H2O Just Add Water Chapter 1

My name is Chrissie Sanderson, I'm age fifteen, have red hair, brown eyes, and I am 5'6", and I'm a mermaid. I became a mermaid at the age of five. A week later I moved to America away from Mako Island. I went there every chance I could before I left.

I just moved back to Australia where Mako Island is. I am swimming in the water on my way to the moon pool. I arrive there, got out, tried off, and stood on the ledge in front of the moon pool. I haven't been here in ten years.

At the beach

"Bella, Emma, Emma, Bella." Cleo said. Cleo introduced the two mermaids' that haven't met.

"So, this is the famous Emma I've been hearing so much about lately." Bella said.

"Yep," Emma said. "I've been hearing a lot about you too since I came back."

"Do you want to go for a swim?" Cleo asked.

"Sure." Everyone answered. They ran into the water since they all had their swimsuits on. They went to the moon pool as usual.

"What are you doing here?" Bella asked as soon as she looked up.

"This place is like a second home to me." I answered.

"Are you a mermaid?" Cleo asked.

"Yes I am." I answered. "If you girls would be so kind to get out of the water I will show you my power."

They get out of the moon pool and Rikki dries them off.

"First of all my name is Chrissie Sanderson." I said.

"My name is Cleo, this is Emma, Rikki, and Bella." Cleo said while pointing to each of them while saying their names.

"It's nice to meet you four girls." I said. "Should I show you my power first or are you four going to show me your power?"

"I think you should show us your power first to prove that you're a mermaid." Rikki said. Cleo elbowed her in the arm. "Hey."

"Alright then," I answered. "I was wondering if anyone might be able to splash water at me."

"Sure." Cleo answered. Cleo formed a tentacle from the moon pools' water and shot the water at me and let go of the control.

I put my hand in front of the water and it stopped from falling.

"Did you freeze the water?" Cleo asked as they all gathered around it.

"Nope," I answered. I still have my hand out. "My power is to stop water from its flow or to stop water from coming at my direction, which is almost the same thing."

"That's a cool power." Bella said.

"So if you're lucky you can stop water from coming at you if people aren't looking." Rikki said.

"Yep," I said. "After I let my hand go from stopping the water it drops down to the ground."

I really like my power because I can stop water from coming at me when it's falling in midair. My power isn't the same as Cleo's even though it might seem that way. She can control water but I can stop it in midair when she can't do that. "So I already know Cleo's power, what are the rest of them?" I asked.

"Emma you can go next." Cleo said.

"I have the power to freeze water." Emma said as she froze the water that I stopped. I let go of it since it's frozen.

"I have the power to evaporate water." Rikki said as she demonstrated her power.

"What's your power, Bella?" I asked.

"Cleo?" Bella said.

Cleo bought up a ball of water. Bella turned it into jelly then a few seconds later when it was regular water again she hardened the water and Cleo dropped the water in front of the moon pool.

"Like my powers?" Bella asked.

"Sure did." I said. "I hope I get to be apart of your group of mermaids."
