19. No myth

"King Neptune? You mean the party guy in charge of the ceremony for people crossing the equator in ships?" I asked.

"No, not that phony. I mean the real King Neptune." Saul Sole replied.

"But King Neptune is only a myth!" I said reasonably.

"Oh, Better not let HIM hear you say that!" Saul said, "He gets very upset whenever anybody says he is only a myth and sometimes reacts with storms, strong currents, riptides and whirlpools."  

"But isn't he a myth?" I said--still not convinced.

"Nope. He's as real as you and me!" Saul replied. "Tell you what-- you can go with us and return his lost trident to him in person if you like."
