Here’s my contribution to this week’s Monday’s Finish the Story. And yes, the names are inspired by the Penguins of Madagascar.. 🙂
Finish the story begins with “When the team heard the dam explode, they knew they had limited time to make it to safety.”
“Go go go!”
Skipper turned quickly to look behind him as they raced to get clear of the deluge. Too late. “Brace!”
Throwing down their useless oars they hunkered down, head between knees, as the wall of water hit them. The raft spun out of control.
They slammed into a partially submerged rock, throwing Kowolski into the water. His wet fingers scrambled to grip onto the raft, but the current pulled him under in seconds.
The sound of the waterfall became a deafening roar as they raced toward the edge of the river. The raft flew over the edge, dipping into the foaming rush of water as its helpless occupants were flung out to their fate.
Time slowed down for the three bodies as they fell, arms flailing, lungs burning, to the bottom of the rainbow, and into the arms of the awaiting rescue crew.
