Where the Mermaid Came From-Part the Second

Part the Second~
When we last left off, our misunderstood girl had given up and locked herself away after being convinced that she was not of this world.

Still, she often dreamed of many things.

Like the woods where her friends the animals lived who gave her so much comfort and where her faerie friends whisphered in her ear, played and danced with her.



And the magical creek where she swam and listened the the singing waters...

She also missed her childhood friend who always seemed to understand her and who never failed to make her laugh.

As they grew up, her friend remained as he had always been. He was real and true and rare. But, he had his own life to live so soon he had to go on his own way and leave as well. She wished him all the best, but her heart filled with more sadness at his absence. She could not believe that anyone would ever truly understand her as he had.



And, because she was somewhat human, she often could not stop thinking about her lost husband. He had a new wife and a new life now. She wondered how that was possible. She often thought about how wonderful their wedding had been and how full of joy she had been at the thought of starting a life with him. Those were truly sweet days. But, now they were over. What was next for her? Could there be some kind of life waiting after all of this?

Next Part the Third...
