The Dark Ocean
“Where are we now?” Cameron asked. “Near the dark ocean, I guess.” I answered. Everything around us was white! It was creepy. “Well, let’s go!” Cameron said filled bravado. “Okay, but where?” I asked. “Uh…. Let’s just go!” Cameron yelled bravely. Then she marched off. I just shrugged and followed behind.
On the way there, I began to notice that Cameron wasn’t in sight. “Huh? Where did she go?” I thought as I looked around. I finally caught a glimpse of her. She was disappearing. At first, I thought something was wrong with my eyes. I blinked hard but the picture didn’t change. Within seconds, Cameron disappeared! I was mortified. “Mitchell!” I heard her cry. “Cameron?!? Where are you?!? What happened?!?” I asked frantically. “I’m at the dark ocean. I started to doubt finding Sopphina, That’s when I started to disappear. Come find me! Come find me at the dark ocean!” her voice echoed. “But where is that?” I asked. But her voice said no more. So that is how I ended up drifting in middle of nowhere.
I sat down feeling fragile, drained, and confused. I laid back and shut my weary eyes. And when I fell asleep, a voice came to me.
“Young warrior! Why are you quitting now?” the voice asked me. “It’s too hard! I can’t do! I don’t know the way to the dark ocean!” I answered. “The way to the ocean is in your heart! Believe in yourself! Cameron is waiting for you!” the voice yelled.
With those words, my hope in finding Cameron, Kohana, and the dark ocean came back again. When I woke up, I saw the dark ocean in a pathway. So I got up and walked through the pathway.
