Prompt for February 17, 2015

Complete the short story / flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

I stood in the middle of the street leading down to the wharf and saw everyone rushing by me, heading for the centre of town.  I tried to get them to stop, to tell me what was going on, but they just screamed and ran by me.  A young girl, no more than ten or twelve ran into me full tilt when she glanced back at the harbour and swerved into me.  We both fell, but I made sure that she didn’t hit the ground as hard as I did.  She looked at me, screamed something so shrilly it almost hurt to listen to, and then ran off with everyone else.  What the hell is a Kraken?

Post a link to the story in the comments.
