As I did every day, I leaped from the whitewashed pier and made a graceful dive into the water that would make Ms. Vanderwave proud. Sunlight bled through the surface of the water sending beams of golden light through the ocean. This seems like the one place where I am truly happy. The fish swirled around me in a synchronized rushing rainbow. Above, the dolphins played on the surface. They leaped up in numbers with intricate fashions. This is where beauty was born. Not on some person’s face. I dove deeper, scattering the school of fish. I was never gonna believe what Veronica said last night. I would find my Sea Soul. I knew I would. My legs propelled myself to the bottom. I adjusted my angle to coast along the rolling hills of sand. Using my hands to plow through the loose sand, I uncovered beautiful seashells. None of them called me like a Sea Soul is rumored to. I was beginning my ascent to the surface for air when something among the boulders caught my eye. A small opening in one of the faces of the rocks showed a cave. It was too small for any adult to squeeze through, but as I was sizing it up I figured I could slither in. I had to investigate.
After coming up for air, I went towards it and realized that this cave was like a tunnel. The inside was a shimmering blue and the outside was a bland sandy color. I peered into the cave and a long yet faint rumbling came from the darkness. Most would be intimidated, but not me. It was the sinister sound from within and the eerie darkness that urged my curiosity. Besides, if I wanted to be a merknight, this would simply be a test of courage. Swimming forward in a swift motion, I left the light and safety behind me and let the unknown engulf me. Deeper into the cave, I experienced pitch blackness. Feeling my way around and telling myself to stay calm, I spotted light at the end. The tight tunnel opened up to a huge cavern probably bigger than a gymnasium. The cave led only downwards and there was literally nothing but sand outside this cavern. This must not only be underwater, but underground too! What an amazing find! I’ve never imagined a place quite like this. Blue rock walls stretched far below me to create something like a dome, maybe. No, not a dome necessarily, but what? Tiny crevices in large numbers managed to shed light in here. The shiny blue walls reflected light across the entire space. The bent light created rainbows everywhere on the walls. The cavern was just beautiful. I felt just one thing wrong in this incredible scene. Fish usually love to play in concealed yet seemingly magical places like this, but none swam in the cavern. Nothing moved at all. Just utter silence. The rumbling erupting once again, but stronger, breaking the eerily quiet moment. I froze in my place as my eyes noticed a black spot in the shimmering sapphire blue floor. It seemed to be breathing. Expanding and retracting over and over again. I heard a slight swish and it came alive. It shot through the water at lightning speed, opening its jaw. The gums were a dark blue and its teeth a strikingly dazzling white. It snapped a matter of inches away from my foot. Something told me it was time to go. I kicked with all my strength towards the way I came. Whatever was below me wasn’t through with me yet, though. It took another try taking off my foot with no avail, I think. It charged for another attack as I disappeared through the cave. My heart raced as the sound of monstrous cries of battle rang out too close behind me as I would like. I was soon surrounded by the familiar sea green the sun creates as it is setting above. Even though I was out of the cave, I still heard it clearly behind me. I didn’t trust that I was safe until my head breached the surface, gasping for oxygen. I tried to tread water as I finally believed I was safe. I could not believe what my eyes had just beheld. A monster? In these waters? What was such a beast doing living here in the so-called safest waters the ocean could offer? I inspected my feet loosely for any injuries. Incredibly, not a scratch on me, I think. Two things were racing through my mind. One, was I crazy?! Why did I just enter an unknown cave with no idea what-so-ever what I was up against and assumed I had to do it as a little test of courage?! That was not courage! That was just stupid! So foolhardy!
Two, did the school know about this? They must have some knowledge about such a monster. I would have to describe it to them, for certain. I reluctantly dove under to get one last look at this life-threatening place. I was in pure shock when I came to the spot that I was nearly killed in. For there, in the sapphire-colored cave’s place was just sand. Aside from a few small shells and the sand of course, nothing was there. Empty. Maybe I was crazy.
