10. He Needs Threat Lessons For His Birthday

I found myself in a deep sleep. I was in a room of darkness in my mind. At first I was scared, but then I relized that It was just my head. I shouted,” Wake up!” to myself.

“You shall not!” said a booming voice, echoing through my brain.

“ Woah!” I exclaimed. Who was that? I asked myself. I tried again. “WAKE UP!” I screamed.

“Do that again and I will let you sleep underneath the horses!” the voice yelled, angrier now.
It scared me so much that I did a backwards summer salt. “ I will retrieve you from your sleep when we are ready for you.” The voice said a little bit calmer now.

Who on the earth was that? The question nagged me. Who has a voice like that? Who says a threat like,” I will let you sleep underneath the horses”? This past week, there had been so many questions gone unanswered that I could imagine my head swelling. Why couldn’t somebody just sit down with me and answer all of them? All of a sudden, the tears that I had been keeping in came out. All at once. So I knealt down on my knees, in this dark space in my head, and cried my eyes out.

In about two hours, I felt a tug on my body inside my head. Of course, not sure what it was, I refused. “ NOW you can wake up!” The voice boomed. I let myself be pulled into something. Then, I woke up. I was in a four-poster canope bed. The bed spread was a deep royal violet. I was dressed in a white nightgown and my long blond hair was wet as if I’d taken a shower. The walls were a pearly white stone. When I looked outside the arched, wide, window, I didn’t belive what I saw. The big room was about 10 feet of the bottom. Sea weed and underwater flowers and coral grew in a garden below. I rubbed my eyes, thinking I was dreaming. If my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me, I ‘d say I was under the sea!

I knew that I was breathing in air, so I suspected that the room I was in was water proof.” Beautiful view ,isn’t it?” the same voice from my sleep boomed from the corner. There stood a tall man. His long black hair was braided and running down his back. The man was blind in one eye and had a scar on his cheek. His cold, stony, gaze was enough for me to wish I was still asleep.

“ Wh-wh- o-a-are y-y-ou?” I studered. Instead of answering, the man said,” Now, isn’t this better than sleeping under a horse?” Then he smiled. Surprizingly, his smile was warm.

Before I could demand an explaination, Abitha burted though the door. Or should I say half of Abitha. She was wearing a blue t-shirt that said,’ I feel like fish tonight’. That was the normal part. The wired part is that she had the tail of a fish! The bottom half of her was a scaly silver blue tail. “ Woah!” I exclaimed. I jumped on top of the bed and stood up. I grabbed a lamp that was on the nightable. I poited it at Abitha-fish.

By then, Abitha had changed back to normal legs in jeans. I guess because there was no water for her to swim in.

Abitha looked at the man unthreatened and said pracaly,” You haven’t told her yet, have you?”

“ Me? I thought the Lord was supost to do that!” He defened himself innocently. Abitha rolled her eyes.

“ Abitha?” I managed to squeak out.

“ Oh, yeah,sorry, Pearl. Call me Silverfish when we’re in the sea.” Abitha said.

“Okay, you owe me a major explaination.” I said.

“ I guess I do,” she said,” First of all, this is Gwolf.” Abitha said nodding her head toward the man.

“ I promose, Pearl, that all of your questions will be anwered soon. Come with me.”

Then she walked (Swam) though the doorway. Then I followed her. As soon as I stepped into the narrow,brightly lighted hallway, the water came at me. I couldn’t breathe. I tried to scream,”Air!” to Abitha, but all that came from my mouth was bubbles. By then I was frantic. My lungs where bursting. Abitha had noticed me.
