This is the most random story yet. It was written in about 20-30 minutes and probably makes no sense. Hope you enjoy!

Elisa lifted up a box with ‘This Side Up’ on it. She carefully placed it down in her bedroom and locked the door. Elisa went over to her bedroom windows and shut the blinds. She looked at the box. It was a plain box; something you would normally see when someone moves houses or migrates. But just looking at it wouldn’t help you find out what it actually was. Elisa gulped. It was the first time she was going to use the box!

“Are you ready?” asked her father. She nodded.

Elisa took a deep breath. She was finally of age! Elisa opened the box to reveal a portal. “To Limestone Rivers!” she announced.

She jumped into the box and fell onto a riverbank. The sound of running water came to her and fresh air filled her lungs. She looked behind her and saw a lime green, swirly textured portal. Elisa grinned. She’d done it!

Elisa got undressed and revealed that she was wearing a magenta bathing suit. She put on her goggles and majestically dove into the depths of the river. Elisa noticed a rusty lock at the bottom of the river. She swam gracefully towards it. Suddenly, Elisa’s eyes began burning. She ripped off her goggles and the burning stopped as suddenly as it started. There was a flash of light and Elisa’s legs were replaced with a magenta tail. She was now a mermaid!

Elisa continued her swim towards the rusty lock. There was a mossy key in the lock. She turned it carefully and was sucked into a dark brown portal. The next thing she knew, Elisa had hit her head and was knocked out.

An hour later, Elisa came to and looked around. Everywhere she could see was total darkness, yet whatever that seemed to be moving around her knew where they were going. Elisa was terrified. Where was she? What was going on? She was still a mermaid, and she was definitely in water.

She swam where she hoped was upwards. The last thing she needed now was to get lost. Elisa’s head popped out of the water. Her face began burning the same way her eyes had. Elisa dunked her head back underwater. She swam back to the place she’d been previously. Elisa felt around. She felt the mossy key and the rusty lock, but this time, she didn’t turn it. Who knew what might happen this time? She found a stone and rubbed her hands on it. Elisa felt bumps on it like the alphabet. She carefully rubbed it. Elisa made out a message. It said: You mustn’t turn the key; otherwise you’ll be sent into Litramaso. Litramaso is Mermaid for ‘blinding’. Turn the key again to set things back to normal.

Elisa felt frantically for the key and turned it. Two seconds later, she had her eyesight back and she saw that the lock had the word Litramaso on it. Now she could finally live with the mermaids in peace.
