this is a mermaid who's tale is unlike any other. She was once powerful, she had wealth, fame, her dad was a great sea king, but there was one thing she lacked. A friend. more than anything else she wanted a friend, someone to play with and to share secrets with. one day, as she was sunning herself on a rock, she saw a girl playing in the water. ' i want her to be my friend,' the mermaid thought, so she approached the young girl. " will you be my friend?" the mermaid asked. the girl stared at her. "no," she answered. "mermaid aren't real. i must be dreaming. either that or you are a person i disguise." the girl's eyes widened and she fled. from that day on, she hated all humans. mermaids are immortal, and what passes as a thousand years, seems only a minute to them. the end of the earth came in the form of a black hole, threatening to swallow earth. the mermaid's father was bent on saving the humans. in fact, all the merpeople were bent on saving the humans. to stop them, the mermaid poisoned the water that they lived in, and crept to the edge of the earth. there she stared on into fate, and waited to welcome death.
