Amelia was awake before the Sun came up. She wanted to get a head start of the clean up while she waited for the rest of the crew to arrive. She grabbed a quick bite to eat and headed out the door.
Amelia spotted trash right away as she swam up to the beach. She headed over with a trash bag and started cleaning up. She couldn’t believe people would leave trash around such a beautiful place. Some people have no common sense she thought to herself as she put the rest of the trash in the bag. She had half the beach cleaned up by the time the rest of the crew arrived.
Amelia was just about to head into the water when Makoa stopped her.
“Hey I know we work together but we haven’t been formally introduced. I’m Makoa and you are the girl my brother can’t stop raving about.”
“Hey, I’m Amelia and yes I’m that girl. Finn has told me all about you and your family. It’s nice to finally meet you instead of just hi in passing in the office.”
” Look I know you and my brother just started going out but I was wondering if you would come over for Dinner tomorrow night to meet the family. That way everyone has a chance to get to know you.”
Amelia paused to think about it. Meeting the family was a big deal. True she had been seeing Finn for a few months but they haven’t been official until last night. Brushing her doubts about it She finally said”Yes, I’d love too.”
“Great I’ll let you get back to work. See you tomorrow” Makoa said as he headed off to collect water samples from the waterfall.
One of the perks of being a mermaid is you don’t need to a boat to collect trash from the ocean. By the time all the trash had been cleaned up the sun had already gone down. Amelia caught a ride back on the Directors boat too tired to sleep. She fell on to the bed clothes and all and drifted off to sleep.
