As she was sitting there on her underwater rock, she hears this loud noise and notices the sea floor shaking. As her family was gathering food she goes in search of them to tell them her weird encounter.The poor mermaid couldn't find her family and the shaking became worse. She then realized it was an underwater volcano erupting.
After a decade of searching for her family, she ends up close to land wondering what this weird place is that has weird creatures with split tails. She then washes up into a pool of water hidden behind a huge rock. She tries to hide as two females with the so called "split tails" walks up and spots her. The young mermaid tries to get away but notices she is trapped in the sand. The two girls spotted her and walked over to see what it was.
They then saw her tail and realized that the stories they have heard were true about mermaids. She was real. They asked her what she was doing so far away from her home. So then the mermaid told the two girls her story of what happened. The girls told her that they could help her get out of the sand she was stuck in. They told her she should probably go back home her family may be there waiting for the young mermaid to return.
The mermaid finally arrived home and found that the family was there waiting for her return. She silently thanked the two girls. Then told her family of her long adventure.
