Heir of Nature

Miri is the legitimate, biological daughter of Mother Nature and Father Time. Of course, she is only just figuring this out. A jealous family acquaintance comes into the picture and sets his mind on getting rid of the Miri. She must train quickly in order to be able to defend herself when the need arises. ^^I wrote this story when I was twelve and it makes me laugh to go back and reminisce^^


4. "He Knows"

After Rosette came, training picked up speed. In just 2.5 weeks, I was talking to animals, creating a small rainstorm, growing trees, etc. I had already moved on to the more dangerous elements of nature, such as volcanoes, when it started.

One day, I was creating a three inch tornado and trying to destroy a miniature farm (we’re talking 1 square foot) for a lesson. Mom and Rosette were watching. Suddenly, my dad burst in, looking dazed, “he knows” I heard him mumble in my mom’s ear. Mother stood up and looked at me before hurrying away with dad, calling over her shoulder, “Rosette, darling, help Miri with her lesson will you? Thanks a bunch!”

I questioned Rosette but she merely changed the subject every time I tried. In fact, the whole wood seemed to be acting odd. Only one time did I hear anything else about the “he” who “knows.” I overheard two robins swapping tales. “Yep, yep, yep,” the first robin chirped, “I heard that he keeps requesting a free entrance over the boarder, and, apparently, just this morning they granted it . . . He has Peter’s blessing. I wouldn’t be surprised if he showed up at Mother, Father, and Daughter’s home tonight.”

“Nonsense!” chirped robin #2, “yesterday, when delivering a message, I caught a glimpse of him up in Ridge Valley. I still give ‘im two to three days…” The robins voices trailed off as they got farther from my hiding spot.

I frowned. Who was coming to Anna Rosa? Was it possible that my perfect home and parents had secrets and flaws? Could it be dangerous?

That night I prayed. To who? Anyone. Anyone who could hear my desperate cry and save my little piece of sunshine . . .
