Krin's life has not improved since yesterday. Please (shhhh) don't tell her how much worse it's going to get, okay? She's already got enough problems.

The dauntingness of three nights and days on these abysmal rocks shot through me. I raised my head to the sky and shouted as loud as I could, "Great God, if you're out there, right now would be a good time to start taking care of me. I'm cold and I'm wet and I'm hungry and I think this is a really bad way to treat those who are trying to follow in your way. It isn't fair!"

There was no echo, only laughter.


I had never imagined the Great God's laughter, but if I had, it wouldn't have sounded like my sisters.

And there we have it. Krin about to discover the mermaids. I did tell you there were mermaids, didn't I? Oh well. There are.

I love that line about God's laughter sounding like her sister's.

Mermaids? Great! I would read a story with mermaids!

You are doing great-you are 10000 words ahead of me! hahahaha

Thanks Chris, and big hugs back. You just keep on keeping on and one day we'll both be on the shelf. In a good way!
