Chapter 2

The next day I went to the beach hoping to catch her as she came out of the water but my hopes did not exhale for when I got there she was sitting on the beach singing her sweet song “she could join an opera”! I thought as I listened to her singing I did not know what she said but the music and ton of her voice put me in a dreamy state it seemed to affect all the creature even her ! I walked up to her and said “hello again”!She looked up and smiled “hello to you to” !

Then I said “do you mind if I sit next to you I would like some company today while I walk on the beach”! She said “well you may sit her but I don’t think I could walk on the beach with you and I must be going back home”! “I’ll be her in the late afternoon to watch the sunset if you come then  we can talk a bite longer”. “That’s fine by me”! I said “when will you be here” ?

”Around five”! she said ,“come anytime around five thirty and I will be ready for you”! And with that she got up and walked down the beach her blue hair flowing in the wind! I followed her again to make sure what I saw yesterday was true I hide behind the same bolder and watched as she walked into the water once her feet touched the salt water the change began the water swirled her legs disappeared and she dove into the water and all I saw was the tip of her electric blue tale splashing out of the water after that I knew I was not dreaming and I continued thinking of ways to lure her into my home, get her wet with salt water and show her to my friends. I must admit I was a very cold hearted person who cared only about the money and the news it would make. We might even be able to sell her to an aquarium and then think of all the money we would make and the News it would make and we would get very rich! The more I thought about it the more I liked the idea .She is just a sea creature” I thought “she hardly human”. “I am sure she feels just like a fish”! I laughed at the idea and started to home and waited for five to come around when it did I dashed to the beach just catching her come out of the water as she changed her form and sat on the beach the baby dolphin followed until he could go no more she patted him on his head and chirped to him in a high pitched squeak the sound hurt my hears it.i thought it sounded  very much like the sound waves of a dolphin that we picked up by sonar and it is just as high pitched it could shatter glass if any was close by! That just made me more determined to carry out my plain. “She is nothing more than a mutant animal” I said to myself as I watched her sing and the animals came close to her. I walked up to her and smiled she smiled and patted the sand with her slim hand and said “sit down the sunset is going to be beautiful tonight’! I sat down and stared into the distance thinking hard I had to think of some way to tell her that I knew who she was and that I would like to know her better so I said in a voice that would not startle her “do you believe in mermaids”? The question caught her of guard and she said “why do you ask a question like that”! I noted a little panic in her voice I said “well I am interested in sea creatures and since mermaids are sea creatures I just want to know your thoughts before I believe something stupid”!

She laughed a clear watery laugh and said “it is very stupid indeed to believe in mythical creatures” !”I guess your right”! I sighed ,then she said “why do you want my opinion you barely know me and already you are trusting me like a friend!”” I don’t even know if I can trust you”! she said her eyes narrowing “what is your purpose in these questions” ?”where is it leading to” ? “No where’! I said the sun stated setting suddenly she panicked but before she could move her legs began to swirl and there she sat with a tale shining in the moonlight she looked up at me her eyes filled with fear and then she tried to go toward the water but I caught her by the wrists. She screamed so loudly my ears popped but I wouldn’t let go, she struggled wiping her tale in my face and bruising it with her scaly tale.

I said “it’s all right I am not going to hurt you I would never hurt you I am not that kind of person “! she stopped squirming and said in a frightened voice” you won’t hand me over to the scientists then ‘? “No”! I lied ,”I wont”. she relaxed and said “I trust you” ! “ I hope you are telling the truth or you will be sorry”! She then said “please let me go I have to get back in the water before I dry up and dehydrated”! “I was so into talking to you that I lost track of time” !

I reluctantly let her go her skin was surprisingly smooth and soft like a babies face! I then watched as she flipped over to the water pulling with her hands and pushing with her tale until she got to the shore line she turned and looked at me with a cautious look on her face and disappeared into the water!

 ”why did I let her get away “?I said to myself as I turned and headed toward home I knew she probably would not come out again she would probably leave and my plain would be ruined! I kicked a rock in my frustration and went back home!
