“The water felt less welcoming and more closed. All the rainbows started to collapse and turn into Skittles. Towering over the water was a big fat man in a scientist coat, holding an open bottle, pouring it in the water.”
Once in a pretty blue ocean was a mermaid… unicorn… cat. Yes, a mermaid unicorn cat. With long pink, blue, and purple ears, a scaly mermaid tale, and a long unicorn horn.
“I love my life,” she told her friend, Maria, who has short black hair, and doesn’t have a unicorn horn or cat ears. She’s just a mermaid.
Maria said, “Unicaid, you never know what could happen. Your life could turn into cloudy dark skies here in the ocean.”
“But it’s so nice here! How could anything bad ever happen here?”
“You never know.”
Just then, skies did turn cloudy and dark. The water felt less welcoming and more closed. All the rainbows started to collapse and turn into Skittles. Towering over the water was a big fat man in a scientist coat, holding an open bottle, pouring it in the water.
“What- what is that?” asked Unicaid.
“Now that, my friend, is just what I was talking about what could happen.”
“Who- who are you?” asked Unicaid.
“I am the Toxicky Water Scientist named Doctor Unsmartypants.”
“What are you pouring in the water?” asked Maria.
“Toxicky water, because I’m the Toxicky Water Scientist! Duh!”
“We have to stop this!” said someone.
“I know!” said others.
Unicaid asked, “But how?”
“Oh, I know,” said Maria. “We can get a filter from the outside world with clean water and help our world!”
“I have some friends from the outside world,” said Unicaid, “and I know where they live! They all have filters! And I bet they could lend one to us.”
“Okay. It’s kind of creepy that you know where they live, but all right,” said Maria. “Good idea.”
They slipped out of the water and started slithering down the road.
“So… I know the street, but not exactly the house—”
“Wait, what?” asked Maria.
“I’m sorry! But don’t worry. We can knock on all the doors and ask what door Alena Smith is on!”
“Everyone will just scream!” exclaimed Maria.
“Why?” asked Unicaid.
“Ya know. We’re not the same species!”
“Oh… yeah. But I bet it will be alright.”
“Fine!!!” Maria seemed to be getting mad. “Let’s do this.”
They knocked on one door. No answer.
At the second door there was an answer! But it was: “Ahhhhhhhhhh!” The lady screamed.
“Told you!” Maria said selfishly.
“Ayayayay!” Unicaid exclaimed, “Braggy braggy!”
They slithered down to the next door and knocked on the third door. “Whoah!” was the reply, “Who are you?”
“I’m Unicaid! And this is my friend, Maria,” Unicaid said proudly.
“Ahh! Yes! Unicaid!” The lady said, “Alana has told me so much about you! I’m Lea. Nice to meet you!”
Lea had long, brown, curly hair, and skin the color of chocolate.
“You too!” Maria seemed relieved.
“So where does she live?”
“Oh, Alana? Why do you need to talk to her? Is anything wrong?”
“Well,” Maria started, “This toxicy water scientist came and—”
“Toxicated up the water?
“Umm, yeah, basically.”
“So why do you need Alana for that?”
“We wanted to get a filter from her house so we could help save our ocean,” said Unicaid.
“Oh, I have a filter,” Lea said. “You can use it if you want.”
“That would be great! Thank you!” Maria said, seeming even more relieved.
Lea went inside and gave them the filter. Then Unicaid and Maria thanked her as they slithered back into the ocean.
“We got a filter!” They said as they plopped it in the water. It sounded like when you put a penny into a fountain. Dr. Unsmartypants tried to stop them, but it was too late. It was already in. Everyone cheered for them, except for the scientist.
“Why? Why? Why?” Dr. Unsmartypants said, seeming very, very, very frustrated. He towered over the water and walked away.
“Yay! Hooray for Unicaid and Maria!” And suddenly the water felt more welcoming, less closed, and the dark skies went away. All the Skittles turned back into rainbows, and everything was okay.
