@ Anyone 

Ariel was out exploring again this morning. Flounder tagged along, frightened, as usual. In his defense, this was a part of the sea neither one of them had ever explored before. It was dark and eerie, but that didn’t bother Ariel, because off in the distance she had spotted something. It was shining. She swam forward with Flounder attached to her fin.

It wasn’t long before she came upon a sunken ship. But this wasn’t like other ships she had found before. The sails were dark. They had skulls and crossbones on them. “What is this place?” she said thinking aloud. The mermaid continued to swim forward, past swords, skeletons, and other little trinkets. She would examine that stuff later. The mysterious shining was coming from a crack in a gigantic chest. “Flounder, look!” she exclaimed. “What do you think it is?” She asked him curiously. Ariel slowly opened the chest. She couldn’t believe her eyes! It was an entire chest full of gold shiny circles with emblems printed on them. “Wow! Scuttle will be so impressed!” Ariel commented as she inspected one of the coins.

“Come on Flounder, let’s go!” She said as she swam up towards the surface with a gold coin in her hand. Upon reaching the surface, Ariel looked around, but Scuttle was nowhere to be found. She could, however, see a silhouette of a human on the shore. Who could that be? Wondered Ariel. She began swimming towards the shore with Flounder following behind her.

Introductions | Meg & Ariel

“It sounds fun.” Meg smiled. It did. She’d always liked the water, especially trying to dance in it when she was a kid. It reminded her of that, she supposed, although it was probably different with a tail. “What’s it like to live under the sea?”

Ariel floated in silence for several moments. She had never really thought that humans would be so curious about sea life. It was normal to her. It was all she knew. “It’s pretty cool, I suppose….” Her response came out as if she weren’t entirely convinced of her own words. But the truth was, she did enjoy Atlantica most of the time. “… Nothing like it must be living on land though.” She continued.

After debating with herself for a while; she decided to elaborate. “My dad rules over a kingdom called Atlantica. That’s where I live.” Ariel flashed a grin as she proceeded. “And there’s so much to explore! Sunken ships! Caves! Canyons!” The endless adventures were probably her favorite thing about living underwater. She could swim anywhere her tail would carry her and it was awesome!

Meg cracked a grin. “Sometimes.d If I use them too much, or pull a muscle. Balancing is simple, unless, of course I’m too tired. Then, I get a little dizzy.” She laughed. The mermaid was the curious sort, and Meg liked her. 

“Dancing is … wonderful. It’s like floating, or swimming, once you get it right. I wasn’t always good. When you’re not… it feels like you’re in the wrong current, always getting knocked about. You don’t have dancing under the sea?”

Meg explained everything so well and Ariel really liked that about her. She listened intently, soaking up every bit of information Meg had to offer. “Well… we do…..dance… kind of. But not like hu-, I mean, you do on land. It’s more like… um, twirling? I guess.”

“That’s different.” Meg blinked a few times in surprise, taking in the sparkling green fin. “Wow. Is it … comfortable? Does it hurt?” She realized her questions could be considered dumb, but she knew nothing about mermaids or sirens or whatever Ariel was. “Explains a lot.” she said with a wry smile. “Must be nice, actually. Do you have legs as well or are you just a one-form sea creature?”

Ariel stared blankly at Meg, as she was clearly taking in Ariel’s secret. She figured it might come as a bit of a surprise to a human. The mermaid did her best not to laugh at Meg’s questions, but still wound up letting out a faint giggle. “Nope, doesn’t hurt at all.” Since the human girl had asked questions about her fin, Ariel thought it the perfect opportunity to inquire about her legs. “Do your legs hurt? Is it hard to balance on them?”

Ariel’s grin quickly transformed into a frown. “Me? Legs?…. I wish….” She was silent for a few minutes before striking up the courage to ask Meg another question. “What’s it like to dance?”

“Yeah?” Meg asked, hugging her cloak around her body. The kid seemed nice- definitely not from around here, but nice enough. She had a friendly smile and a nice way about her. Meg gave her a grin. “Do you sing anything specific or just what comes to mind?”

She slipped her foot out of her shoe. A rock had gotten wedged in there, and it was bothering her immensely. She shook the shoe, hoping the rock would fall out, but she ended up having to dig into it with her hand. Finally, she slipped her foot back into her warm boot, just as the cold air began to nibble her toes. “I truly don’t know how you can  stand the water in weather like this, Ariel.”

Ariel shrugged. “Just whatever usually.” She swam in a little closer to the river’s edge. As Meg slipped her shoe off, Ariel couldn’t help but to observe the girl’s feet. She was fascinated by human legs and she just couldn’t help it. She’d never seen a human’s feet this close before. “Well, I… uh.. I spend a lot of time in the water…” Ariel thought again about revealing her fin and decided that if there ever was a proper time to do so, it was now. She could tell Meg was beginning to think something was up. “… you see.” Ariel gave a timid smile as she flipped her fin above the water’s surface.

Meg was surprised to see a face in the water looking back at her. The girl had guts- it was a cool night and she supposed the water must be freezing. “How are you not cold?” she asked, temporarily forgetting the fact that she had been singing. “Nice hair, by the way. Works for you.” She remembered the girl’s question, her eyes falling to the side as she brushed her bangs away. She had been singing a Christmas carol softly, one that reminded her of her love when he had been around. She chose to ignore the question, brushing it off with a short answer. “Just singing to myself.” Meg shrugged. “Ariel. Nice name. Megara. Call me Meg.”

Ariel winced. She hadn’t thought about how cold the water would feel to a human. “I-uh. Well… I guess you could say I’m pretty used to it.” She gave a guilty looking smile. She thought about popping her fin up above the surface, but the girl seemed to think she was human and Ariel liked that. Not to mention, it made her feel safe. Ariel glanced down at her hair gracefully floating atop of the water. “Thanks!”

"It’s nice to meet you, Meg." Ariel grinned. "I know it’s none of my business, but you seem kinda sad. If it helps… I sing a lot too… especially when I’m not feeling the best."
