“THE KING HAS ARRIVED!” the guards shout. The sea is parting in 2 separate ways as if it needs to make place for something majestic. Slowly a mighty figure is walking towards the shore. I can’t take my eyes of the man rising from the sea. He must be at least two meters long and more importantly, he’s completely naked. I have never seen a man naked before but if they all look like this I can't complain. I study his body first from his long muscular legs to his impressive abs and wide shoulders. I quickly take a glance at his manhood and think to myself that it looks enormous compared to the pictures I have seen in books. His face is much different than I expected. He has golden blond hair with green eyes and a strong jawline. No one told me the King of the sea was this handsome. Which makes me wonder or anyone still would mind being sacrificed now. Suddenly the king is in front of me. His green eyes look at me coldly and he says, “Turn around for me.” I hold my ground and won’t move. I am not some piece of meat to be examined. And a hello first would have been nice. Who the hell does he think he is? The King gets an annoyed look on his face and then makes his hand into a fist. I immediately feel my lungs fill with water and I can't breathe. The King looks at me with no emotion when he says, “You will not disobey me. If I say you must turn around, you turn around without hesitation. If is ask you a question then, you will address me as your King. Am I clear?” I feel my head get all fuzzy but then he unclenches his fist. I gasp for air and say, “Yes my King.” I decided then and there that I hate this dominant guy. “Hold out your hand,” he commands. I do what he says and he takes my small hand in his big hand. His hands are surprisingly soft for such a big brute. The moment our hands touch a light between them begins to shine. The light glows around us like a big bright star. People around me gasp, so I assume this hasn't happened before. The King looks at me with a look that I can't understand. “At last I have found you,” he says. Before I know it he has picked me up in his arms as if I am as light as a feather, and he walks towards the sea with me in his arms.
