A Pirates Life for me

Cordula has always lived her life as a pirate..with a twist, she is the daughter of Poseidon. This makes her a powerful sea sorceress. Having a dad that is a King has many advantages, there are also many disadvantages. Cordula has to fight for her sea as many people want to take it over. Cordula is a Gods daughter, but she is also a pirates daughter. Which means that half of her life is spent aboard ships along. How is Cordula going to keep her empire?

1. Betrothed

"Cordula, come her" my father shouted down the long coral hallway "quickly" he was so impatient. I swam slowly down the long hallway just to annoy him, "yes father?" I asked  in the squeakiest, high pitched , girly voice known to merman. As I walked towards my fathers gold throne I noticed there were four mermen  standing next to my father, "hello darling" he said "how was your trip to see your mother?" he was trying to be nice but I could see that he had no interest in my fantastic trip to see his ex-wife. "It was good" I tried not to make it sound like I had too much or little fun. 

"I would like to discuss with you daughter..." he stumbled "the arr..the arrangement of..of your betrothal"  anger started to bubble inside me. I turned around and started to walk back to my room "Cordula, come back here at once and hear me out"  I stopped at my father plea

"Go on then" I still did not want to hear it

"The Aquatic law says you have to be married to rule the ocean" Father said "you have to marry my daughter, I know you desp-"

"NO! I will not marry a man I do not love, I will go through with this" I shouted at the top of my voice, my temper rising with every word, I did not care if it was not lady like.

"Cordula!" I could hear my fathers anger as he spoke "don't you dare raise your voice, you will marry one of these men and that is final!" I instantly turned away, and swam back to my room. How dare he try and marry me off to a snobby rich merman, I may not know them and I probably did  not want to.

A few minutes later I heard a knock at my door "Cordula?" I did not answer, so they let themselves in. I looked up from crying into my pillow to see my old friend Henry standing in my doorway, a look of sympathy crossed his face as he saw my tear stained face. "You know you have to marry one of those snobby rich merman" Henry whispered as I nodded, he embraced me in a hug. "Cordula, if you don't then you won't be able to rule the sea and your throne will be handed over to you Uncle Arthur" I nodded again

"I can't bring myself to henry I just can't" I whimpered

"I will try to talk some sense into the council" Henry said, which brought a smile to my face.

"thank you Henry, your a really great friend" I managed to squeak out "I will go talk to my dad as well" He got up kissed me on the forehead and left.
