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?


5. What is the Definition of Crazy? Oh Yeah. Abitha.

A strange feeling came over me.. calmness. The same feeling I felt during the smoke incident.
Amazed, I stood there on the spot as I watched the girl walk slowly toward me. She had brown hair that had silver highlights. Her hair reached just past her shoulders. The dress she wore was silver blue and it looked like it was made of… wait, was that scales? Her skin was tinted with glowing green. Or maybe it was from the light.

I don’t know how I was ok with all of this. It was weird. If today was a normal day, I would have screamed and run away by now. But today was not a normal day at all.

The mystery girl smiled. What she said next made no sence to me at all. ”C’mon Morlinda! Let’s go! The sukshi are coming! The King is very sick and powerless.”

Three words: WHAT THE HECK? My head was spinning. Morlinda? Sukshi? The King? ”Who are you?” I asked the girl.

“ Yeah, I suppose you don’t know who I am. The important thing is that I know who YOU are. My land name is Abitha.” said the girl, who had a very strange name. But what can I say? A strange girl will have a strange name.

“Abitha. What an–um- unusual name.”

The girl named Abitha raised her eyebrows. ”What did you mean by ’land name’? I asked. Might as well get some answers.

“ Oh, you know silly. C’mon we are running out of time!” Abitha said “ Oh, you don’t know do you?” she said reading my expression. “ Your father never told you about the Shores?” Abitha cried out.

“ No, I don’t have a clue on what you are talking about.” I said, confused.

“ If your father should pick one person to know it should be you out of every one.” Abitha fumed.
”Okay, I ‘l tell you. Definitely, not all of it though. We Shores have two first names. One sea and one land. My land name is Abitha. My sea one, Silverfish.” Abitha said in a rush.” Your sea name is Pearl. Your land one is Morlinda.”
