Chapter 1


I had this brainbubble...

Check out this place the rays told me about.

Eastern Neck Island. Humans set it aside as a wildlife refuge, so no houses and staring humans and garbage and stuff.

Island.

It's on land.




Really...

NOT...

fun.

Stupid gravity.

We don't have gravity in the sea. We float. We fly.

We flip our fins and get pretty far despite whatever that cartoon character said.

And I still have my voice... who needs a stupid prince anyway.

Fortunately I have friends: Kai and Genevieve.





Stupid gravity!

Get right back on that horse! Grandma always said.



Cool, this works...

...or not.


I finally got the hang of riding a slippery and somewhat sparkly sea horse...


We headed down the boardwalk that goes over the marsh. You can't walk in the marsh, it's too wet, I can't swim there, not enough water. Even a kayak won't float; too much grass.


The boardwalk goes over the marsh and into the woods.


We saw these lovely twisty pine trees.


The dark box with the window is so humans can watch birds and not disturb them.


Yeah, this is cool!



We went down another trail into the woods. The island isn't very far above the water, there's lots of water in the woods.



Tastes fresh, Genevieve says, so it must be from the rain.



We found another beach!


Oh, wait, remember Kai?

He got kind of bored...


"Let's go for a gallop." he says.

Riiiiiight.

Sure.

Uh huh.






It's like riding the waves!


We explored the island some more.


Oyster shells and pebbles rounded by sand and wind and water line the beach.


Foxes explored here before us, looking for rabbits, or maybe the eggs of diamondbacked terrapins.


Or a fish dropped by an osprey or eagle.



There are small wonders too...




We find another beach... full of driftwood and kind of scary.


Like it says on all of those old nautical charts: here there be dragons...


Fortunately for me... Kai has a plan.



So we hung out, roasted marshmallows, and watched the sun go down.


We found out gulls like to dance to mermaid songs.




Time to go home...
where there is no gravity...
no air, except Up...
no color...
and no fire.


Except when dragons make it.

Nasri Ibrahim: I love everything about it, t was cute and sweet

ayobamishubomi01: I would recommend this book to all my friends cause it makes so much sense. It had no sex scenes and unnecessary violence and the message was passed across well. I just don't understand how Ellie's brother is an alpha and she is not. She also is in a pack different from his.

Sarah Hammad: It’s very original. Not the typical “love at first sight” or “rejection at first sight” story. The plot doesn’t have a lot of drama which I think is great, too much drama is quite boring at times. I read with my mind, so my imagine was at peak while reading this story. I enjoyed it very much and ...

Lilly Mcgrath: I was truly incredible and sweet. I loved the plot! I wish there was more but the story is complete and it was an absolutely amazing ending!
