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.

22. Jake and I

     "I don't know why I said it" Jake said cutting me off. It sounded urgent, but not cruel. He wasn't snapping at me, but somehow it stung. Its the kind of pain that comes with relief.

"I mean, maybe I ment it," he said that even faster. His face was turning red. I'd seen him on TV, he is an Olympic track swimmer just like I am. He's the kind of guy you see on TV and dream about, but the person standing in front of me right now was not that guy. It was as if he was peeling away layers of himself and showing me who he was beneath the muscles and the lights.  "I mean, i don't know. Girls...I've had girls, lots of them. But its not like this. Its forced and it's not real. But I met you and it was genuine. Like I actually cared about what you thought of me. And you're beautiful. You're so beautiful when you swim. And we were working so closely. So I said that. You were panicking and scared and I said it. I didn't decided to say it, I just did,"   He looked up at me. Worry draped his eyes and I took a step forward. I wasn't in control of my actions. I didn't understand why I was doing what I was doing, but I knew it's all I wanted. I saw my hand reach out and touch his face.    "Kai, i don't know what love is, but I feel something for you and I can't explain it-- "Shut up" i said. He looked at me for a brief moment and then there I was, our lips pressed together. His lips moved with mine. The movements became faster and thicker. He laid me down on the bed and it was his body against mine. I was on a high and i couldn't explain it. It was a rush that I'd never felt before.   "I want to be with you Jake" I said pulling away lightly. The words just flowed out of me. "Then there's nothing stopping us" he said, a smile growing on his face, "But my sister is going to kill me" he said, producing laughs from both of us.   And then there we were kissing again.
