New Book

Hello everyone! Today, I have an exciting post for you all! I've started to write a book and I'm going to share with you Chapter One/Two! Here it is:

Chapter 1- Stranded on a Raft
“Don’t you dare touch the water” The voice of my father rang through my head as I slept. I woke up to the sound of the seagulls crying. I sat up and looked around me. Water, water everywhere.

                Then, I remembered I was stranded on a raft in the middle of the ocean. Not daring to step foot (or tail in my case) in the water.
            How silly of me, I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Piper Melander and I am a mermaid.

Chapter 2- The Human Encounter
You must be wondering, how the fisherman did I get on this raft? I’m getting to that so stay put. My father, the king of the mermaids, is a kind man, right? NOT! I mean seriously who puts their own daughter on a raft in the middle of the ocean?
The “horrible thing” that I did actually isn’t so horrible. One day, I was sitting on my rock combing my hair with a sea shell, when all of a sudden, I see this beautiful creature. The creature is tall, has blond hair, but no tail? He has these two things called legs, which I’ve never seen before, only in the stories.

I swim over to him and ask him what’s wrong. He stares at me and then I remember, no talking to the “humans” (apparently those are the creatures with legs). The human doesn’t seem so mean so I stay, waiting for an answer, which was the wrong thing to do. Then, the weirdest and scariest thing happens. The human pulls out a small device, points it at me and then I hear a CLICK and a flash. I freak out and scream, and the human drops the device and runs. I pick it up and swim down back to Merlandia, my home.
 I swim home quickly to my palace and open the gates of my father’s room. “Father, father, you’ll never guess what I saw.” I tell him.
“What is it my dear?” he replies
“I saw a human! A tall one and he dropped this!” I show my father the small device. My father stares wide-eyed at the device and then calls in our best scientist to examine it. The scientist says it’s a dangerous device called a camera. I gasp and tell my father what the human did with the camera.
“You came up close with a human!” my father bellowed. “You know that is breaking the law”
“I know Father, but I only asked him what was wrong!” I said gently.
“YOU TALKED TO HIM!” my father shouted. “Arrest her!”
“Father, what are you doing? Father, I’m your daughter, Piper! FATHER!” I shouted as the guards carried me through the door.
I knew I was never Father’s favorite. He adored my brother Walter. After Walter died in a boat accident, Father was never the same again. He had a short temper and didn’t care for anyone. It wouldn’t matter to him if I was gone. I’m just Piper, just Piper.

So? How do you like it? Do you want more? Put it in the comments below. 30 Day coming later today!
