This is an ancient shell
that my mother gave me a long time ago. Hold it to your ear
and listen carefully. You’ll hear the song of the sea. Mom? I’m so sorry. Say hello to Saoirse. She is not safe in this awful place! Oh, Granny. She is going to try
and make us move to the city again. At last we found her! Saoirse, run! Those stories that mom told me, they’re all true. Are you really… a selkie? What’s happening to you? All of us are connected. And we’re all sharing her fate. I have to find her!
