31. Pre-Coronation

Before I went to dad, I swam to my room to pick up something. I changed into human form. I looked in the mirror. Abitha was right--my hair was still the way Abitha put it. I spotted my locket sitting on my dresser. I put it on and looked in the mirror. Suddenly, Dad appeared behind me.

"Ah!" I screamed, before I realized it was just dad. I let out a breath, "Jeez, Dad, you scared me!"

"Sorry." he apologized. "So, today's the big day, isn't it?"

I sighed. "Yeah."

" You are going to be the princess."

"I think we already went over this, Dad."

" You are going to rule along side your uncle."

"Yes." I was tired this. "Yes I am."

"I'm surprised that you are so COOL about this." Dad said.

"Don't try to be--how did hey put it in your day?--hip." I giggled.

He cracked a smile. "In my day," he went on, " I did everything I could to give your mother the power after we were married. She didn't believe in the man getting all the power ecepsally if he was not of noble blood." He got a funny look in his eyes, almost like he was remembering something, " but soon we moved to the human world. We wanted our children to be safe. We gave the throne to your uncle and aunt."

"And now," I cut into his flashback, " we came back to rule again."

He faced me. "You came back to rule again."

I stood up. "Are you ready? We should go soon." Dad was wearing a tuxedo, and his shaggy brown hair was gelled back, away from his face.

"Yes. Let's go."

I took his arm and we headed for the throne room.
