The Steed of the Blue Water

Albert and his twelve knight venture out to search for the lost Golden Dragon castle, his dowry and his path to winning Bianca as his wife. They were warned to stay away from big bodies of water and rose bushes as their were evil spirits hiding in them.

One knight named Roland became thirsty and from a woodsman heard that there was a lake of clear water just over a hill. Albert insisted that Roland stay with the group.

"You just want us to die of thirst? You only care about yourself and your bastard princess!"

Albert turned red faced. "Take that back! I should stab you right here for saying that!"

Matteo, Bianca's brother pushed Roland. Jan and Caspar grabbed Matteo.

Jan said, "Roland, we will go with you! The old man said there was water, he looked like a good Christian."

Al Baytoun rolled his eyes and clicked his tongue while Frederick, the old knight shrugged his shoulders.

"Fine!" yelled Albert, "we will camp here and rest while Roland, Caspar, and Jan go get us water from this clear lake if you are not back past noon we will come look for you and then you will be whipped for putting our party in danger."

"Yes your highness!" sneered Roland.

Roland, Jan, and Caspar walked up the hill and through the patch of woods like the old man told them. As they walked by the old man's hut that waved at him and gave him their thanks. The old man stuck his head out of his door and waved back at them. Caspar swore his eyes looked yellow.

"Oh Caspar, you are just thirsty and tired!"

They got to the lake and as the knelt by the water to fill their bottles Roland was snatched by a white hand that came out the water.

"Roland! Roland!" Jan and Caspar screamed and tried to find a stick to try to find him in the water. The stick was snatched again by a white hand that seem to come from nowhere. Jan and Caspar let it go.

"Jan, we have to save Roland!"

"But I don't want to get whipped!" said Caspar.

"Let's try to save Roland! Please Caspar!"

"But I can't swim! Can you?"

"Al Baytoun can swim! We have to go back before Roland is dead!"

"We can't go back! we promised!"

"I hate to get wet! But I will go find Roland!"

"Here, Jan, take my sword, it lights up in darkness!"

"Thank you Caspar, I promise to bring it back to you!"

Roland struggled to breathe as the white arm took him deeper and deeper into the lake. It became darker and darker until he began to see a little light.

"Am I dying?" he thought. Then he saw a castle that glowed pink. The white hand was really a mermaid but she was not at all as beautiful as the mermaids he heard about in stories. She was white as death and her hair was black. Her eyes had no whites but were yellow and she had gills on her neck. She had not one fin but two that opened up like legs. She put a glass looking bowl over his face so that he was able to breathe.

He was brought into the castle where he saw a Merman with a crown riding a giant seahorse and holding a trident. He was more frightening to look at than the female for he was larger and his teeth were like a shark's and he had long white hair and a long white beard covering his grey colored face and yellow eyes.

He was brought to the underwater fae court that his mother warned him about. Any attempts to flee were stopped by the mermaid's shrill screams that would paralyze him. He hoped that he would just die so that Albert just leave without him. Why didn't he listen to Albert? why does Albert always have to be right?

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made. It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of w

How to Attract Negative Commenters to Your Blog

I have been blogging since 2006 and one of the most interesting things is when this creature called a Troll finds your blog. A Troll is a bored scary little thing that goes through blogs, message boards, and You Tube comments saying mean, evil words creating a fight. If you've never had a troll visit your blog, it is easy to attract one. All you have to do is set a bait. Here is the bait that works the best. 1. Keep a "Conservative" blog. Extra points for being a member of the Tea Party. Trolls hate those who are Conservative and this bait successfully attracts the nastiest of trolls. Bonus points for misspelled words or bad grammer. You will suddenly get a comment about how Bush lied people died etc. 2. Write an anti- Obama post. My page views increased dramatically when I wrote a post against Obama, all were people trolling and questioning your intellect. It might not work as much now. Suddenly people will write comments questioning Bush or Reagan and how ra

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs. My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I c
