Topaz and Sapphire are for the most part two average sisters. They lived with their Mom and Dad in a wealthy home. One day, they came home to their mom sobbing, all her belongings gone. Their father had disappeared and taken all of their money. Later that year, their mom went missing. Not because she left, but because she was killed. They want to get revenge. One more thing,

They're Mermaids.

4. On the Run


          After riding for a good eight hours, we decide to stop at an inn, and plan out the rest of our journey. The innkeeper gave us his best room right away, once we said that we were the King's daughters. We looked around, and the room was large with abalone walls. Not uncommon, and pretty decent for a small inn on the outskirts of town. Topaz flopped down onto the bed, while I immediately went to the pre-stocked fridge. I grabbed some nice, cold, sea cucumber. 

          "So I was thinking that we would head west, to the aquatica library, to do some stalking. We'll head in the direction of any lead we can get." I suggested, munching my cucumber.

          "As long as we can take more rests," Topaz replied, sounding exhausted, "My tail feels like it's been run over by a charging manatee. Besides, Star and Kona can't go on forever. They're just glad they get to rest for a few hours."

"Okay, okay. Why don't we get some rest? We have a big day ahead of us." 

          I lay down, and try to sleep, but just can't. I can tell Topaz is out by the soft snoring from the other bed. I slip outside, and head to the small stables. Kona greets me and I feed her some fish heads. She nickers in satisfaction and Star nudges me with her head.

          "Ok, you get some too," I smile and feed her the rest. They look at me expectantly. "Sorry girls, I don't have anymore, we can go hunting tomorrow," and with that I head back to our room, falling into a deep sleep.
