A Mermaid Story

DSCN5584[1]

A little girl sat on the sand of the ocean. It wasn’t too cold, or too hot, a perfect day. She should have been delighted, but she was scared of mermaids.

So it didn’t help much when a mermaid popped out of the water.

The little girl shrieked and backed up. The mermaid tried to comfort the little girl but it was no use. DSCN5587[1]

Finally the mermaid jumped up and pulled the little girl into the sea.

She struggled a little bit, but soon she settled down in the shining sea.

“Oh there you are. I’m Mermaid Mary. I am sorry that I had to do that, but if I didn’t, you never would have come.

“Let’s go down to my home.” Mary grabbed the little girl’s hand and down they went.

Down in Mary’s home it was empty, but a light reflected on the water. They talked, and shared many secrets. A few hours later they had to leave.

The little girl sat on the shore again, this time not afraid.
