A storm was definitely likely to arrive that day.
The dark clouds were swirling threateningly overhead, and a rumbling thunder could be made out. The waves were now churning and tumbling aggressively over the seashore, and it was absolutely obvious that no one with a sense of sanity would be outside in this weather.
Despite this, a powerful sea current and a swishing tail brought attention towards a lone figure hurriedly swimming to the surface of the water – absolutely oblivious and undeterred by the storm.
With an audible gasp, the figure broke through the seal of two worlds that could not mix – The Sea and the sky.
Pain burned though it's lungs, unaccustomed to the unfamiliar air. At first, every breath was like a stab to its throat, but the burning slowly faded away to a dull throbbing. Breathing heavily, the figure began to swim strongly.
Gripping the sharp object firmly in its hands, it stopped, making out the shoreline on the distance. "I have to hurry…" the figure whispers, propelling herself.
Within a few moments, its tail began to brush the sand below. Taking a deep breath, it scanned the shoreline for that familiar pink hair, that sister.
A loud gasp and a small sob were choked down as the figure laid eyes upon the woman sitting on the edge of the water. It waved frequently, desperate to capture the attention of the woman, but to no avail. Sighing in frustration, the shadow gripped onto the dagger and brought it up to the lone rock beside it. Scraping the blade down the rough surface, the girl's eyes immediately shot up to the figure in surprise, letting out a little cry as she recognised her.
She jumped up quickly, rushing into the water and uncaringly soaking her lavish dress thoroughly. "Luka!" the figure cried happily, swimming into the girl's arms and embracing her strongly. Glancing up at the blue eyes of her sister, she was delighted to see her sister looking happy, despite the slight wary reflected.
"Rin… what are you doing here?" the woman whispered, confused why her sister travelled such a long distance to see her.
"Luka… Luka, Luka, Luka…" the girl sobbed quietly, tightening her grip on her sister. Luka brushed her blonde locks with her delicate fingers, patting her on the back softly. "Sorry," she cried, wiping away her tears. "I-I've just missed you so much…" she managed to stifle through hiccups.
"Shh… don't you think I've missed you too, Rin?" Luka cooed, continuingly running her fingers through her hair. "I don't think it's safe for you to be here though," she added, her voice laden with worry.
The moon suddenly poked out from the clouds, its light reflecting on the sea. Everything had turned calm and tranquil, the bitter thrashing of the waves stopping.
"I know," Rin sniffled, rubbing her eyes, "but that's not the reason I came here." She brought the shining blade into view, smiling sadly. Eyeing the dagger with a sudden caution, Luka flinched.
"What… What is that for?" she asked, her tone desperate. Rin, not wanting to answer the question, sighed gloomily.
"You know what it's for, sister. You… You…" she paused, lowering her voice to a barely audible whisper, "have to k-kill him…" There was no other option, if she wanted to save her sister.
The pink-haired woman's expression changed in a heartbeat, from a smile to a horrified frown.
"Rin! No! I-I can't! I… I love him!" Luka exclaimed. Tears began to flow from her blue eyes, dripping into the water silently, causing ripples to spread across the clear water.
The blonde clenched the dagger tighter, holding it close. Honestly… this wasn't easy for her too. But… she was her sister… she wouldn't let her go so easily. "You have to, it's your last chance, Luka," she begged. Holding out the dagger to her, she pressed on. "Please, please take it. We'll be together again; talk together again, be sisters again. Remember how much fun we had together?" she cried, starting to cry. "Luka… I can't live without you. I miss you so much…"
"Back to normal…?" the woman whispered with wonder, her brow wrinkling in thought. With a quick glance at the shimmering orange tail that was connected to Rin's waist, gleaming underneath the water, she nodded slightly. Seeing this, the girl placed the sharp metal into Luka's hands.
"Do it before the clock strikes midnight." Rin pleaded, gazing into her sister's eyes. Wrapping her arms around the woman once more, they embraced for what seemed like seconds, but in reality were precious minutes.
With that last sentence, Rin turned and dove back into the water, vanishing with a quiet splash beneath the waves. The mermaid took one last glance at her sister above, and then disappeared into the darkness.
She only hoped that Luka would be able to kill him.
