Blue really had love for shells.
She always brings them home whenever they go out.
This fateful day, Blue found a very unique shell.
It was sparkling and reflecting a light blue color.
Blue was so happy with it, she carried it everywhere and used it as a necklace.
Rainbow felt deserted because Blue had little time for her.
She was always taking care of the shell like it was a living thing.
Rainbow got fed up
Rainbow : Blue has no time for me anymore. She’s now replacing me with that useless shell. Just because it’s blue. I’ll just change my tail into blue too. Or I’ll deal with the shell myself
She swam to Blue’s room and took the shell on the special rock where Blue keeps it.
Blue came inside and didn’t see it.
She saw Rainbow swimming out and followed her.
But Rainbow had already thrown the shell on a rock and it was broken.
Blue didn’t know but Rainbow became very paranoid and guilty.
She felt that Blue would suspect her
Especially when she started to look for it.
Rainbow would start shivering and stammering when she was with Blue.
Blue : I really hate what is happening? My shell that is so important to me. Why is it missing?
Rainbow : what… Missing…. Wow… How can… how can it be missing? Gosh… well.. I really don’t… Uhmm… Well…. I have to go…. Bye
Then she swam away and hid behind a rock
Rainbow : oh no! Blue is going to find out. I’m so scared. I have to avoid her.
Then she began to avoid Blue carelessly.
Blue noticed and approached her
Blue : what’s up with you Rainbow? Why are you acting so weird?
Rainbow : no nothing. I’m not avoiding you, I’m…i didn’t… do anything at all
Blue : when you act this way, you’ve done something crazy. What did you do this time Rain?
She tried to swim away but Blue held her hand
Blue : tell me
Rainbow : I threw away your shell. I broke it deliberately
Blue : whaaaaat!
Blue was really angry with Rainbow
She yelled at her and swam away angrily
Rainbow began to cry
She went home and stayed there all day
Blue didn’t come to look for her and she was too scared to talk to her
It was their mothers who merged them back together after they noticed them being apart for one day.
???? Rainbow ????
After remembering what happened when we were 16 years, I got even more scared.
I cried and wished I wasn’t Gladys.
I heard from my informants that Blue and Adrian were in Edinburgh already
And that ma’am Nina is not present in Scotland yet.
I wondered where she went to
I really need to see her
She’s the only one that can help me
And I need to hear from mother too
I miss mother
What about Jace?
I sat up on my bed and began to think about Jace
I remember that he likes me too
He told me the day I fell into the grey ditch.
Oh my cutie
I miss you so much
And I was busy trying to kill people over Adrian while I have Jace
But what if he doesn’t like me again?
What if he hears about all what I’ve done and he begins to hate me?
I began to cry again
I feel really miserable
I really need to see ma’am Nina.
I need to see her
Cindy: I love this room so much Blue. It’s so big. I could ride a bike here. It’s so biggggggg
She ran round the room then jumped on the bed
Me: sshh Cindy. This is a royal castle. Be honourable
She just laughed and pulled me .
I fell on the bed and she began to tickle me
I laughed and tickled her back and we fell on the floor
Cindy: I miss Audrey, so much. When is she coming?
Cindy: okay, let’s wait for them then
I stood up
Blue : come on Cindy, let’s go out and check other things out
We got out and Prince Adrian was coming towards us
Adrian : baby
I hugged him
Cindy: his royal highness
She bowed and we laughed
Me: you’re all dressed up. Where to?
Adrian : there’s something I have to tackle
Me: won’t you rest? We just got here
I tugged on to his arms
Adrian : I know. But this is really important. I’ll be out for a few hours. But I’ll be back for dinner. My parents really want to talk with you, so look pretty as usual
Then he pecked my cheek but lingered for about two minutes, continuously sucking my flesh
I chuckled and held his waist
Me: okay baby, I love you
He pecked my lips
Adrian : I love you too. And we’re having a special dinner tomorrow. Just you and I, let’s spend some quality time together. Okay?
Me: sure sounds fun. Bye sweetheart
He kissed my forehead
Adrian : bye Cindy
He left and started making a phone call.
Immediately he was out of sight, Cindy jumped up and squealed that I had to cover my ears and close my eyes
Cindy : sooooooo coooooool……
She hugged me and was still jumping
I laughed and held her down
Cindy: this is so romantic. Awwn, so sweet ????
Me: come on, we have a royal dinner today. We have to get prepared you know, we have to be like decent and well mannered princesses
We chuckled and went into my own room
Jace: do you really have to go?
Ma’am Nina : I really have to. I’ve got this feeling like I need to do something important.
Jace: let me follow you. I have to see Blue
Ma’am Nina : oh Jace darling, you’re not so healthy. I’ll just send your regards to her
Jace: I really want to leave this place. It’s killing me slowly
Ma’am Nina : I understand, but everything will be okay soon don’t worry.