First on my agenda was to inform someone from the school of this phenomenon. My brain automatically came to Ms. Vanderwave but, I had second thoughts. She did just yell at me. However, I had no other option with any other teacher. I felt that everyone else would not take me seriously. I ran as fast as my still shaking-with-fright legs could possibly carry me. Across the winding trails, I sprinted with swift movement dodging chatting girls on the way. I eventually reached the school when I pushed through the double doors. Faculty yelled at me to walk in the halls from the tubes above, but I paid them no heed for any other girl swimming could have found it and was diving closer to danger every time my foot pounded against the floor. At last, I made it to Ms. Vanderwave’s classroom and, to my luck, she was still in the pool grading papers. “Hope? What are you doing here? Why do you look like you have just swam a marathon?” “Ms. Vanderwave...huff...huff...a monster... huff... in the cave...huff...” “Now, now. Hope, catch your breath then talk.”I did as instructed. “I saw a monster in a deep cavern in the sea!” This left her dumbfounded, an expression rarely seen on Ms. Vanderwave’s face. The she grinned into a relaxed look. “Oh! Of course, the salmon! This is their breeding season. They tend to gather in tight clusters of large quantities around here.” “No! That’s not it!” “Oh? Then what happened?” “I was just swimming in the ocean when I came across a cave. Inside the cave, it opened up into a huge cavern. At the floor of this place, there was a giant monster that tried to eat me! I managed to escape but, if another student wanders there, they might not be as lucky! We need to do something!” This caused her jaw to drop, more dumbfounded that before. Again, she relaxed immediately after and even broke into a slight chuckle. “Hahaha. Oh, Hope! You must have hit your head by mistake. Don’t you worry, I’ll call the school nurse to expect you. Will you go to her office?” “Wait, What?! You think the terrifying, nightmarish, dark, and dangerous place of horror I just experienced where I nearly escaped with my life, let alone my foot was all in my imagination?! I don’t think my imagination is all that vivid!” “It’s alright. You are safe, now. Hurry along. I hope you feel better in the morning” She shooed me out of her room with no choice, but to obey her recommendation. I could not believe this! There was no way that a place like that came from a head injury! I escaped by inches from my foot to be told that I imagined it! The school nurse asked countless questions in which I answered the same way. “Did you hit your head?” “No” “Is your vision blurry?” “No” “What happened?” “I told you, I was attacked by a monster!” “How many fingers am I holding up?” “Two. Can I go to my dorm, now?” “Not yet, just a few more questions.” Along with a few tests, this went on and on until late that night. I was finally released for sleep after Veronica was called in and asked to watch over me and make sure that whatever hocus pocus medicine she gave me was working. Even Veronica showed concern, and this is Veronica! Back in my dorm, I evaluated the possibilities. I could've hit my head in that cave when it was too dark to see. Maybe the lack of light made it hard to make out shapes and from there my imagination took the wheel... no! I knew what I saw was real.
I spent days of bed rest, not swimming, not running around outside. Nothing. It was probably the longest I’ve ever gone without the ocean. I felt I really have gone insane from the lack of salt water. Everyone was still skeptical about my condition. One morning, I woke up before everyone else. Veronica was still snoring as loud as ever. No one was awake to stop me from escaping. I managed to sneak out of my dorm to the beach. The sky was a peach color from the sun rising in the east. Once I got to the beach, memories of the cave swam in my brain. I couldn’t bring myself to swim out to sea. I settled on my favorite rock instead, right next to the shore. The dolphins leaped out of the water close to the horizon as I overlooked the ocean. It was a beautiful scene, but I was too miserable to appreciate it. However, the view did remind me of something I heard long ago. Soon enough, I did something I hadn’t done in years. I started to sing. I once heard a melody in the ocean when I was little. It stuck for so many years. I didn’t think I would remember the song. Yet, here I was. As the notes and pitches rang out, fish started popping up out of the water. Soon the dolphins joined the fish surrounding me in a herd. Not a single splash sounded as I sang the last note. I heard voices in the distance and disappeared behind the shrubs lining the sand. I made it back in time at my dorm to see a note in our mailbox next to our dorm. Apparently, I was back in school. The nurse still thought that I was suffering from something. She told all the teachers about it too. No matter, though. If the cave was gone when I dove back down to get a last glimpse of it, maybe a current buried the entrance. I prayed that this happened instead of what I knew, deep down. It was still out there and if I didn’t do something soon, one less girl would be attending this school. My history class began