Chapter 1

 

Catalina squinted up at the night sky at the constellation of a prince. He was holding a flower gentally, and was bending down as if he was trying to gift his flower to an elegant princess . She squinted even more, trying to make out the shape of a young woman delighted to be with the gentleman. Then the door behind her fluttered open and a noise of a small step on a tiny wooden stair was heard by the stargazing lady.

 

“Catalina, te estás perdiendo tanto en el interior. Este es tu día, mi amor. ¡Celebrar!” Catalina, you are missing so much inside. This is your day,my love. Celebrate!

 

It was an invitation. Catalina ignored the deep voice of the man and closed her eyes, taking deep breaths frequently. Her hands gripped the bottom of her red dress as her hair was pushed by the cold,delicate breeze of Sparrow Island. Finally, she managed a squeak out of her mouth.

 

“No, quiero quedarme aquí.”

No, I want to stay here.

She had rejected what her father had said. He made a loud,vicious grumble and then sighed, remembering that his child was turning 12, and things were changing for her. For instance, she was becoming more stubborn and preferred to be alone outdoors staring at the sky. The frustrated man opened his mouth to utter something to encourage Catalina to come indoors with her mother, when a vociferous cry rang both of their ears.

 

Catalina and her father ran to the small, brown house only to find the young woman who was supposed to be waiting for them,gone. What was now left was Catalina’s knocked down birthday cake and a smashed window.

 

“¡Mama!” the worried child cried out with tears in her small eyes. “¡MAMA!” There was no sound, not even a pin drop. The father hugged his crying 12 year old, muttering the words, “El Mal ha venido otra vez.”

                                         The Evil have come again.

Catalina was clutching the man’s chest tightly with pain rushing through her heart. The only thing left was sorrow and anguish. And the loss of a dear mom and an island.

To be honest, I am not Spanish. But the story is about a Spanish island, so I had to use google translate. If you want to read the summary, go to

COOL!!! Though for anyone who doesn't speak Spanish, maybe provide a translation? But it seems pretty good and I'd like to read more.

The translations is:

“Catalina, te estás perdiendo tanto en el interior. Este es tu día, mi amor. ¡Celebrar!” ="Catalina, you're missing so much inside. This is your day, my love. Celebrate!"

“No, quiero quedarme aquí.”="No, I want to stay here."

                                             Y

 “El mal ha venido otra vez.”="Evil has come again."

Yeah, maybe I should. BTW, thanks MARÍA!
