Yay! Updates! I hope y'all like this chapter. DISCLAIMER: I do not own Ingo, dolphins, or Mer speech.
" Broder... broder kerenza... I call you, I summon your spirit. Listen, take this little one. She has human form and Mer blood. I call you..." My spirit hears the voice of one of my sisters. Humans. They are the last thing I want to hear about. Humans caused my death, and that of many others. Humans steal Ingo... but that call... and the child has Mer blood, my sister says... weird. But for one more night, just one more, I will be alive. And that call; I must go. I must...
What the heck am I doing? I'm taking a human on my back? Ugh. But I sense the goodness in her, she truly has Mer blood. She is a friend of Ingo. A sudden ecstacy fills me, a joy of being alive, even if for one night. I gather myself and leap into the Air. Joy! Life! Freedom! My spirit cannot feel like this, but I can now. I reach the place that the human child wanted to go to. It is an island, a kingdom of Air and humans. I swim into a lagoon, and the child slides off my back. She looks back at me, seeming confident that I will wait for her. Will I? Yes, of course. I am grateful to my sister, warning this child I will not (cannot) talk to her. The Mer blood must be strong in this child, for her to make the Crossing, the most sacred and ancient ritual of the Mer. She wears something around her wrist. I felt it. I think it is a deublek. She must have a strong connection to one of the Mer... my thoughts drift off...
The human child has returned. She is once again mounting my back. After she has sealed herself against me, I manuveur out of the lagoon and we are back in free water once more. I only have a while longer left to 'live'...
Once the human child slips off me, I feel myself dying. My body is once again dead, and I am a spirit. I wonder what is happening, because the child has a shocked look on her face. I'm going... going... gone. My spirit is where no live eye could ever see... I am never to live again, for death is final.
And I died in the hope that, one day, I shall be called again; for now I can see all of Ingo, and there is trouble brewing, a battle to be fought.
That's all for now! I might do something with this later on, but for now, it's dead (no pun intended). Please review!
