Kelpie (Part 1)
The water was dark and imposing. It went down to unknown depths and concealed terrifying creatures that I didn't want to think about as I stared at my reflection in the water. I shivered as a fish's gleaming back broke the surface of the water, leaving ripples cascading across the water.
The lake had always been a puzzle to me. I had been taken here by my mother with my siblings for years; they loved it… I hadn't known how to feel about it. The water was amazing to me, but also dangerous. I looked at it in the way that you'd look at a lion. In wonder, but also in great fear.
I don't know why I still came here, but I did. Everyday, without fail.
