Matthew Adams / " What in heaven "

Matthew Adams / "Wait a minute , I'm not going to harm you .
Who are you and did you wreck my boat last night "

Mathew Adams / " Then you are ".

Matthew Adams / " A real live Princess from under the sea , I don't buy that one sister "
FRAME 2 / 15
Matthew Adams allows the Princess to stand up while he sits on the side of her blue underwater craft .
Marra / " I'm not your sister , and how dare you compare me with Mermaids and the Mer People .
" Tyrannians are human just like you , but we live in the Oceans . "
" Moka my Guardian is a Sea Sprite , a Grand Wizard of Lemuria "
Matthew Adams / " I must have had a worse bang on the head then I first thought "
FRAME 2 / 16
Moka / " Can I kill him this human your Highness "
Marra / " That is not allowed my Moka , you know our laws of no interference with surface humans . "
" This one seems harmless and is different to what I thought they would be like ."
" I give permission he can live "
Matthew Adams / " Thank you your Highness , for giving me permission to exist .
" But I'm still not buying this fantasy stuff ."
You can't be for real and people don't live under the sea in Empires ."
" So what is your real story , are you from outer space ."
" Mars perhaps . Moka would make a great little green Martian I think "
FRAME 2 / 17
Marra / " We are not from outer space "
" It is the truth we come from under the sea and you are one of the few surface people to meet members from our Kingdom ".
Matthew Adams " Okay I'll go along with what you say , that still leaves me with a boat and great big whole in the side . Why were you going so fast in your craft surely you have some kind of radar to detect other craft near to you " .
Marra / " We were heading back to Tyrrania and were attacked by an Imperial Battle Cruiser . Our Vimana was damaged . Our forward sensors are not working , what is radar " .
Matthew Adams / " Its a scanning system we use to detect other craft I suppose its like your sensors ".
FRAME 2 / 18
Marra / " Moka will carry out repairs to our craft and we will then be on our way".
Matthew Adams / " How does he make repairs without equipment "
Marra / " He is a wizard and his powers are immense , nothing is beyond his knowledge" .
FRAME 2 / 19
Moka begins his magic on the side of the Blue Vimanna , blending the damaged hull sections together .
FRAME 2 / 20
Matthew Adams / " We have not been formally introduced , my name is Matthew Adams " .
He looks at the Princess and offers his hand towards her .
" Let go for a walk on the beach and you can tell me more about yourself ".
The Princess takes his hand .
FRAME 2 / 21
Marra / " Very well Matthew Adams lead the way , I would like to know more about your world as well " .
FRAME 2 / 22
Matthew Adams / " I've not held the hand of a Princess before " .
Marra / " I have not held the hand of a surface human before either "
" Is this a custom of your people when they talk ".
Matthew Adams / " Sometimes when we meet your Highness , its kind of being friendly "
" I wanted to hold your hand , see if you were really real and that I was not imagining all of this "
Marra / " I am real Matthew in every way "
FRAME 2 / 23
The two of them walk along the side of the lagoon toward the beach and continue talking.......
Matthew Adams / " People living under the sea and all that , why don't we know about you or see you ".
Marra / " We keep ourselves hidden and live a separate existance from you , its been that way as long as I can remember .
"No mixing with the surface people , it was forbidden in our laws handed down at the begining of time by the Ancients , the Council of Nine "
" We know a lot about your world , ships sink , we recover the equipment and your books , learn how you live ".
Matthew Adams / " You also speak very good English , you have mastered our language well ".
FRAME 2 / 24
Matthew Adams / " Where do you live Marra , a domed city under the sea ".
Marra / " No , the city I come from is Pathos it is mostly within the cavern worlds of what you call the coast of Canada . Many ways down and with sea entrances to the great ocean" .
"We are human like you but we can breathe underwater as our ancestors went into the sea while yours stayed on land ".
" You are very different Matthew from what I thought a surface human would be like ".
FRAME 2 / 25
Matthew Adams / " So I guess meeting me must be quite something , could I see your world " .
Marra / " That will not be allowed , we cannot take surface humans there , the High Council would not allow it".
A signal on the hand scanner the Princess carries on her waist belt sounds an alarm signal . Danger is coming.....
Marra / " A Lemurian Battle Cruiser off the coast , my enemies have found me . Great danger Matthew if you are with me when they come to kill me ".
