The Rhythm of the Tides : Layla's Dance

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

“I am mist-borne,” she sings
And the mist it hears her song
As it rises and it falls
Forming jewels upon her wings.

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

“I am sea-foam,” she sings
And the sea-foam hears her song
As it crashes against the rocks
Setting a crown upon her head.

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

“I am sea life,” she sings
And the corals hear her song
For they build a coloured column
As a sceptre for her hand.

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

Layla’s lips they blow love
Cross the vast and yawing seas
While the mermaids they start dancing
In a chorus they sing her name
“Ya Layla! Ya Layla! Ya Layla!
Long live our beloved queen!
Long may she reign upon the seas!
Long may she prosper upon the waves!”

And Layla’s eyes they dance
And Layla’s heart it sings
As she halts and then she sways
To the rhythm of the tides.

Farzana Khan: Story is enchanting so far

ZieQueen: Amazing 😭😭

Missyj6342: I like Bruno character but so far haven't heard much from Veronica POV which for her misgivings makes it more complicated to have any idea where they come from. In this story it seems like Felix is the person Bruno talks to most, whereas it should be Veronica.

Jaylene Pedrad: I loved this book, it’s better than your usual werewolves book. The pace of the story was decent, but once it got to the end I felt it was a little rushed.

Twiztedkandy: The story feels a bit too rushed for my liking but i still really like it.

nerdpsyche: The story is very unique and I am liking it so far.

i1032297: Amazing!!!! Please write more stories like this. I literally loved this one although the end wasn't quite of a surprise but the last sentence was just amazing. I never expected Deanna to say that.

RRV: The author needs to do a through proof reading before submission. Too many wrong words and spelling mistakes. Overall good gripping story ... ending quite sudden....left me wanting more.
