Prompt #61

If you wish to do this as a spontaneous exercise, don't look at the word until you're ready to write (I recommend having Write or Die open in another tab). If you're going to mull over the word and write later, peek away.

Once you've completed your ficlet, please either comment here, or post a link to it, if you're posting on your own journal. Feel free to reference the community or number of the prompt in your outside posts, but if you use the actual word, please put it under a cut to avoid spoiling others, should they want to write spontaneously.

Today's word is: mosaic

If you've missed a word or twelve and would like to catch up, please see the Master List.

Title: Fall Into the Sea
Original: standalone
Wordcount: 1,025
Summary: This is a story that really wants to be a different story altogether, but I didn't realize what it wanted to be until about two paragraphs from the end. Also, I ran way over the time limit. *headdesk* Anyway, it's kind of a fairy tale, as much as it's anything other than a mess.

Once upon a time in a kingdom by the sea, there lived a girl who had no family.
