What It Took
Morgan never felt like she fit in at school, being half human and half mermaid, and she saw herself as the school’s biggest outcast. She led a quiet life with her water nymph guardian, trying to keep her identity a secret in a school of mortals and mythical creatures. Tormented daily by head cheerleader and pixie, Ginger, Morgan finds herself rescued by Leroy, Folly high school’s hot new quarterback and vampire, who asks her out on a date. However, Leroy is not all that he seems, and Morgan’s life becomes increasingly complicated, confusing and frightening.
Emmaline, a mythical creature herself, moves with her family to Folly and is instantly drawn to Morgan. When the song, “Voodoo” by Emmaline’s favorite singer, Alexz Johnson, seems to play on her car stereo every time Morgan is around, she begins to realize that the song’s words have a message for her, and she soon discovers that she is destined to save Morgan—but from what, whom or how, she does not know. As the two spend more time together, Emmaline tries to keep her feelings for Morgan separate from her duty to keep Morgan safe, but it soon becomes impossible to deny the intense desires of her heart. Morgan soon discovers the depth of Emmaline’s feelings and her undying devotion as she learns . . . what it took.

“What?” I cried. “New York City! For the weekend! Aren’t you excited?” She began to bounce up and down. “Why?” I asked. “Well, I’ve got a few jobs there this weekend, and there’s this big party tomorrow night…” She slowly trailed off. I shook my head. “Tupaia,” I whined. “You know I don’t do parties. … Continue reading What It Took To Realize- Chapter Three
