One day a man named Jamie was coming home from work when he happened to come across some seals taking their skin off on the sea shore. One landed in Jamie’s shadow ,it belonged to the most beautiful one. One of the lady’s saw him and screamed so all the lady’s ran to find their skins Jamie put the skin in the middle of two rocks.
He loved the lady so much he took her home he was surprised when she said “I’ve never seen fire before”. The man asked her if she would like to stay and he promised to show her many wonderful things.
Soon they fell in love and had children and that was when she said “my father is the king of the sea, you see”. Then one day she found her skin and stepped into it. Jamie ran and ran and didn’t stop till he got to her and told her not to go with tears rolling down their faces, she turned to him and said “it’s time for me to go home”
“No no don’t go” he said
“I have to” she replied, and with that she dived deep down into the sea and he didn’t see her again. He didn’t even know her name.
