19. The Falls
I walked down the sandy beach. I was walking by a lake, that fed into the ocean. I could feel the power surge through me as the waves reached my feet.
I sighed, running a hand through my hair.
I looked around, seeing nobody was standing on the beach except me.
I sighed again, and kept walking.
Niall Horan. Enter the water. Follow my voice.
I looked towards the lake. I saw a little ripple and decided to walk into the water towards it.
I walked on the bottom of the lake, watching fish swim by.
I frowned, seeing how much junk was on the bottom of the lake. It was terrible.
Then, I saw a green swirl front of me. It turned into a human shape, and soon it was a beautiful girl.
Hello Niall. She smiled, bubbles escaping her lips.
“How do you know me?”
I am a Nereid. A sea spirit. I come to you with a message from your father.
“What is the message?” I asked
Your father told me that you shall find what you seek at the Niagara Falls.
“Where in Niagara Falls?”
I’m sorry, but I cannot stay. I must return to the sea. She said, slowly fading
“Wait!” I yelled
But she was already gone.
