said Ariel in a slight hysterical tone. Aquata was Ariel sister who
lived in the sea with her father King Triton, and the rest of Ariel sisters.
Before she became the bride of Prince Eric, Ariel had herself been a mermaid.
A life she freely gave up for love. Aquata was Ariel's older sister
and she could tell Ariel was upset. So she quickly tried to calmed
her fears. 'If everything at home is alright. Then your coming
here on such a night must have something to do with Eric." said Ariel.
Aquata turned away not knowing how to tell the news. She turned back
to her little sister drenched and shivering from the cold. Ariel
looked so small and frail that Aquata reached her arms out and embraced
her. Aquata told her the bad news about how Dawn, the sister of,
'Ursula the sea witch' who was killed by Eric when he rescued Ariel. Had
captured Eric out of revenge, and that she wanted Ariel to give herself
up, to become Dawns slave for all eternity. If she did, Dawn would
free Eric. Ariel went into a panic, "How do I get to Dawn?
What do I need to do?" She told Ariel that Dawn had made a potion
for Ariel to take, but Aquata refused to give it to her. Ariel became angry,
and then she pleaded even begged. But Aquata refused to give it to here,
she loved her little sister, and she knew she was head strong and seldom
thought out what she was going to do. After a long argument she finally
convinced Ariel to seek another way. One where she would not be bound
under any spell to that witch Dawn. So the two parted after making
arrangement to meet again, and Ariel returned to the palace. She
took a long worm bath and then fell into a deep sleep.
dream took her to a place she had been once has a child. The palace
of Poseidon. Her great grandfather, ruler of the sea at the beginning
of time. In fact for many a mer-man it seemed only a legend.
When she awoke a cold chill came over her. For in her dream she was
standing on a rock with the raging sea all around her. The wind was
tearing her child from her arms. At the same time Eric was being
pulled under the water and was calling for help all the while Posidon was
laughing. She know that he always exacted a terrible price.
A price that often cost more then what one received from him. Still
to free Eric I would do anything, she told herself. Just then the
baby rolled over and her stomach kicking her hard. She felt her child
inside knowing it was not just her life anymore, if it was, she gladly
give it for her beloved Eric. "What can I do," she muttered to herself,
and began to weep silent tears for her beloved.
