A Mermaid Story from Mermaiden Crystal

I fought hard to keep my smile inward as I peeked around the pile of furs and cushions that I had barricaded myself behind. In a moment of overwhelming chaos, I had separated myself from all my noisy friends and found a hiding place in a small nook of our living quarters, which was usually empty during the day. I’d nearly fallen asleep, all wrapped in heavy furs and cuddled down into the cushions when I had heard people entering. Thankfully, I realized who it was before I spoke up. Obsidian and Waverlee were now deep into their flirtation. I settled in to listen with a silent grin on my face.

“No really, you can’t possibly believe that Wave! Why would Serena ever make up a fake boyfriend?”

“I don’t know! But all I can think of whenever she starts talking about him is that no merman is that amazing,” Waverlee’s laughing voice always rose in pitch when she flirted. It was so high now, I was worried it would disappear altogether!

“Hey,” Obsidian chuckled. “No merman?”

“Nope. Not one,” Waverlee teased.

“Really? Because I seem to remember you saying something yesterday about how I was pretty amazing as well…”

“Hmm…” I could almost picture Waverlee in my mind, tapping one of her long fingers against her lips, the way she’d taught me to do when I wanted a boy to notice them. I closed my hands over my mouth to stop from giggling at their ridiculous games.

“No, that doesn’t sound like me. Are you sure you’re not mistaking me for some other mermaid? After all, Crystal’s informed me that there have been quite a few that have caught your eye.”

Obsidian groaned like he’d been punched in the gut. “Ouch, low blow, Your Highness.”

Waverlee’s laugh was musical. I bit my lip to keep from joining in. I’m definitely going to remember this so I can tease him later, I thought. After a long moment of silence, I began to think they’d left. I slowly lifted myself a little so I could see.

Obsidian’s hands cupped Waverlee’s cheeks as he kissed her lightly. Her eyelashes fluttered and her arms dangled to her sides, as if she wasn’t entirely sure what to do. In a moment of surprise and immaturity, a noise escaped my mouth. “Ewww!” I squealed, while laughter bubbled up right behind the word.

I wasn’t sure who moved faster but suddenly they were on opposite ends of the room, Obsidian running his hands through his hair and looking smug and guilty at the same time, and Waverlee wrapping her arms around herself shyly and twisting her head away from me into her shoulder to hide her blushing grin. I took my time to compose myself and then silently rose. Folding my hands behind my back, I casually swam forward taking my time. Then, when I had reached the space right between them, I stopped and shook my head slightly, looking to each Waverlee and Obsidian in turn. “Tsk, tsk,” I said softly, my cheeks almost splitting from my effort not to burst out laughing. Then I continued on in a meandering pace right out of the room and down the hall.

As soon as I turned the corner, I doubled over giggling. It wasn’t that I hadn’t seen my brother with mermaids before, but I had never seen him kiss one! There had been something about seeing his face so serious and then so guilty that had struck me funny and even thinking about it now threw me into another round of laughter.

Luckily, I had just recovered when Waverlee rounded the corner. She started a little at the sight of me and I covered my mouth to keep from letting her see my lips curve into a smile. Her eyes were wide and she was blushing furiously. She began to stutter. “I…um…that wasn’t what you think it was…we were just…uh…” Then she sighed and her shoulders slumped. “I’m so sorry,” she whimpered softly. “I shouldn’t be making excuses. That’s your brother and I shouldn’t have kissed him without your permission. But Crystal,” suddenly her hands were wrapped around mine and her eyes were wide and very close. “I know you all think that I’m a flirt and a heart breaker, but I like Obsidian a lot and I would never hurt him. Besides,” she shrugged and backed away a little, smiling but looking somewhat embarrassed, “that was my first kiss.”

I blinked once slowly so that I would have time to get over my shock. Waverlee’s little laugh told me I hadn’t done a good job of it, however. “Please don’t tell anyone!” she begged with a pitiful smile. “I don’t mind the way people think of me. I’d rather let people criticize me for something I know isn’t true than hear them attack the things that I beat myself up over.”

I knew I looked like a guppy with my jaw opening and closing so finally I shook my head and smiled at my friend. “Of course I won’t tell anyone! And how could you think I would be angry with you, Waverlee? You may put on a show, but I’ve seen how good your heart is.” Waverlee lifted her chin at that and beamed at me. “Besides,” I continued, “I’ve never seen Obsidian act around any other mermaid the way he does around you. He’s a better person around you. I couldn’t think of anyone else I’d rather he be with.”

Waverlee for once didn’t seem to have anything to say so she hugged me tightly and we stayed like that until Obsidian crept up on us. “There are my two favorite girls!” he bellowed as he grabbed us both and lifted us in his huge embrace, his earlier embarrassment completely forgotten.

“Come on you two, let’s go find the others,” he smiled as he released us, keeping one of Waverlee’s hands wrapped inside his own. “I feel the sudden need to get Brynn good and riled up so she’ll yell at me in that lovely Scottish accent.”

    ARGH WHY DID CRYSTAL BE HAPPY THAT WAVERLEE AND OBSIDIAN KISSED? I am very overprotective of my sister and would be MAD if I was Crystal. Also, wha do humans call this thing? My human friend Sage told me it was called a Koputr or something like that.

      Mermaid Caroline says:

      Hi Marina, yes mermaids don’t exist but they only exist if you believe they exist. I have a FinFun mermaid tail myself, Crystals mermaid tail to be exact, and when I’m swimming in my mermaid tail I feel at peace, it’s my safe place, Like I’m am a mermaid myself. And it’s okay if you don’t believe in mermaids, but you can’t tell all the mermaid lovers and when your on a mermaid loving web that mermaids don’t exist!