that day as I was recalling the details of the cavern, besides the monster. There was a light coming from somewhere other than the crevices. There were not enough crevices for such a cavern to be about as bright as dawn. What caused such a light? Oh, what was I thinking?! Curiosity would get me nowhere. I would not swim anywhere near that area again! That’s final! As all the other students poured into the classroom, some were pointing at me, muttering something to the girl next to her. I turned away from the students and simply stared straight ahead. Mr. Finnalio, the only merman in the school, was busy organizing his briefcase when the bell rang. “Good morning, ladies! Take your seats!” We all scrambled to our assigned seats. “Today, we will be discussing mermaid mythology. A detailed description of the impossible, if you will. Many incredible treasure is said to dwell in the ocean, but none more noteworthy than the hidden treasure that is always moving!” This fantastical remark got everyone whispering to whoever was next to them. “A treasure that moves?” “What does he mean by that?” “I don’t understand.” Mr. Finnalio chuckled at these comments. “Ladies, this treasure is being housed in a large hollow sphere at the very bottom. An underwater floating bubble, so to speak. However, this bubble floats from sea to shining sea! Legend has it that the inside of this sphere-like cavern is a glistening sapphire blue, but the outside is camouflaged with sand and seashells. This “bubble” can move silently through the sand while staying below the seafloor at all times. Only a few adjacent caves offer access to the main cavern. Within the main cavern, the treasure, is a lone seashell with a shape of any average seashell, but it glows with the color of the blue moon’s aura. This seashell is called the Moon’s Tear. It is said to hold the power of the moon, controlling tides and directing seasons.” This left a gasp in every student in that room and Mr. Finnalio looking quite pleased with himself. Everyone then murmured excitedly to each other. “HOWEVER!” All students jolted at the increase of volume. “The treasure is also said to be guarded by the kind of monster leaving a child screaming in the middle of the night. Even the slightest mention of it sends chills down many spines. This monster takes the shape of a giant eel, said to have the skin like shadow, the teeth like daggers, the motive of a demon. If one were to go in, they would never return.” He said this with with a dark, mysterious, and threatening tone. This caused the entire room to be dead silent. “On a brighter note, students are to be released early today for a faculty conference. Enjoy the rest of the day!” Most smiled, but some were too shaken by his tale to move. Eventually, they found their bearings and departed the classroom. Not me. I was not shaken to paralyse, but in deep thought. It’s a theory, but it’s a certain one. This place of legend is my mystery cavern. I was going back to prove it.
Also, to Dolphinheart, I don't have a vm list and I'm not sure on how to make one. I'm so sorry.
To make a vm list, you just write down all the people (on your story, a sheet of paper, document wordpad, anywhere you can save it) and vm\pm them when you post new chapters. If you do make a vm list, please add me to it! (:
Chapter 6, guys! I think I'm nearing the end of the story. This is surely the first part of the climax
Heading straight for the ocean after my mystery cave, I had no second thoughts about the danger. Last time, it was foolhardy because I had no idea what was there. This time, it was courage. I knew what I was getting myself into and I was prepared for it with a safe plan. The legendary cave was supposed to have the rare rocks inside that were blue. So, the plan was simple. Go in, get some rock of the blue insides from the cavern and before the monster realizes my presence, I would already be gone. I played it in my mind over and over again. It seemed completely foolproof. Yet, I felt it was a little off, but I shook my doubts away. If I was going to prove that there was a real danger here, this was the sole way to successfully do it.
When I was preparing to dive in, I saw the flaw in my plan. In history, they said that the cavern drifted. What if it was no longer there? Was I too late? At this, I jumped into the sea. Only one way to find out if I was too late. To see for myself.
I dove deeper and deeper to the ocean floor. My legs were unsteadily kicking, recalling the experience last time in the cavern. I pushed the monster out of my mind and pushed on. Finally at the seafloor, I scanned the rolling hills of sand with assorted shells. Nothing. No cave. Just shells and sand. No point in swimming anymore, today.
I was about to swim back up when it caught my eye. The cave appeared shorter than the last time of encounter, but the entrance was still big enough to swim through. After one last breath, I silently crept through. I knew every turn in here, for it was impossible to forget anything from the last trip and could navigate easily. However, as I went deeper, a sense of foreboding washed over me. Every cell in my brain screamed at me to turn back. Yet, my heart guided me forward. I ignored my brain and let my heart lead me further.
