The doctor wanted to sedate me but I told them to hold on for some time.
I told them that I needed to see someone first.
I laid down on my bed with a drip down my arm.
I was really tired but I was waiting to see someone important.
Immediately my door opened and I quickly looked up.
It was Derek
I hissed and laid back
Derek: whoah, man what’s up with you? You’re looking terrible
I looked away
At this point, Derek is the last person I want to see
He’s going to say some pretty nasty stuff
Derek: how are you doing?
Me: I’m fine
I sat up
Derek: so Someone kidnapped you again?
Me: I don’t know
Derek: were ladies among the kidnappers? You know in the movies, there’s always a sexy beautiful bad girl.
I sighed because I was expecting something like that
Me: do you think about anything else but women?
Derek: I think of wine, so I can get drunk and get a woman to spend the night with
Me: I have a feeling you’re going to change very soon
Derek: me too. I’m getting old already, it’s high time I settled down like you’re about doing. You know, get a family
Derek : hell no! That bitch can’t be a responsible mother and wife
Me: then break up with her
Derek: bruh, it’s been awhile we sat down to talk. You know, man to man, like old times. I broke up with her even before I got shot
I sighed as he stood up
He went to the living room and came back with a bottle and a glass of wine
I knew that was why he went back to the living room
Me: I really need to see someone
Derek: don’t worry, she’s coming
Derek: I saw her while I was heading up here. She didn’t see me though
I was glad she was already in Edinburgh
I really wanted to hug her for saving my life
If she wasn’t there, that bullet would have projected straight into my forehead.
Derek: want some?
He filled the glass and stretched his hand towards me
Me: are you crazy? You think I’m a wine lover like you?
He laughed and the door opened
It was her
I jerked up immediately
Blue : Adrian
She ran and threw her arms around my neck in a hug
I was really happy to have her in my arms
We looked at each other for about two seconds then began to kiss passionately
Derek: ahhhh, seriously??
We didn’t care
Derek: okay I’m leaving
Then he left
We disengaged and she chuckled
Me: I miss you
Blue : you miss me?
I pecked her neck
Blue : that means you’re still missing me now
Me: well, now it’s no longer I miss you but I missed you. Because you’re with me now
Blue : you’re so sweet
She played with my cheek and I laughed
Blue : I went to the cottage to get those security cameras
Me: really, you went to Stirling?
Blue : Adrian, there are lots of things I have to tell you. So many weird things happened. I found out that I have new….
Immediately Derek walked in
Derek: I’m sorry, but I forgot my wine bottle
Blue sighed in relief
She almost busted out her secret
I smiled and squeezed her fingers softly
Me: maybe we should just lock our door
Derek: why, is there something you want to do?
Me: jeez, Derek…
Blue : haha, when I went to Stirling, I saw a baby who’s name was Derek
Derek: really, is he handsome?
Blue : he was cute. And he was crying
Derek: that’s impossible. Dereks don’t cry
Me: okay sir Derek Kit, excuse Prince Adrian and his betrothed please… That’s an order
He smirked and left.
Blue stood up and closed the door
Then she sat down beside me again
Blue : I have new powers
Me: I don’t understand
Blue: my powers have upgraded Adrian. I can do so much more now
Me: explain more
Blue : well, my tail and hair changed while I was underwater. And the new look came with new powers. I could make anything happen. That’s why I could make us invisible when we came to you
Me: wow, awesome. I was wondering too. This is really amazing
Blue : can you believe I made Rainbow and I appear in Stirling within two minutes
Me: whoah, can you get me a blueberry pie?
She laughed and it appeared immediately
Blue : wanna eat.?
Me: yeah I do
I left Adrian’s room and went to see my mother in one of the rooms
I knocked and it opened by itself.
I entered and it closed
My mother walked out wearing oven gloves
Mother: I’m sure you enjoyed my blueberry pie
Mother: where do you think it came from? The sky?
Me: mother how did you know?
She removed the gloves
Mother: you have new powers and new underwater looks
Me: yeah, but why
Mother: there’s a reason. You’re a unique mermaid
She sat down beside me
Mother: every 500 years, there’s a special magic released on a special mermaid. It enables that mermaid do extraordinary things. And it changes the look of her so every mer-being that sees her, knows her identity
And your task Blue, is to restore Neptune’s City
Me: but, how can I be the special mermaid? I mean, I was just an average mer-girl back then
Mother: yes you were. But not anymore. You were rejected and thrown out for a crime you didn’t commit. You forgave them and moved on. Then you lived a free human life and you’re the first mermaid to be betrothed to a human Prince without throwing off your identity into the mud.
