There's no need to be upset." Anger coursed through my veins as I sprang up and spoke to him in a deadly whisper "No need to be upset? No need to be up-flipping-set? The boy I loved died to save me. He sacrificed himself to the ocean. To you, to you oh great and powerful Poseidon, to you. So when you go through that and get upset well boo-frigging-hoo." * * * Allysia cut herself off that day. Never spoke another word after those 6 words. Blocked all emotions. Until Poseidon DO NOT, I repeat NOT, expect updates to this story to be quick and regular, I merely write when I fancy.
