Mystery of the water

Water is my home, my sanctuary, my life. I am a mermaid.

I live on land, but spend most of my time in the water. One day while out swimming a boat comes near and I meet 5 boys, but they can't know who I am.

In this story, Niall falls for a mermaid, is it real love, or is it just a trance he has been put in? Only time will tell.


8. Pretty little liars

Maree's POV:

I helped Merlia get back to shore, the hook had gone really deep, so deep, it ripped part of her tail off, it won't heal back either.

We just reached shore when there came a knock at the door, who could that be?

"I'm just gonna go answer the door, you gonna be alright?" I asked.

"Yup" she replied.

I went over to the door and answered it, making sure that Merlia wasn't visible. It was the 5 boys from the boat, the ones who had tried to fish us out.

"Hello love, we were told that Merlia would be here" said the curly haired one.

"Err, yeah she's hear, but she's Emm... A little busy at the moment" I stuttered.

"Oh, well what's your name then?" The blonde one asked, I think he was Scottish or something.

"Maree, but Merlia calls me Ree for short" I said.

The whole time I had been talking, he had been staring at me, the one who lured me to the boat, I think his name was Lewis... No, Louis.

"And you guys are?" I added.

"Oh I'm niall, that's Harry, Zayn, Liam, and the one that's been staring at you his whole time is Louis." He said.

They all laughed, apart from Louis who hit him in the arm and blushed a little. Me doing the exact same thing, I must look like an idiot.

"Merlia" said Niall. Turns out he's Irish.

I turned around, and limping into the room was Merlia, her legs had reformed and her foot looked terrible.

"Hey guys" she welcomed.

"What happened to your foot?" Liam asked.

"Oh, just cut it while swimming, nothin major though" she said.

I didn't like the look of Liam's face, he had a mysterious look, like he suspected something.

"So... I can see you've met Ree" she said, breaking the silence.

"Yeah, Louis seems to like her a bit more though" laughed Harry.

Everyone laughed, and me and Louis began to blush again.

Liam's POV:

I don't know what it was but something seemed off about Merlia and Ree, and when Merlia came out with that big cut, it reminded me of the fish scales we found. I don't know why, it just did.

Merlia's POV:

"So was there a specific reason you went through the trouble of finding me?" I asked.

"Yeah, we found this thing earlier, and was wondering if you could take a look at it?" Asked Zayn.

"Yeah, sure, have you got it with you?" I replied.

Zayn handed me the object, it was part of my tail, oh no!

"Where did you find this?" I asked calmly.

"We were fishing and we caught something but then the wire got cut and that was attatched to the hook." Niall said smiling.

Niall always seemed to be smiling at me, I mean he is cute, but we come from two totally different worlds, it's impossible.

"I don't know, it looks like some fish tail, Ree, what do you think?" I asked.

She walked over to get a closer look, she knew what it was and agreed that it was just a fish tail.

"Alright then, by the way, are you girls busy?" Asked Louis.

"No" we said in unison.

"Well, would you both like to join us for a little fun on land?" Asked Harry.

"Sure" we agreed.

Liam still looked curious, what If he suspects something?

Niall's POV:

Yes, they were gonna come out with us, tonight, I'm gonna make a move on Merlia, I hope.

Merlia and Ree went off to change and me and the guys waited outside, admiring the view. There was this awesome little pier off the back of the house, jealous.

The door opened and the girls came out, Ree was wearing this floral dress with ballet flats and a cardigan, and Merlia was wearing shorts with a pink polo shirt and pink converse, she looked so cute.

"Ready?" I asked.

"Yup" Merlia replied.

Louis grabbed hold of Ree's hand and went off with her, the boys ran off somewhere too, and I was left with Merlia, just her and me.

"So... How have you been" I asked.

"Good, and yourself?" She replied.

"Alright, thought of you the past few days" I said. Why did I say that, it makes me sound wierd.

"Yeah? I though of you too" she smiled, glancing up at me.

"Cool" I replied.

Ok, I'm taking a risk her but its worth it. I took hold of her hand and starting making circles with my thumb, she mustn't have minded, because she held on tighter.

No one was around, it was just me and her, on the beach right next to the water. Our eyes met and we leaned in, our lips were so close, until... A wave came and made a bigger splash on the sand, Merlia jumped into my arms, she looked terrified.

"Are you ok?" I asked looking down at her.

"Y-Yeah, I'm fine, just don't wanna get salt water in my cut" she stuttered.

The sun was setting now, and the light made her eyes sparkle, I leaned in and placed my lips on hers, she kissed back, her warm soft lips touching mine made me ecstatic, a shiver ran down my spine at he touch.

Liam's POV:

I could see Merlia and Niall from where I was standing, they were about to kiss hen a wave came and Merlia jumped into Niall's arms.

What is up with this girl?

She may be pretty, but is she just a pretty little liar?
