Mermaids Of The Sea

A myth submitted to the site by Jasmine

Atlantic Ocean, United States

There once lived a beautiful mermaid who had a long thick beautiful blue tail. Everyone called her Aquamarine.

One day Aquamarine was swimming at the bottom of the ocean looking for clams and shells. She hear a big horn. To her it sounded if a boat of sailors yelling to each other about how big there catch was.

Instead of luring them to their deaths she tried to swim away when they laid down a net. She swam up to get a closer look. Two seamen were talking to each other about fish. One of the sailors walked away. The other sailor was about to take a drink of their beverage when he saw Aquamarine in the corner of his eye. He quickly turned. "HEY! Who are you...what are you doing in the middle of the ocean! Its dangerous! Do you need help!?" He asked willingly.
"No! I am part of the sea this is my home...Leave..go back to your land. Get your nets out of here!" She called with rage.
" Part of the sea?! You mean..."
"Yes! Im A Mermaid!"
"No way..are you crazy!"
Aquamarine flipped up her tail.He stared in awe! "Tom! Tom!" He called. "I gotta mermaid! WE ARE GOING TO BE RICH!"
"What no you cant take me!"
"Oh yes I can"
Aquamarine knew she was in trouble she had to lure them to their deaths..She had no choice...She sang a sweet melody so beautiful the seamen stopped in their tracks. She had them! "Now! Jump into the ocean swim with me!" The seamen jumped in the water and swam. They came close to Aquamarine. She sneakingly cut him and he bled. She knew that some shark or dangerous sea creature would track them. She was so sorry this HAD to happen. She started to cry. She had to swim away before the creature got her to . She swam away.
