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?


10. Merry - 5

All this was very confusing.

Of course, it had been that way since I had arrived here. But now it was even more so. Now, I was doubting the fact that this was a dream. I had pinched myself hundreds of times. Plus, this was a lot more vivid than any dream I had ever had.

I'd considered the possibility of something whacking my head during the storm, and I had gone into a coma or I was just unconscious. But I didn't think comas or unconsciousness were like this. I hadn't experienced either, but I knew that much. Plus, I would have felt the impact of something hitting my head in the first place. 

So I was stuck here for now, and the big question appearing to me over and over again was How was I supposed to defeat a dragon? I didn't even know what my powers were. I couldn't just go switching from tail to legs and hope the dragon would freak out.

And what was the Aglaia supposed to do? What was Ebony's role in this? I felt sorry for her. Here she was, coming to this lake for peace and quiet, and I had to burst out of it like a human fountain, sending her normal life scattering, leaving her to pick up the pieces.

So I decided that I could at least be friendly.

Walking to her village, I began to talk to her about my world, Earth. Our history. What people were like. What we did. I thought I might be boring her, but I just had to hear myself talking, telling myself that my own world was still where I belonged, was still part of who I was.

I just had to believe that I could go back.

But what if I couldn't?

I was pondering this when Ebony gently touched my arm. I looked up, startled, and I realized that I had trailed off in the middle of an explanation.


"It is all right." Ebony's smile was gentle and shy. "I was just wondering... could thou teach me thy language?"


"Thy language. Thou doth speak the same as I, but with different, stranger words. Could thou possibly teach me these words?"

"Oh! Of... of course." I hadn't anticipated this. "Right, so, the first thing you have to do is replace thou, thee, and thy with you and your..."

I began to teach Ebony modern English, and in return she taught me about he world. We stopped walking for a while and sat down underneath a tree. We were probably there for an hour, just talking, laughing and basically becoming friends.

We completely lost track of time.

Suddenly, there was a humungous flash of lightning and, immediately afterwards, a massive crack of thunder. Ebony and I screamed. We jumped up and ran in the direction of the village. Rain wasn't falling yet, but we knew it was only a matter of time.

For as we entered Ebony's village a few minutes later, we were greeted by a crack of thunder, pouring rain and a loud, cackling laugh.

Ebony's fear was mirrored in my face.

"The Terror," she whispered.

I nodded.

This was impossible.
