Writing Challenge 2020 Day 6 : write a story based underwater
“You really think it exists?” She asked skeptically, raising her eyebrows in mockery.
I rolled my eyes at her, she’d never understand how the real the stories my sea watcher used to tell me every night before rushing us into the cave for night time.
The time when the sharp toothed, finned monsters roamed the murky seas in search of something to satisfy their rumbling stomachs.
The stories were all about hidden kingdoms and calm waters, waters where you could swim without having to watch your back constantly.
Staring at Amena, the most beautiful water nymph in the kingdom, I watched as her shiny brown curls swirled around her face in the current of the ocean, streaks of gold running through her hair.
Her ocean-tinted blue eyes, swirling and twinkling, stared at me in expectancy.
“Yes. Yes, I really think it exists.” I stated solemnly, believing every word that came out of my mouth.
“Well, what are you waiting for then? Let’s go!” She shouted excitedly, intertwining our fingers and swimming away into the ocean, into a city of unknown, pulling me with her.
“I think,” she move her hands through the water, and watched in wonder as a small water hurricane formed above the tip of her finger, “we’re here.”
“It’s beautiful.” I watched in total and utter awe as I weaved my hands through the water, manipulating it into gorgeous patterns.
“We are water nymphs. This is where we belong.” Amena reassured me, he bright blue eyes shining with excitement and pure amazement.
“You belong back in the sea cave with the other young water nymphs,” a stern voice behind us interrupted our magical experience, and made me frown a he emphasised the word ‘young’.
“Do you know who you’re talking to? Amina Calero of the Seven Seas Society, daughter of Atlantis Calero, king of the Seven Seas, I’m practically royalty darling.” Amena blew a kiss towards the guard at the end of her long, royal speech.
Astounded by the mention of her father, Atlantis Calero, the guard blanched a pale white and stuttered out some indecipherable apologies.
Composing himself, he took a long bow, well attempted too in the awkward motions of the sea.
“Amina Calero, it is such a pleasure to meet you. I apologise from the depths of my heart about my uncalled for rudeness, and hope you will find it in your heart to forgive me. Now please, follow me.”
The guard swished off not the distance, and then, after contemplating something, turned around to a add a side note, “without that young nymph friend of yours.”
Amina didn’t know what to say, so instead I floated over to her and lightly pressed my lips against her forehead, whispering ‘numquam te obliquo’.
Meaning I will never forget you.
Who knew writing a sea-based story could be so hard?! 😂 I was really looking forward to this one, but it was the trickiest to write! I’m pretty sure literally every story I’ve written has romance in it – I’m sorry guys 🤭
I hope you still enjoyed reading this, and I realise how sad my stories are as well. Guys, I promise – I am happy! 😂
Was this one of your favourite stories from my Writing Challenge collection? Would you read more of this if possible? Do you think this was from a male or female POV (point of view)?
That’s a wrap – happy reading and writing! 🍿
