The Mermaid Project

Hi my name is Kai.
I am 16 years old.
I was selected for the mermaid project.
It sounded exciting at first, but now...I don't know who I am.

13. I think I'm Falling for you

"Wake up sleapy head!" Eve was shaking me.
"What?" I said in a very hoars voice. 
"It's your first day with your lungs! How do you feel?" She was smiling.
"Great, but why are you here?" I asked with only one eye open.
"Oh here's your schedule! I was asked to deliver it to you! We all have pretty much the same schedule, but it's always nice to have one to remember!" She said while throwing it onto my face. It rasted on my face which forced me to sit up. I pulled it off my face and set it down on the counter beside me. 
"Now get up we have breakfast in 10 minutes."

I got out of bed and whent into my closet. I picked out a green top and and some grey sweatpants and then made my way downstairs. I decided to let my blonde curls loose considering I hadn't woken up with bedhead this morning. We walked to the eating area when I saw Jake. He smiled at me and I smiled back. I wanted to sit with him, but something told me it wasn't a good idea. Especially with Jessie sitting in a corner.

I sat with Eve at our own table we ate and then I went back to my room to change. Eve kept giving me updates as to how much time we had left before training. She kept telling me how fun it is to swim with your new lungs and how everything is easyer. Once I was done with changing I brushed my teeth and we headed downstairs.

Once we got there we all stood in a line according to numerical order like we had the day before. Jake stood next to me because he was number six. He winked at me and it caused me to blush. I then turned with a strait face to look at Jessie. He gave us our orders.
"1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, you will have speed training today. 6 you will swim laps until the training session is over." He said glaring at Jake. Why was he so mean to Jake? I didn't get it and I didn' like it either.
"7, you will work with me on breathing." He said and smiled at me. Oh no...I had to fill my lungs with water again. I couldn't do that again. I almost died the first time! But what could I do.

Jessie lead me to the other pool. The one we had worked in yesterday. He had me first put my head in the water and breathe in water, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I tried time after time after time, but I could stop holding my breath. 
"Come on Kai, I know you can do it." He said.
"I can't! I almost died last time!" I argued. I looked at him with pleading eyes. He looked at me then started to take off his shirt.
"What are you doing?" I asked. He didn't answer and started to take off his pants revealing his bathing suit. He jumped in next to me and put his hands back on my chest and stayed behing me.
"Sing" he whispered into my ear. I decided to continue singing the song I had sang the day before. 
"I am trying not to tell you
But I want to
I'm scared of what you'll say
So I'm hiding what I'm feeling
But I'm tired of holding this inside my head" Jessie heald me to make sure I was breathing right and he slowly started pushing me under water as I sang. I realised that once I was completely submerged, I had no idea. I could breathe normally.
