Catapult – Daily Prompt


Where could she be? Would he be able to see her again? How could he lose her suddenly? Martin couldn’t comprehend what has just happened. One minute they were talking animatedly, arguing at times and laughing the next minute. It was always like that with Amanda, full of drama and action. But it was the first time that she disappeared quickly.

Out of the blue, a grasshopper flew on Martin’s wrist watch. It was an olive green one with black markings which resemble chevrons. It was just there. Did Amanda turn into a grasshopper, he pondered. He observed the grasshopper’s eyes, which were coloured to blend into its environment. He reminisced Amanda’s big brown eyes, always curious, always excited and always sparkling.

Martin tried to pick the grasshopper up. It spat a brown liquid to him, then catapulted up and flew off quickly. “Wait,” yelled Martin. But the grasshopper jumped and flickered away, never to be seen again.
