The Shores

It seems to Pearl that nothing she ever does it right. She is made fun of at school. But Pearl's world turns upside down and sideways when she meets a strange girl. The girl helps Pearl discover her past, present and destiny. Can Pearl discover what she was born to do--in time to save her kingdom?


25. Aww, Sister Love!

"You KNOW?" I asked in awe, "How? When?"

"When dad sent me away, he would send letters. He told me about you, and how you were cursed. Since then, I disided to train to be a Protecter, not the Princess. I left that slot for you." Abitha got a far away look in her eyes.

"What is a Protecter?" I asked.

"Someone who protects the magic. But since it was not found, I protect the Decendents."

"Okay," I said, "Go on."

Abitha took a deep breath. "In the letters, he explained to me about the magic and Kior. He also told me about Briallen."

"Please, tell me about her." I begged Abitha. I was hungry for info.

" It didn't say much. All Dad said was that Mom had another baby girl, and that they named her Briallen. They didn't want her to be cursed too, even though you were already. Dad said that they didn't want to take any chances. Where they sent her, I don't know. That was also the letter where he explained what mom had to do. Dad said that she had to go find the magic, and that she wouldn't be back for a while. She never did come back." Tears sprang from Abitha's eyes.

"But why does it have to be me?" I asked, "There are two more girls that could find the magic. Why me?"

"You are forgetting the prophecy," Abitha pointed out, "It was given to you, and to you only."

"But how was it only given to me?" I said.
"You were the only daughter in the room."

Oh. I made a mental note to ask Uncle. He said that he was there when the prophecy was given.
"Why didn't you tell me?" I asked Abitha.

" I know it's stupid, but I thought that maybe if I pretended that you weren't a relative of mine, I wouldn't have thought you as one." Abitha sighed, " And when you went to find the magic..." She stopped and looked away from me. "I already lost Mom. I couldn't let you go too."

"Abitha," I said, hugging her, "I have to do it. It is what we have to do. Mom had to do it, and so do I. Mom wouldn't have gone if she didn't think it was right. I feel the same way."
"I know," Abitha sniffled, "Shores like us can't afford to be selfish."

I smiled. "Sel-fish. Get it?" I joked.

Abitha smiled back. "Good one." but then she sobered. "We should probally tell uncle."

"Yeah." I agreed.

We swam out Abitha's door, hand in hand.
