See the Flood, Stop the Flood – Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers – 07/10/17

FFfAW071017 A “Herculean effort” is what Damian used to describe what transpired that day. Wallace simply could only squeeze the word “Insane!” from his lips. The legend began on that July day, but there was no way to gauge how long this one would endure.

Matt was just a regular guy, who put one leg in his jeans at a time every day. But he had seen the future first. He was the only one to recognize what everyone saw. There would have been a massive flood, sure to kill too many citizens of his town. But Matt was alert, on guard and curious. When he saw the unusual way the protective barrier looked he began to ask questions.

Immediately dismissed as pesky, he endured. Only when he caught the attention of Hiram Todd, the dyke inspector did his words find the right home.
