Skipping Rocks

The two children walked by the creek, picking up rocks and throwing them into the water.  “Did you hear that Billy?”

Billy stopped and asked, “What sound John?”

John turned and said, “The thunk when I threw in that last rock.  I know is hit something.”

“Where did you throw it?”

“Up ahead that way,” he said pointing to the area of bushes at the edge of the creek.

The two boys walked close to the edge of the creek and stopped suddenly.  Grabbing a stick Billy probed at the item the water had washed up, and they both screamed.
