Child of the Seas

Ebony and Merry live two very different lives in separate worlds. Neither has ever considered the possibility of the other's existence. But now the bridges between the worlds are weakening.
An ancient prophecy snatches Merry from her world and brings her to Ebony. Now, the two girls must save Ebony's world from a terror as old as the prophecy, which is destroying the world and the worlds connected to it.
Countless lives and worlds are resting on the girls' shoulders... but will Ebony and Merry be able to save them?


6. Merry - 3

The storm was still raging on when I felt a curious need to go outside.

Of course, I immediately thought crazy. Why would I want to go outside into a massive thunderstorm, of all places?

But the feeling won out and so, feeling weirder than I ever had in my life, I snuck downstairs, past Sadler's room and Mom in the kitchen, and went outside.

Immediately, a wave of water hit me in the face. The wind was so strong that it blew my coat away and tugged hair from my scalp. he rain was so thick that it was like swimming.

But my instincts were telling me to go on, so I began to walk forward-- or, at least, in the direction that I THOUGHT was forward. I couldn't tell. There was wind and water everywhere. I could've sworn that my feet left the ground at least once, but I didn't know which way was up or down anymore.

This was one hell of a storm.

I was definitely panicking by now. I tried to turn around and go back to the house, but I couldn't seem to use my legs anymore. I didn't know if I was standing or not. I couldn't see anything besides water. It was like I was in a pool, swimming-- but for my life.

Suddenly, there was only water around me. I tried to breathe, but water flowed into my my mouth and I choked. I was certainly in some sort of pool by now. A pool... in the middle of the air, in a thunderstorm.

This is crazy.

I was beginning to accept the fact that I was probably going to die. I mean, how could anyone survive this? It shouldn't even exist. I wondered what had driven me outside in the first place. My instinct was no longer nagging at me. I knew I had just imagined it. I had, technically, just killed myself.

My lungs were screaming for me to breathe, breathe! I couldn't move. I knew I was going to black out soon. I thought, I hope Mom doesn't give Sadler my authentic Star Wars lightsaber when I'm gone.

That should have been my last thought. I felt myself becoming somehow lighter, and the wind easing off. If this was Death, it didn't seem so bad.

But, of course, ancient prophecies don't let peaceful deaths happen.

I suddenly found myself half out of the water in the middle of a lake, staring at a girl with ice-white skin and smoke-black hair.

And with a scaly tail instead of legs.
