Crystal Waters

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.

13. So Close!


          It's been three agonizingly long days with the Pinkies. They never shut up! "So and so did this. He cheated on her! No way, really?" Blah, Blah, Blah. Saph and I just grit our teeth and stick it out.

           According to my calculations, we are two days away from the Caribbean. Two days to freedom! Along the way, we've been hunting, much to the Pinkies dismay. They still refuse to learn how to feed themselves, even when we will be leaving them alone, by themselves, in the Caribbean.

          The news has shown that the search for my sister and I is still on. Neptune is frantic, raising the reward higher and higher. Saph desperately want to tell him that we are okay, but I say that leaving a signal will only lead to our capture. Sure, I do miss the luxuries of being a Princess, but being out in the open sea is way better. Kona and Star are ecstatic. They have so much energy and get to eat all these different fish, not just boring old minnows. 

"Are we there yet?" Marina complains, looking uncomfortable riding on Kona.

"No," I snap. She pouts and pulls out some dried seaweed from her bag.

          "Is this good to eat, I mean I won't like die, right?" Marina scrunches up her nose and looks at the green food distastefully.

          "Yes, Marina," Sapphire says patiently. "We wouldn't give you any food that would kill you, would we?" I suppress a laugh, she's talking to them like 4 year olds.

           "I guess not, but you never know," Marina sticks the seaweed in her mouth and chews thoughtfully. "This is actually good. What kind is it?"

"Beats me, we just grabbed some from the dolphin waste and stuck it on some rocks for a few days," I glance at Saph and she giggles.

           "Omg! Ew, Ew, Ewwww. Get it out! Agh!" Marina flails her hands at her mouth, trying to spit out the seaweed, shouting at Macy and Dakota to help her.

"Marina, calm down, it was a joke." I prod.

            "Oh," Marina sits up straighter on Kona. "I knew that, I was just playing around. Right Macy and Dakota?"

"Of course," Macy gives us a reassuring smile.

"Yea, she does that all the time," Dakota adds.

"Riiigghhhtt. Anyways, we need to find a cave to spend the night, any ideas?" I say.

           "Um, I know!" Sapphire volunteers, "How about the Baja Coast Caves? They're only about 1 hour away and it's far away from any Patrol stations."

           "Sounds good, but we have to get there before dark. C'mon Pinkies, speed up the pace," I mindlessly chide.

"What.... did you just call us?" Marina glares at me.

"Uh- well, Pinkies. Ya know, 'cause you have pink tails?" I offer sheepishly.

           "Totally. That's cute. I need to use that, thanks Topaz!" She smiles, happy with the new nickname.

"No problem," I gulp.

           Saph hisses at me. "Nice save Topaz," I roll my eyes and continue swimming, looking for the caves.

"Here's one!" Dakota shouts, exploring a small cave.

"Good, you, Macy, and Marina can share this one. Sapphire and I will take-"

"No way! I get my own cave," Marina turns her nose up at us.

          "Fine, take that one," I point to a small cave just to the left. "Sapphire and I will have this one." I cheerfully swim into the largest cave and take off Star's saddlebag.

           I finally look up at my surroundings. We're in a large pool, covered at the bottom with glistening shells and sparkly jewels. Above us the walls and ceiling is made of fossils and abalone shells. There's a small strip of pure white sand and the water is crystal clear. 

"Wooowww, what is this place?" Saph stares in awe.

           "I don't know, but it's amazing," I motion to a rock outcropping about 1 foot under the water. "You can take that bed and I'll take the one by the entrance. Tie the dolphins to the rock on the shore."

          You're probably wondering how mermaids sleep? Well, just like land-dwellers, we close our eyes and lay down. Underwater, it's not much different than land, except, well, you're on land. 

"Hey, Sapphire, first one in the morning to spear a cod gets the best meat!"

"You're on, prepare to lose!" Saph teases.

"In your dreams!"

"Speaking of dreams," she yawns and continues. "Let's go to bed, I'm exhausted!"

"Yeah, me too. Goodnight Sapphire."

"Goodnight, little sis. Sweet dreams." I groan and she laughs. 

"Whatever, go to bed." I demand.

"Mhmm," Saph drifts off to sleep (not literally ;) and I flip on my side, the familiar sound of Sapphire's breathing floating around the room.
