Sihwa felt the tremor in her sleep and finally woke up. When she moved, the white whale knew that she was waking up, so it slowed down and suspended itself in the middle of the sea. Where… is this place? She tried to open her eyes and look at the darkness around her, but she could not see anything. The white whale told her that they were in the deeper parts of the sea floor and right below them was hot lava. It was not until the warmth enveloped her that she realized how cold she was. She had almost died. She had been in the cold for too long in the swimming pool. Even if she was an elfin, she was unable to withstand the cold day after day. It was the white whale who had saved her.
