The Mermaid and the Octopus

A myth submitted to the site by Celine Hajjar


Long long ago, in the Ociana Sea, there was a mermaid named Rose. She had two children. one was a girl, one was a boy. Her generous husband was called Ryan.
One afternoon, the mermaid went to find food. On her way, she saw a humungous octopus! It looked hungry. It felt like gobbling her up... 'I'm going to eat you!' said the octopus. The mermaid was petrified.
Suddenly, she remembered her grandfather's powerful sword. She decided to go to her husband to retrieve the sword. She swam like she was on fire. As soon as she reached, she rushed to her bedroom to claim what was hers.
When she reached the freaky octopus cave, it was sleeping! She was shocked. The octopus heard a sound and woke up. It thought that Rose was Queen of the octopuses! That was because her husband had sneaked into the cave and placed and a pair of glasses onto his big, fat head.
She invited him for tea and they were soon nibbling biscuits. 'I'm going to grab a drink. I'll be right back.'
What the octopus didn't know was that Rose was getting ready to kill him. Soon, the octopus was killed and Ociana was left in peace and harmony.

Your story ending was a bit muddled but good use of commas and ly words!
