From Mia’s Journal
Today we are leaving on the boat! I think Grandpa is nervous about going on the water but I told him that it is very safe and the water spirits will be calm. Actually I do not know if that is for sure, because after we left, the water spirits were upset. Do not go, they said, there is a very bad thing there, a big bad thing. I tried to ask them what is this bad thing, but they did not say anything else. Only “go back”. I do not think I will tell Grandpa, I do not want him to worry more. Already his crest is wrinkled from worrying.
We are still on the boat. The water spirits are staying far under the water, I can hardly hear them. It is like they are sleeping.
This is a very long trip.
Grandpa says we will get to the land today. I heard the water spirits again, but they are different ones from before. They have big voices and they sound very old. They were talking, but not to me. I wonder if they have talked with a seer before. Grandpa says we are close to a line, I don’t know what that means. But he seems very excited about it.
