At last Sara reached her fifteenth year.  �Well, now, you are old enough to make your visit to the surface,� said her father a little sadly; �please be careful for I love you very much.�

Sara hugged her father and said, �Farewell,� then swam as lightly as a bubble to the surface of the water.  The sun had just set as she raised her head above the waves; but the clouds were tinted with crimson and gold, and through the glimmering twilight beamed the evening star in all its beauty.  A large ship floated calmly in the distance, with only one sail set; for not a breeze blew, and the sailors sat idle on deck or amongst the rigging.  There was music and song on board; and, as darkness came on, a hundred colored lanterns were lighted to glow prettily in the night.