The narrow tunnel soon opened up into the cavern. It was even more beautiful than the first time I ventured here. I stared for what seemed like forever then snapped myself out of the trance. Focus. Stick to the plan. I reached for the closest wall to me and felt around a loose rock. My fingers closed around it. The rock was jagged and sharp, but it was a stunning blue. Perfect. Mission accomplished. I turned to leave unscathed when something caught my eye.
A bright shimmer glowed from the bottom. The black lump known as my giant eel friend was there, appearing to sleep. The sight of it sent an uncontrollable shiver down my spine. However, that did not hold my attention for long. Right beside the sleeping figure was a beautiful blue glow. Almost like a halo that you see around the moon...
The Moon’s Tear rested directly next to the monster. The object itself was so tiny, but its beauty was infinite. The light itself seemed to be the light from heaven, so divine. Its beams shone to every corner of the dark cavern.
There was also something else. I felt indescribably drawn to it, as if we held some sort of connection. My pulse raced faster and faster. What was this feeling? Nothing like this ever happened before. One thing was clear. I had never felt anything like it and I had to have it. I would not leave without it.
Hi, hi! Chapter 7! Climax climax climax! This is so exciting! I'm think of, when it is done, attemping to get it published as a real book. What do you guys think? Anyway, chapter 7!
Any person with sense would have left immediately and would have done so probably in one piece. I had no such sense. As I said before, I was crazy. However, had I left, I probably never would have claimed that incredible shell that stirred me inside. The giant eel lunged at me from its place at the bottom. The attempt was futile, missing me by inches once again. My eyes filled with horror as we locked in a stare. It’s eyes were a deep blue, now that I got a closer look. One eye at each side of its head. It retracted once again for another attempt. Think fast, think fast. My mind drew a complete blank. All I could think of was to get away from its attacks as best I could. That could work for awhile, but the monster would surely catch me eventually. The monster lunged for a second time. It’s jaw was wide, showing its dagger-like teeth and determination in its bulging eyes. Coming up fast at me, I tried my makeshift plan to swim just out of reach. It was just enough distance to miss me. It snarled in annoyance of my evasive maneuvers, but I was too petrified to care. If it came at me one more time, it would not miss. I tried to think, but my mind was in a paralyzed state from the sight before me. The tip of the monsters snout was about a foot away from my face. Neither the monster nor I moved at all. This was it. It was going to finish me off right here. I closed my eyes and prepared for the worst death I could imagine. Nothing. Was I already dead? I opened my eyes and it was in the same place as before. What? How was this possible? Now, my curiosity took place of fear. My gaze wandered again to its eyes. Bulging and gruesome, but they were darting around, as if looking for something. Looking for me? But I was right here. Why was it looking for me when I was right under his nose, literally. Wait, if it’s eyes were at the side of it’s head, was his vision obstructed? That was it. That was my ticket to survival. Now, an escape plan. The monster could not see what’s directly in front of it, but if I moved one inch, I was eel bait. What if it did not have both eyes. That’s when my hand clenched tighter around the rock still in my hand. It was a crazy plan, but I was too far from sane to do anything but the insane. I threw the blue rock right at the monster’s right eye. As it hurled through the water, the monster turned his direction towards me. I’ve been spotted! However, before it could attack, the rock hit its eye. The monster thrashed around in pain and agony, crashing against the walls. It’s roar was deafening and its cry was unbearable. The weight of its body against the blue walls formed cracks and crevices. If the monster continued anymore, the entire cavern would collapse! If I was going do this, I was going to do it quick. As the monster continued thrashing, I dove deeper to the bottom of the cavern where the monster was attached. The light blue shell gleamed like the moon just as it was rumored to. The rocks started to crumble as my fingers closed around the Moon’s Tear. Something that felt like finality washed over me. It felt very good. I was only able to experience this for a little while when my lungs suddenly screamed for air. My legs refused to work and I felt myself slipping from consciousness. So, this is where my life ends? Buried with a monster and a seashell in my hands. I held the shell tight to my chest, waiting for death to arrive. However, a pair of arms surrounds me. Arms with skin! My vision was too blurred to identify the rescuer. I heard crumbling around me and felt it as I swerved in the arms of whoever was trying to dodge the falling boulders. I heard a roar of the monster, but much louder than before. After that, consciousness slipped away from me altogether.
