Megan, Derek and I sat in silence for some time, but I soon became restless and started pacing. Around and around I went, back and forth and even upside down.
“Can't you just sit still?” Derek was at last compelled to complain.
I stopped in my tracks and spun around to face him. “If I sit still, I start thinking, and I don't want to think right now.”
I didn’t respond to that last bit, since I wasn’t sure I liked it. “I’m guessing that I had to use the Ankulen to make the two of you breath underwater?”
“Yes, you did,” said Tisha. “Usually you would make us some sort of cake or fruit to eat that would give us the ability, though.”
“Once it was seaweed,” Chris supplied. He made a face. “That was nasty.”
“So I take it that I couldn’t do it now?”
“Probably not,” answered Tisha, sighing.
Derek snorted and rolled his eyes. “That's what you keep saying. Hello Peter Pan. This isn't quite how I expected Neverland to look.”
I grinned. “Seeing as how Lady Jenifer doesn't have an evil twin sister, I would deem it safe to assume that I am she.”
“Well, I was swimming with the mermaids. I was underwater. You get wet when you’re underwater.” (Jen)
