Amelia looked at her new home with a sense of pride. It wasn’t much but it was at least a start. Just think a few months ago she was sleeping in a tent. Nalani was pestering her to introduce her to Finn. She had seen him around the island but hadn’t actually met him. Right now they were casually dating nothing serious. Amelia knew that she had to tell him she was a mermaid before anything became serious.
Inside the house there wasn’t much but Amelia didn’t care it was a home. One she would live in for the rest of her days. She was lost in thought when her phone dinged with message from Finn asking if she wanted to go on a date. She smiled and responded quickly. Today would be the day she tells him. If he sticks around she would be over the moon. Though she shuddered at the thought of how he might reject her. Just like the last person she told. Mark the asshole that he was looked at her with such disgust and threw her out of his house. She thought he was the one. The one she would settle down with but he couldn’t accept her. She shook her head to get rid of the painful memory and headed to Windenburg to meet Finn.
Amelia and Fin laid on the ground and watched the clouds go by. Amelia was lost in thought thinking of how best to tell Finn she was a mermaid. “Penny for your thoughts.” Finn whispered bring Amelia out of her thoughts.
Amelia took a deep breath and said “I have something to tell you. I’m a mermaid.”
Finn jumped up so quickly it made Amelia jump. Finn’s face said it all he was in utter shock and disbelief “You’re a mermaid. I thought that stuff was all make believe.”
“No its true that is why my teeth look the way they do. Look I wanted to tell you because I think this is going to get serious and if it does I want someone who accepts me for who I am.” Amelia stared at the ground as she spoke.
” I need some time to think.” is all Finn said before walking away. Amelia swam home crying the whole way. She curled up in bed and cried herself to sleep.
