The Mermaid Discovery

A myth submitted to the site by Shannon

Morcambe, England

Long, long ago there was a little girl named Shannon who lived in England. She had mousy brown hair, blue eyes and she was 9 years old. One day she went out to the beach on her own for a swim. The sky was light blue and it was a realy , hot summer day. She got into her swim suit and dived in the salty water. What a cool sea. She thought.

Suddeny she felt some thing grab her arms. ''Let go! Please!'' she screamed but what ever it was it would not let go. She turn'd to face a shark. ''AAAAAAAHHHH!'' she screamed. She freed herself and swam like the wind then dived under water. She forgot to hold her breath but when she breathed she was fine! ''I can breath under water !'' she cried. But that moment the shark came she quickly hid in a under water cave. She did not care if it was dark, dirty or frightening all she cared about was that she was safe from the shark.

The next day she was still in the cave and she was surrounded by fish. She looked down to itch her leg when she saw she had a fish tale! It was light blue with pink at the tips. ''Im going to call my self a... mermaid and this can be my mermaid tale!'' and then she went exploring saw the shark about to eat some fish eggs. She put her arm out to say stop but then fire came out her arm and killed the shark. ''I have powers as well!''

She quickly got the fish eggs in her arms and raised them at 9 years and the hatched into mermaids.

And that it how mermaid's were discovered!
