MERSTORY - updated daily | only on

As the mermaid tribe shove off the shore
and make clicks and whoops of goodbye,
I ask Aqua, "Sure you no want go family?
Long time gone, you know."

"Isso need Aqua."

... true.
As long as you don't pull something crazy like yesterday again.

"Happy?" she asks, leaning onto me.
"... happy." I respond, feeling my heart clench with unforeseen emotions.
I honestly never thought I'd feel this strongly about anything.
Hesitantly, I reach over to put an arm over her shoulder.
And we sit there, in companionable silence,
watching her tribe leave her behind.

I've been taken and thrown into a strange new world,
but she's choosing a strange new future.
