The Legend of Divine Mystics - Chapter 3.2
Chapter 3.2: Stormy Night
She was one of my best mermaid friends and the only mermaid who truly understood me and wasn’t as nosy as the others.
“It’s been a long time since I last saw you. Don’t you think you should be a little nicer, Fin?” But she was a little too proactive. Well, I didn’t mind that until she knew when to stop and that, she did.
“Ok…ok, don’t get angry. Let’s go for a swim to refresh ourselves. From the looks of you, you’re wasting your life stressing out again.” she said, taking my hand and pulling me towards the ocean.
“Ok, ok, I’m coming. Just let me take off my shoes first.” I took my shoes off and went after her into the water, slowly checking the temperature. That was when I felt a tug at my dress and was pulled into the water.
Water attacked all my senses, entering through my nostrils. I started flapping my hands and tried to reach the surface. I saw a hand reaching towards me and pulling me out. I greedily took a deep breath to try calming my nerves down.
“Come on, Anu. You can’t even handle a small prank? And here I thought you were a great swimmer.”
I gave her a glare that silenced her.
“Ahaha, okay fine. Let’s go!!!” I excitedly exclaimed.
Swimming through these deep waters, I felt my mind and body cooled off. I drifted along the water, letting go of everything that troubled me. Just the calmness and serenity that the beautiful deep black, dark ocean gave me.
“Anu, I think I see a storm coming,” said Fin as we resurfaced.
I looked towards the sky but there were no clouds. Just a sky filled with stars and…
Where is the moon?
Maybe it’s late. Ahaha
But mermaids were supposed to know the waters best, so it must be true. And after all the sleepless nights, I was really stressed out a lot. I just need a little bit more time to enjoy this calm and serenity.
“Just a little bit more then we shall leave.”
“Ok but just five more minutes.”
But who knew that this decision of mine would change my life forever. Maybe I’ll regret this decision afterwards, wanting my calm life back or maybe I’ll just forget my past life completely after this day, leaving everything behind.
After some time, it started to rain. We decided to return before the situation gets worse and we were unable to navigate back. Along our way back, it started to rain harder. I wasn’t able to see anything in front of me making me lose sight of Fin.
“Fin, where are you?! Fin! FIN!” I shouted at the top of my lungs but the roaring waves blocked my voice from being heard. I was continuously pulled down by the waves. It felt as though the whole world was against me today. A feeling of dread surged into me, the feeling that I was gonna die.
That was when I saw it, the thunder clouds approaching me and a blood moon above me. After that, I remember being pulled down to the depths of the ocean and a bright light flashed past my eyes.
When I woke up, I could hardly open my eyes from the piercing light around me.
“Uhhhh…” I pried open my eyes after much effort, only to find myself lying on a strange, unknown shore.
I tried to get up, only to fall back on my butt, the world turning black before my eyes. The last thing that I saw before losing consciousness was a pitch black wolf with star speckled fur. It looked just like the one in my dreams.
‘Maybe I really was dreaming and when I wake up I would be back in my cosy but a little cranky bed.’ Thinking like this, I return to the world of darkness, to my world of dreams.
