A Mastodon writing prompt story. These are science fiction short stories (usually 480 characters or less), based on an image generated by EW Doc Parris using MidJourney.
The stories are originally posted on Mastodon via my personal account.

We hadn’t seen any sign of our quarry for months now. I was beginning to think we had lost them for good, and that no new opportunity was going to swim past us to salvage this trip.
“Cap’n, it’s gone. Time to move on.”
“Negative, it’s close, I can feel it. It will taste our harpoon, and it will be out of our lives.”
I just shook my head. This sure did sound familiar, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. I still hadn’t figure out what a Pequod was.
