Well ! Well! They are even more beautiful than last year !
When the Water People come, Triflora stops still and everyone breathes in deeply.
Surely nothing can be as wonderful as the Water People singing and playing.
As for the People of the Water Worlds, they LOVE the PARTY FOR NO REASON AT ALL. Beings from Water all over Triflora come. The Beings of the Creeks Rivers and the Beings of the oceans and seas, the lakes and ponds all come together. The Party Place is set up perfectly for the Water People.
The sound of their singing is a very mysterious thing.
It seems to come from far away and from close to you.
It seems to come from under you and over you.
It is like the most perfect wave in the ocean.
It is like the highest waterfall and the widest river.
It simply bubbles with joy and magic.
There are more beings in the Water than most people have ever dreamed of.
Nerissa’s people came up from the Well. As you know, they can live on Land or Underwater.
It so happened that Alyx was at that very moment, leaning over the edge of the Well and looking for Water as she so often did. She was singing the Water songs and didn’t know how it was that she knew ALL THE WORDS and ALL THE TUNES.
Suddenly, she thought she saw something move in the Well and leaned far over the little wall to see what it was.
Whoops! She tumbled way down into the water and almost landed on Nerissa’s Party People as they swam to the top of the Well. Everyone was very surprised.
Alyx had never seen people who looked quite like her. Alyx had NO idea that she could breathe underwater. She had never tried it before. Not even once.
Nerissa’s People were not expecting a Sea Shellian child to tumble on top of them on Day 2 of the Party.
Alyx looked around and thought to herself;
I have found my home.
THERE IS NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING QUITE AS WONDERFUL AS FINDING YOUR REAL HOME.
