"Guys! Olive and Oliver are back!" says Manny. Sure enough, there they are, holding a bunch of herbs. Good, we're going to need all the hep we can get if we want to defeat an army. Suddenly I see Iris swimming over to me. Why does she look so angry? "Why didn't you tell me you were my father? Why did you kill my mother!!"
she says, her eyes ablaze with rage. I stare for a moment at her, then redeem myself. " Well, if you really want to know, your so-called precious, perfect mother betrayed me, and tried to kill me! " I say angrily.I don't mention it was to feed her fry. I didn't have a choice anyway. In the arena, it's kill or be killed. She glares at me, then swims off to talk to Draco. I look at Oscar and Mika. I will probably need one more fish with me, if everyone's not sorted into groups.
I'm trembling with excitement. "I'm actually going to battle Shadowmoon clan warriors! Again! I didn't get a very good chance to see, but now I will be able to get a perfect view of their battle tactics!" I say happily. Oscar gives me a confused look, then shakes his head. " This isn't a game, you know..." he says, sounding slightly scared. Well, of course he is correct, we are horribly outnumbered and will likely die in the process. I just simply say " We will be... fine." he nods, relaxing a bit. I look at him, his eyes full of fear. " There is no need to be afraid. If we die, we die for the right cause. Isn't this better than dying alone in a fish bowl, where nobody will care, nor remember you? Isn't it better to die fighting for a worthy cause?" I think of my old pathetic home. I have come so far, I would never go back.
Mika is trembling with excitement but me- I'm trembling with fear. I hate this. I hate being a coward. I'm too scared to fight for my friends, and too scared to admit it! Mika happily chats on and on about how excited she is. " This isn't a game, you know..." I say. Her babbling is just making me more nervous. She says "We will be... fine." I nod slowly, relaxing a bit. The fight isn't quite yet here yet, so I don't have to worry. She looks me in the eye, and I feel uncomfortable, like she can see right through me. " There is no need to be afraid. If we die, we die for the right cause. Isn't this better than dying alone in a fish bowl, where nobody will care, nor remember you? Isn't it better to die fighting for a worthy cause?" she says, then looks thoughtful, like she is thinking of the past. She's right. If something bad does happen to me, it will be for my friends, for Silverbeam, for his kingdom.
Hi guys, you've probably noticed I'm not on as much. The reason for that is the fact that I'm so much busier than I was last year. Also, I'm in the school play for once. (Squee!) So, I probably will be popping around everyone once in while anyway. But, until then- toodles!
