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?
