17. Teenage Years Fights

I went to my room. I changed back into my human form since my room is full of air. I tossed myself on to my white canopy bed.

I thought about the war, and about the fact I didn't know how to fight. I thought about how my dad was the actual king.

Wait! Dad! Where WAS he? I hadn't seen him in a while. I went back into the hallway and the familiar feeling of being thrown into water. I changed in to my mer form again, and quickly swam down the hallway.

I swam down the long, hallway, closing and opening doors, searching for my dad. My dad wasn't inside. At the fifty-sixth door, my dad came out, just as I was passing.

I hugged him. His dark brown hair, was short and bed ragged. His green
eyes were kind, but, sharp like my uncle's.

"Bedhead," I teased him as we pulled a part.

"I haven't seen you in a while," Dad said. "Let's go for a walk." I took his hand and we walked.

"Dad, why didn't you tell me you were king in the first place?" I asked, seeing if he would go all 'how did you know that?!" on me. He didn't.

"Oh. I don't know Pearl." he sighed.
"Dad! You can't hand everything down to me!" I exclaimed, "Is that what you are
trying to do? Make me responsible for everything and everyone? I'm only twelve!"

"That is why we have to train you. You not ready. By the way, you're eleven, turning twelve in a week." Dad said.

"In case you didn't know--wait--you shouldn't know, because you are no longer responsible for your kingdom!" I said, angry now.
" Whatever it is, it's not my problem. It's your uncle's and your's. And," dad paused for a moment, remembering his fatherly instincts, " don't talk to me in that tone."

"There is going to be war." I said, and swam away. I swam all the way to my room. I couldn't believe my dad . He-he- uhgggggggg! I thought some mean thoughts about him, then fell asleep.