Jace: okay, tell Blue I miss her
Ma’am Nina nodded and went to Kyl’s bed
Nina : I have to go now Kyl. I’ve got a big deal to tackle back home
Kyl : I feel it too. It seems there’s someone who wants to see you desperately
Nina : yes, exactly. So I have to go
Kyl : take care of yourself. My regards to Blue and her friends. Please tell her to forgive me
Nina: it’s okay, she will Kyl
Kyl : and my regards to her prince
Nina : no problem Kyl
She hugged her and left happily
Kyl was the only one who knew where they resided, that’s in the human world.
Ma’am Nina got to the surface and became human again.
She went to the house and felt like the person was already in town.
She waited for some time and a car drove in
She stood up and walked to the front door.
Some guards came out and opened the door for a pretty young lady
Gladys: good evening ma’am
Nina looked at the car and saw an inscription PRINCESS GLADYS
Nina: Princess Gladys? You’re the Princess Gladys?
Gladys was somehow scared, maybe she would hate her too
Gladys : well…. I.. Please hear me out first…. I…
Nina : wait!
She looked sternly into Gladys eyes
Then she gasped
Nina : Rainbow!
She screamed and hugged her tight
Gladys began to cry
Nina : this is good news. Oh sweet Neptune, please come inside
Then they went inside to talk
I’m so happy for Audrey
She looks really happy and so was Clint
They fit each other so much
I’m just glad
Now Cindy is next on line
Who’s gonna be the lucky guy?
It’s definitely not Derek
I chuckled as I put on my blue shoes.
Cindy: are you excited for tonight?
She was bringing my Blue purse
Me: yeah, this is my first official date with Adrian
Audrey : awesome, tell us everything that happened when you get back
Cindy : and tell us what you ate
Audrey: and tell us how handsome he looked
Cindy: and tell us how the place looked like. Romantic ????????
Me: I’ll tell you guys everything
I stood up to go
I looked at the mirror and I knew I looked great in my shiny blue dress.
It was a body hug and flair below my knees
My shoes were blue heels and my purse was blue too.
My dress was actually sleeveless but the top was made of lace.
My hair thanks to Audrey was looking great despite the length.
Me: I’m looking so beautiful guys
I touched my cheek and they stood up to hug me
Cindy: we love you
Audrey : so much
I hugged them happily
Then there was a knock on the door.
It opened and it was Adrian’s Butler
Butler: are you ready miss?
I hugged them finally and gently followed the Butler together with two other guards.
I got into the limo and the driver drove off.
We arrived at a five star hotel
The Butler held my hand and walked me to the elevator.
Butler: miss, the prince is on the last floor
He bowed and I walked in
I pressed the keys and the elevator moved up.
It stopped and opened.
I got out but everywhere was dark.
I couldn’t see a single thing
I became scared
I moved a little bit but stopped when I heard a sound
My heart was really beating and I got my right hand ready.
If this is another kidnap, then they’re mistaken
Then a cool violin note began to play.
I didn’t know the direction of the music because it was all round.
Then a projector screen popped up right in front of me.
It made the room lighter but I was just seeing shadows around.
The light wasn’t so bright
And then some words that were in Blue curly italics, with love shapes showed up saying I’M HERE FOR YOU
Then I felt a slight touch on my shoulders
That touch was familiar
And the cologne too
He kissed my shoulder and my neck
Then he whispered
Adrian : what’s on the screen?
He moved his hands from my shoulders to my waist
I looked at the screen
It was boldly written I LOVE YOU
Then YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME came up
I smiled brightly
I WANNA CUDDLE, KISS, MAKE LOVE, FAMILY, KIDS, A HOME…. ALL WITH YOU
Me: oh my gosh
I was really loving this
And the cool music playing was really touching my soul
The next was my name in capital letters BLUE
This time, Adrian read the words out
WILL YOU MARRY ME?
My jaw dropped open and at that instance, a spotlight came over us
I quickly looked back at Adrian
He was already on one knee
His hair was so shiny and curly
He was wearing a white sleeve shirt and a blue bow tie
His trousers were white as well
He was facing down and my purse dropped when I saw what was in his hand
The most sparkling and reflecting object ever
A diamond ring in a blue sparkling box.
Me: oh my goodness…. Oh my goodness….
My hands covered my mouth
He looked up at me and smiled
The most beautiful being in my world
Adrian : Blue, when I become the King of Edinburgh, will you be my Queen?
My eyes welled up with tears
Me: yes… Yes Prince Adrian.. I will
He smiled so happily
Took my left hand, kissed it then slipped the ring on my third finger
Me: oh gosh.
He kissed my hand again
He was beaming with smiles
He got up and I swung my arms around his neck in a passionate hug
He wrapped his arms around my body and held me tight and sweet
I was already crying
Tears of joy
Then lights came up
Adrian : I love you so much
Me: I love you too
