" Heir of Poseidon??" i chuckled to myself, they have got to be kidding me.
All three of them stared at me humorlessly, like this wasnt a funny joke at all.
"Your seriouslly? your actually serious right now?"
Aladdin nodded slowly, as if i was some crazy person.
well, okay then.
"What is the..heir of poseidon?" i asked curiouslly.
the woman of the group looked at me in shock, whille the blonde just stayed emotionless.
my tail below me swished back and forth, i barely even noticed the small movement anymore. Watching it move around i realized that it was very possible to blush underwater.
"You dont know?" the blonde finally spoke up, his vocie deeper then expected.
I nodded vigerouslly " human remember? or at least i was.."
The three of them shared a cautious look, before aladdin once again took the responsibilty of queing me in.
"The Heir of poseidon is excatly what it says. every once and awhille their will be a mer who is direct decendent from the god poseidon himself, sometimes its a great grand child or even his daughter or son"
aparently i am some greek gods realitive? go figure.
"So if im supposedly related-"
'You are" aladdin cut me off firmly.
"Okay then. but what does that mean??"
aladdin looked at me thoughtfully, as if he was choosing his words carefully.
" In mer society we dont have a dictatorship, no one is eligiable to be the rular. the only ones who have the right to rule is the ones our god has marked as his own but we havent had one of those in a thousand or so years..."
"so your saying that im the only elgible person in over a thousand years to have potiental rule over the mer...society?" i confirmed slowly.
his bueatiful blue eyes burned into mine, and i had the overwelming urge to forget all this mer stuff and attack his lips with my own.
his stare had my core burning hotly, and for the first time in years i felt the unmistakable feeling of butterflies fluttering around in my stomach.
"Yes" his vocie had turned even huskier and i swear i saw a flicker of lust flash through his eyes, as if his body was reacting to mine like mine was to his.
" I cant rule! im not even suppose to be a mermaid! i cant belive this happening" i muttered angrily. if this is a dream i need to wake up and soon.
but i knew that this was real. i was whatever they were telling me, wheather i liked it or not.
"nothing is ever accadiental. I believe their was a reason for why the ocean called to you, and a reason you answered the pull. " The woman said, the way she spoke was mystirous yet filled with unexplainable wisdom.
"This is crazy"
the blonde man laughed " It gets better" great. My eyebrow rose in surprise, what else can there be?
" your not only the next rular, you also have been given a bit of your godly relative's powers. Though it depends on how close you are on the family tree to poseidon, you may only have a little spark"
" oh god" i groaned. i just wanted to get through the rest of the summer and start a new life in college. i defintly didnt want a new life underwater! with responsiblitys and unkown powers and a god for a realitive.
"Gods" the woman corrected sternly.
"Whats going to happen now?" i asked quietly, my eyes dropping down. this was all becoming to much, i dont know how im suppose to do this. im only eighteen, why does it have to be me? im sure their are much better canadates out there, ones who are smarter and more adventurous and everything im not.
The woman's eyes softend as she gazed at me, she kind of reminded me of a aunt i once had before she died of lukiemia.
"We must take you to Atlantis"
and it keeps getting better.
"Atlantis is real??" three nods awnsered my question. arent myths and legends suppose to stay myths and legends?
" why do i have a feeling that this isnt going to be easy?" I looked at Aladdin as i spoke, getting lost into his bright blue eyes.
Aladdin swam close to me, his dark blue fin glistening in the bit of light that shined under the water's surface.
"You are the chosen one" he breathed, his hot breath fanning my face lightly. " you are the one who can make it through this"
i melted at his words and if i was still human im sure my knees would of been weakend by his sexy vocie and how close he was to my body whiched longed to conect with his.
"Okay" i whispered, smilling up at the handsome man before me.
well this should be intresting.
I didnt question as the three of them began to swim back towards the gigantic caves, i just followed, letting my fin fall into a relaxing easy rythm.
Staring wide eyed, i took in the mouth of the cave that swollowed us as we swam into its entrence. The walls were a bueatiful smooth black color with small white crystals embedded into the stone.
At first i couldnt see through the blackness but slowly my eyes adjusted and everything became clear, as if the place wasnt engulfed in darkness.
Aladdin slowed down for me subtly, noticing that i was lagging behind due to my wounder.
he swam besides me and i wished i could reach out and hold his arm, or at least feel his skin against mine. i didnt understand all these feelings that i was having for this stranger, but there was no way i was complaining.
glancing at him out of the cornner of my eyes, i watched him, wishing his serious fascade would drop and he would talk to me.
Aladdin, as if feeling my gaze, turned to look at me. Blushing i looked the other way, pretending to be intrested in a large crystal that clung to the wall.
i cant belive i was going to atlantis. The legandary underwater city that for years people searched for, yet it was never found.
"Where is atlantis anyways?" i asked curiouslly, woundering why we havnt found it yet since it really did exsit.
"In the bermuda triangle" The blonde man awnsered me.
"Isnt that really far away from here?"
"Time and distence is very diffrent underwater, expesically for mers"
I nodded trying to seem as if i understood.
"Aladdin" i whispered, nudging him slightly with my elbow. A shock of electristiy went up my arm at the brief contact, that instantly had my arm tingleing with a pleasurable sensation.
His piercing blue eyes met mine, boring into me. " Who are they" i motioned to the pair swimming in front of us.
a small smile played onto his totataly kissable lips, and i eyed them longingly.
"The blonde is marcus and the femalel is lucinda"
grining in thanks, i shifted my focus back to my souroundings, taking in every little detail.
this was a whole new world and it feels right, me being here. being in the water with a fin seemed normal to me, that it was very possible and not at all me being in a crazy dream.
the water had always called to me and now i know why. i was ment to be here. This is where i belonged.
