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?


33. Party's Over

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------My uncle stood, cleared his throat, and spoke, " As many of you know, The Evil Lord's Minions are coming, asking for a battle. Which we will give them. Our new Princess must start her journey to find a cure for her curse, but we also need her here to fight."

Me, fighting in a real battle? No way. I could see Abitha, maybe, but me, no, no, no.
After my uncle's speech, everyone transfered to the Ball Room. Apperently we were going to party.

I scanned the hall. Tables with platters of food lined up the marble walls. In a part of the room, there was set bales with white table clothes. In another part of the room, next to the dance floor, there was a small stadge was set up. Shore people with many intraments sat there, playing. There was violins, cellos, flutes, harps, you name it!

Everyone crowded the dance floor, gracefully dancing with partners. The music was very enchanting, and the dancing beautiful, but it was all to eighteen-hundreds-ish. It seemed to me that everyone was dancing except me. I mean, even little Amilia danced on her father's feet.

I scanned the room again. Ah ha! Target spotted! Abitha swam next to the punch. I quickly met her. She was wearing a silver sleeveless sparkly gown that reached the floor. She had pulled her hair back into a French Knot, framing her face.

"Abitha, you look great!" I told her.

"A break from the regular tshirt, huh?" she shrugged of the complement, but I knew that she was touched.

"Why aren't you dancing?" I asked.

"No, no, no, Pearl. I don't dance. Besides, I don't have a partner." She stared at the people. Suddenly she giggled. "Look at that!" She pointed to the edge of the crowd.

I followed her gaze. Dad and Dorie were walzing together! Abitha and I shared a laughing fit.

The simpony finished their song and everyone clapped. When they started up again, I offered Abitha my hand. "Care to dance?" I said in a husky male voice.

She giggled and cursyed, "It would be my honor, fine sir."

Half laughing, we mad our way to the dance floor and was soon randomly swimming to the music. We were all over the place, twirling our way through the crowd. Then, accidentally, I stepped on someone's foot. I tripped, and fell forward.

The Shore offered me his hand up. It was Perri. "We have to stop hurting each other," he said, pulling me up.

"Yeah, that would probally be best." I blushed, "Well, see you later." I started swimming away when I turned around again to face him, "Sorry for stepping on your foot."

"No problem. I'm sorry for not believing you when you said you were Pearl Morlinda." He said shyly.

Oh yeah! The coronation was probally a big surprise for him! I smiled and swam away to meet Abitha at the samwishes.

I learned that night that Shore parties are he longest lasting parties ever. They last as long as you wan them to. They end when everyone goes home. Abitha and I danced the night away, not keeping track of the time. It was about five o'clock in the morning when a soldier came rushing in and stopped the orchestra.

Uncle stood on the stadge, "Everyone do not panic!" he shouted across the hall, " Everyone to your battle stations!"
