14. I wish my family'd calm down finally

Honestly, nothing much had happened anyway. It's not as if we're still in the last century. Sure I flooded their wardrobes and … erm, surprised my sisters somewhat, but no damage was done at all. Dad came to our rooms nearly immediately to see why he'd suddenly had that weight on him - from protecting the floors from getting any water damage! (Really, I had counted on that. … Ok, maybe not, I've forgotten floors could be damaged. Still, nothing bad can happen with dad in the house.) So he immediately blew all the water out of the window.

The clothes were nearly dry right away from all the power he had put into getting the water out, so they only had to hang in the garden for an hour or two. I even helped (had to help…) hang them up!

And then they forced me to fold all the clothes afterwards despite the many lines I still had to write! So, really, they got their revenge, and that harmless bit of water did no damage to anyone. Wasn't as if I'd flooded the entire house. That would have been more fun, I'd say, but not as harmless a joke as flooding three little closets.

Really. I don't get all the excitement here. Luckily dad's too cool to get worked up about nothing. (Nearly nothing.)

Someone's father is spoiling her! Though OTOH, he's also encouraging her desire to chase her talents early, so there's both good and bad in it. :)

Well, the kid was punished ... somewhat. Mostly to clean up the mess and stand in the corner for a while, but still. The girls would have screamed their heads off about this being so unfair had the father shielded the little rascal completely.

You know, I didn't connect the story about the girl on the ocean with this story about the flooded wardrobes. I meant to write this one as a new story but apparently they can be read as being about the same person. That's why you assume the storyteller is a girl, right?

So far I think I haven't mentioned the storyteller's gender, and while at first I thought they might be a girl I later thought, hey, behaves a bit like a boy. - It could explain their attitude, I guess it's more common in boys than in girls, and would maybe explain the father's behaviour, too.

I don't know. I just started writing, there was no pre-planning. I do seem to have a thing about supernaturally playing with water, though. On writerverse I once wrote this story about a girl playing in the garden, making water to ice the way other kids build cakes in the sandpit.

But really, water does have something magical. So relaxing standing on a bridge, just taking a few minutes to loooooook at the water, and all worry falls off for a while. <3

Now you got me thinking. Girl? Boy? Does it matter? #writing #is #an #adventure
