The Tale of the Three Mermaids
By: Ariana Pearl, daughter of The Little Mermaid. Age 12.
One day I was at the town pool with my friends Caroline and Lilly. We saw two girls sitting at the deep end laughing and talking. There were younger girls crowded around them, talking to them and asking questions. When we looked closer, we saw that they had mermaid tails. One girl had a pink one, and the other had a green one. Now, at this time, I did not know that my mother, Ariel, was a mermaid because she thought that it would be dangerous for some nonsense reason. Anyways, Caroline, Lilly and I had started a mermaid fan club because we obviously were fans of mermaids.
We swam over to them and saw that they were a little older than us, maybe 13 or 14. “Hi!” I said to them. The girl with the green tail kinda glanced at me but then scowled. But I wasn’t going to give up there. “We have absolutely LOVE your tails.” I said. The green girl looked at the pink girl and shrugged. ‘Stuck-up’ I thought. ‘snobby stuck up spoiled girls.’ Lilly spoke up. “Can you tell us where you got them?” The pink girl glared at us. “No.” She said coldly. “Dad said to keep it a secret. Didn’t he Diana?” The girl with the green tail, whose name was Diana, nodded so fast that her dangly earrings jingled. “He did, Rebecca.” She said. “Let’s go guys.” Caroline said. We swam away and heard the girls laughing.
When I got home, I got onto my laptop and searched: Mermaid tails for girls on Google. A few adult mermaid websites came up but no kid sizes. Then I went to FinFun.com which was a dream come true. I absolutely LOVED the Aussie Green tail so much. I called Lilly and Caroline about my discovery and they came over right away to choose their tails. I told them the price and about the monofin. We didn’t have a big allowance, so our parents said to save up for them. We had a lemonade stand, sold jewelry, tutored younger kids, and did chores around the house. When finally we had made enough money for our own tails and monofins, we ordered them right away. I got Aussie Green, Lilly got Caribbean Sunset, and Caroline got Malibu Pink. When they arrived, we opened them together… “One, two, THREE!” and ripped the packages. We went straight to the pool and started our first swim. I was surprised that I could go so fast! Younger girls stared at us in awe and asked us questions like “Are you real mermaids?” It was fun getting attention.
The mermaid tails are fabulous quality at an amazing, reasonable price. I love Fin Fun mermaid tails, and I absolutely recommend this for girls who want to be mermaids.
