Roderich was furious.He had been embarrassed by his youngest daughters absent in front of the aristocrats of the sea...again! She was supposed to be in the concert singing with the rest of her sisters,but she was gone most likely on one her foolish explorations. "She is in so much trouble when she gets h-", before he could finish his sentence he turned around to see his youngest daughter quickly swimming towards him."(Name!" "Father! I'm so so sorry!" "I know you are!DO you want to know why" (Name) put her tail straight down and put her hands behind here,"I have a feeling your going to tell me anyways" she mumbled "Because,that is what you say every time!You're always on your foolish explorations!" "They're not foolish!" "If not foolish they're dangerous!Something could happen to you,like a shark finds!" You looked extra guilty because that had actually just happened "Or worse,a human could find you! If you are going to explore,explore somewhere safe!" You looked down "Yes,father..." Your sorry expression made him frown and hold "I'm sorry for yelling. I just...I just don't want anything to happen to you. I love you (Name)" "I love you too,father" you hugged him back."Now go i your room with your sisters" "Yes father" you swam as he watched you with a worried expression. He fell into his throne chair and sighed "What am I going to do with her?"
You swam into your bedroom that you shared with your sisters "Look who showed up!" Natasha snapped, "Don't be so mean Natasha!" Katyushka yelled to her "We were worried though! Where were you?" "Where do you think? Probably exploring! So how was it? Did you find anything interesting?" Lily said. "Yeah I did!" you pulled out the medal things you found and the map. "See this," you pulled the rod that made you see far away, "Look through the small end and you can see super far out the big end!" They all took turns looking through it and gasping "Oh my gosh! That is so cool!" "I know! And look at this," you pulled out the other medal mouth with the wooden stick,"If you put this on paper or anything it will make a mark and it can help you make circles and stuff!" They looked amazed as you showed them. You took out the map of Prussia,"And this is the map of the country on the beach" you pointed to the ocean,"And see that's where we are!" They were all amazed by your findings. "These are so cool (Name)!" Lily squealed. You spent the rest of the day talking and playing with the trinkets you found.
I woke up in the middle of the night,because the ocean sky had a shadow that made it some how even darker. I made sure all my sisters were still asleep before swimming out the window. I quickly swam the shadow,and eventually reached the surface and burst through. It was a giant ship, I looked at in awe of the size, I saw that it had type of seal that looked like the one from the ship earlier.
I wanted to see more of it and started to swim along side the ship, I found a ladder that reached a window type space onto the deck of the ship. I slowly crawled up it and looked through the space. There was a lot of male humans aboard the ship, they were all laughing and dancing. There was a man with white hair,but he looked the same age as me and he had blood red eyes. I realized that he was the boy that i saw the day my mother died, after dozen years I finally found him again, I was so happy to finally find,but again I couldn't talk to him. I was too scared that if they found what I was they would capture me and make me into food like my mother told me. So I decided to look from afar. He was so handsome, all I could was stare at him,their was a uptight looking man with sandy blonde hair,large eyebrows and green eyes,when he walked onto the deck the whole crew went quiet. "Thank you everyone! Today is our great Prince Gilbert's 19th birthday!," everyone clapped and hollered and the man most likely Gilbert smiled. "And for his birthday,we've had a gifted artist make his present!" There was a giant object covered by a white cloth and as soon as he said that the cloth was torn away and there was a detailed statue of Gilbert was revealed. Gilbert looked in shock as the crew cheered and the other man looked proud of himself,Gilbert stood up and walked towards the statue. "Arthur this is...AWESOME!" 'Wow,he's even handsome as a statue' I thought to myself, I sighed and rested my head on my hand,'If only he wasn't human...or I wasn't a mermaid'
As I was thinking Gilbert had looked towards my direction while Arthur was being forced to drink with the crew, he looked shocked and I bet so did when I saw him running towards me. I let go of the railing and jumped back into the ocean. I stayed swimming just under the water, I saw him looking over the ship. He stood there unknowingly looking right at me for a while,but he had a disappointed look on his face and walked back to the crew.
I stayed following the ship since they were trying to get back to the beach and they were still far out at sea. I started to hear thunder and I saw lightening,then it started to rain extremely hard. I could hear and see the crew screaming and trying to keep the ship afloat, unsuccessfully. The boat started to tilt side to side,then it was struck by lightening and caught fire. Giant firing pieces of the ship started to break and fall into the ocean, each time almost hitting me. When crew member started to jump off the ship and into the ocean, I hid behind big enough pieces of the ship. I was about to turn around and swim back home until I saw Gilbert fall unconscious into the water. I quickly grabbed him and put him onto a large piece of wood and started swimming to the shore.
By the time I got Gilbert to shore it was early morning. I got him laid down just out of the tides reach on the beach, for a while all I could do was look at him, "He's so beautiful" I whispered. I moved a strand of his white hair out of his face behind his ear. I so badly wanted to just kiss him,just once. I slowly started to close my eyes and lean down to,but before I could, I heard Arthur calling his name and Gilbert woke up. His eyes grew giant, I gasped and jumped into the ocean. I swam far enough so that I laid down on large rock popping out of the ocean far enough so that they couldn't see me ,but close enough that I could hear them. "Master Gilbert! Thank goodness you're alive! We were so worried!" Gilbert was looking out to the ocean,maybe looking for me. "Yes I'm fine" "What are you looking at sir?" Gilbert blinked a few times,looked at Arthur,"N-Nothing,lets get home" and they both walked off.
I jumped into the ocean and started to swim home, thankfully it was early that the sun was barely out itself so that meant that neither father nor my sisters would be awake yet and hopefully not when I got either."Father would kill me if he ever found out"
