"You'll be the noisiest shark ever to live!" Cris teased as he reached out a hand to rock her floaty back and forth playfully. "The orcas do not like being ridden. They require a strong hand to tame them! And an orca is a type of whale, but most whales are much larger than an orca. Whales are the source of our magic. They are mystical, ancient beasts too gentle for anyone to harm. Those that do are sick." He frowned at the idea. "Dolphins are very nice. You could probably ride one. I will have to ask the next one I see, though I am not an omnivox--which means a mer that speaks to animals."
