Eventually he slipped back down into the water and away, I ran back along the dock and went to the next door neighbor's yard (which was a pool, but was the ocean) and we hung out. I saw my husband and three year old playing on the far side of the yard, and knew that the Orca would come back and get her. I could SEE him sliding up on the sand and grabbing her, then slipping back into the ocean with the tide. I was yelling for my husband to get her out of there when I saw a black shape coming and I woke up.
So I'm all freaked out and not really awake and I'm waiting for my coffee to finish brewing to really wake me up.
On a different note, I am becoming more and more obsessed with the Best. Couple. Ever. (No, not McGonagall and Neville, but you will all soon see what I see.) Ron and Hermione. VincintVeritas and I discussed good R/Hr fics (Marlo, you recced me somegood ones, too) and I found a terrific epic story that is still 8 chapters from being done (but if Checkmated.com ever gets on line, it's there, complete.) It's The Price of Love by RogueSugah on FFN. Really cool weapon that Hermione develops, too. And it involves loooooooove. Few spelling mistakes, but the plot and characters (esp. Twins) are terrific. It's R.
Coffee's done, and now it's time to let the killer whale slip back into the abyss. (This couldn't be related to my older, bossy sister having left yesterday from her trip here, now could it????)