Isn’t that enough reason to be special?
She smiled really brightly
Me: gosh, mother this is so awesome. I thought the powers came because I was molested by a human
Mother: no, if it’s that then Rainbow too should have even more powers
I hugged her
Mother: but wait… Be careful how you use those powers
I disengaged from the hug
Mother: do not order things around except you really really need them
Me: why, is there a repercussion?
Mother: don’t you know that those things are coming from somewhere? I was baking pies and when one disappeared, my instincts told me it was you
Me: okay, I understand perfectly
Then I left to see Cadio after spending a few more minutes with her
Me: here’s a video of Oliver giving orders to some men to take Adrian to Douglas
She took the phone and watched the video
Blue : he’s really bursted this time
Fabio : yeah, he is
She looked at him
Blue : but how did you video this?
Fabio : there’s a phone in my breast pocket. It’s recording everything. No one actually knows about this. I did it because Cadio told me about you and the Prince and about Belinda
He looked at me and I laughed
I don’t hide anything from him.
We’re partners in crime
I guess that’s why we stayed in one place for nine months without fighting.
We’re not identical twins though
But we have similarities in height and taste
Blue : so what next?
Me: we should take this to Adrian himself. He’ll know who to meet.
Blue : plus my video
Fabio : yeah, we’ve got enough evidence
Blue : thanks a lot guys. I really don’t know how to thank you enough
I smiled happily
Me: anything for you Blue
The case was taken to my dad who wasted no time in bringing Oliver down to judgment.
The psycho created a funny scene that went viral on the internet.
He said he wasn’t the man in the video.
He even denied his name and his identity
We all thought he was trying to frame up something but medical checkups were ran on him and he was declared an insane person.
He had mental disorder
Since he’s really rich, his folks sent him to a highly professional psychiatric hospital for medical assistance and therapy.
Anyway I’m expecting Gabriel, my cousin who’s a model and actor in Brazil.
He promised to come for Adrian’s wedding.
And the wedding is just in two months, if not less than already
Prince Adrian and I are going to Italy in about a week.
We’re going to shop for our wedding tuxedos and all those stuff
I don’t know where Blue is going yet
Or maybe the best designers will be hired to do the job for her
I have a really great feeling about this wedding
It’s really going to be awesome
The way things are going, the wedding is going to shake the whole of planet earth
And it’s high time I got my bride too
Being a player is outdated already
Gosh I’m gonna miss my flight
Belinda caused this
She took my keys and went out without my knowledge
And now I’m so late
Adrian, is really going to make my skin turn blue
I hurried down the stairs
I’m actually living on my own now but Belinda came to see me yesterday and today she took my car.
I went to my garage and carried my second car.
I quickly asked my driver to take me to the airport
I got down and hurried down the lobby.
I wasn’t looking and I bumped into someone accidentally
Me: goodness, I’m so sorry. I wasn’t concentrating
Lady: it’s okay. I wasn’t concentrating either
I looked at her face and smiled
Her ticket was on the floor, I bent down and took it.
She was also headed for Italy
Me: I guess we’re headed the same way
Lady: really, Italy?
I nodded and handed her the ticket
Me: what’s your name?
Lady : Lydia
Me: I’m Derek
Lydia : nice meeting you Derek
Me: nice meeting you too Lydia
Then we began to walk together
Adrian called me and said I should hurry up
The announcement said the plane to Italy would take off in thirty minutes
Lydia and I began to run
We checked in and had our luggage scanned and all those airport stuff
Then we ran into the plane.
When we got in, we began to laugh
Lydia : that was close
She had cute dimples and black hair.
Lydia : ohh, that’s my seat
She pointed to a seat
Me: whoah, are you staying here?
Me: no, you should come to first class with me
Her jaw dropped
Lydia : First Class?
Lydia : I don’t have a ticket for that
I held her hand
Me: I’ll take care of that. Quick let’s go, the plane would soon take off
Lydia : are you sure it’s okay that way
Me: I’m more than sure
Lydia : okay, thanks. It’s gonna be my first time in First Class
Me: and you’re going to enjoy it
