There was no way she could keep this to herself. Not without going completely mad, of course. For now, she didn't care that Amy was on some beach holiday without a worry in the world. Deep down, Amy was Riccashaye and it was important she knew what was going on.
Melissa, in a panic, prodded the buttons through her cellphone. She lifted the phone up and waited. And waited
. When she finally thought Amy wasn't going to pick up, that was when she did.
"Hello, um, this is Amy" Amy replied.
"Hi, it's Melissa, this is really, really important." Melissa said, nervous and not really getting to the point.
"Its about Hymder." She stated. It suddenly felt not important anymore. "Everyone in Hymder has disappeared. And apparently... Felix is in the real world."
Amy seemed uninterested, clearly involved in something exciting. "Um, okay? Look, see you at the end of the holidays"
The conversation ended, although it seemed like it never really began.
It didn't even sound like Amy speaking, not even Riccashaye, or Jez or any of her other alter egos. Melissa, and Violet, were disappointed. They'd just have to push it out on their own.
Amy would be back soon of course. The holidays were almost over....
A week later
A week later, it was as if the holiday never happened. Melissa, had suddenly developed an odd fear of water. She wandered aimlessly around the house, eyeing the taps. What if someone saw her turn into a mermaid? She would have
to confront Amy about this, because they are best friends.
Melissa flopped onto Amy's bed. "Hey, I'm just going to get us a glass of water." Amy said. Melissa grunted, without thought. As Amy casually walked back into the room Melissa's eyes widened.
"Amy, stop!" She said, trying to keep her voice down. "I can't have water, otherwise I'll turn into a mermaid.
