Damian's Deeds (TOH #4)
If you're wanting a happy fairytale, keep scrolling. This isn't he story for you.
But if you're looking for a mythical story filled with dystopia and magic, both dark and light, keep reading. This story is one where evil is in every crevice of the world, and where one girl is destined to destroy it. But first, she has to choose that destiny.
Every baby is killed beneath the waves--with one exception. The one-hundred thousandth lives.
A long time ago, 1 in every 100,000 children born from a human was a mermaid. But now mermaids are the only ones that can survive in this flooded world. Every human child born is killed the moment they take their first breath. However, one in every one-hundred thousand is spared.
These children are placed on the mountain-tops, the "islands", that poke up over the sea. The Earth has become warmer, making these islands habitable. The humans that survive through Mother Nature's fury have created Tribes, created rules. One of these rules is to not go near the water, to not touch it.
You know the story. There's a girl who lives to be sixteen, who goes and touches the water. Who begins to show symptoms of something half-human. Symptoms of a mermaid.
These symptoms have drawn something out from the depths of the woods, from the darkness of the sea... And it's out to get this girl that's growing scales. The One-Hundred in the midst of One-Hundreds. Cressa-la.
But where was Damian when Dametria was following Cressa-la? Why did he react the way he did, and what were his motives exactly? Dive into Damian's head as the story of Cressa-la replays--from the eyes of the villain.
