island. Once everything was finished, it was more protective of its mate. As she recovered, it watched the Great White Shark headed towards the ocean...and towards more food.

Cody noticed the large sign. "​Shoal Reef-4 miles to the left​". He saw the water. He swam in his blue shorts towards the Lighthouse; he checked for other sharks in the area. Madison was wearing a blue bikini. Thomas wore his red shorts. "Look! There's a ship. It looks like it's abandoned". Cody glanced at his friends. By ten-thirty AM, there was a deadly silence. "There! It's Brody Clements' ship. It looks like he's inside". Cody shivered. He didn't think Brody was dead. He swam towards the bow. Seconds later, he saw Brody's body. Huge bite marks were on his left thigh. He had died from massive blood loss. "Call the police!", Cody shouted. And he shuddered, as they left the area before they all got into trouble.

Peter drove his black car towards the marina. He shivered. Suddenly he saw Hall Porter, the Head of the Marina, wave at him. "The shark is near Shoal Reef. That's the info I got. If it mates with a female shark, it could be dangerous". Peter nodded. "Apparently it's forty meters long". Hall nodded. "Some sharks are bigger than the shark that's around these waters". Peter shook his head. He noticed several boats and ships that were moored; he was thinking about Maddie. "Let's catch the shark", he said. And he shivered.

The shark swam towards Shoal's Reef. It sensed movement. Its black eyes focused on the other prey. Then it saw several other sharks. When it moved at seventy miles per hour, the other sharks scattered everywhere. It ignored the electronic fence; it moved towards the Lighthouse. But, before it could do anything, it saw Peter Daniels who was on board ​The Saviour V ship. "It's there! Over there!", ​Hall shouted. Peter grabbed a air rifle in his right hand. He pressed the button...and fired.

The shark ducked its head. It wasn't hurt. It was angry. It opened its mouth. Then as it damaged the ship's bow with its sharp teeth, Hall screamed. "No! No!". Peter attempted to fire again. But he was off-balance. The air rifle fell into the ocean...and wasn't seen again. The shark swam away from Shoal Reef at over one hundred miles per hour. And, by Midday, the nightmare was over.
