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.

When I woke up Jessies lips were to mine. I was startled and I took a deep breath and tried to sit up, but an assistent softly heald me down. 
"It's ok! She's ok!" Jessie shouted to the other assistants. They all formed a circle around me. I noticed my breathing was easyer. Like a big void space with a lot more room for air. I still strugled to speak. I finally managed to whisper "what happened?" In a hoars voice.
Jessie looked at me as if to say "I'll explain later". 

They got me some water and eventually all the assistants had left. I was ok and there was no more need for treatment. I was left alone with Jessie.
"What happened?" I asked him. He came over and sat next to me on the hospital bed.
"Your resperitory systems almost failed and your heart almost stopped." He said a softly as he could. I let out a little gasp. I was shocked. Had I almost died? He moved his hand ontop of mine to confort me. 
"But you're ok now. Your surgery was a succes and you are free to swim freely for the rest ofthe day." He said. I felt overwealmed with thanks for him saving me. I didn't know what to do so I hugged him.
"Thank you." I whispered into his chest. He laughed a little.
"You're welcome." He said carresing my head.

After a while I eventually made my way back to my room and changed. I grabbed a wet suit and made my way to my training pool. When I got there, there was already someone there. I swam a fiew laps before he finished up his set and then I went over to greet him.
"I thought I was the only one." I said. He looked over to me. He had messy brown hair and green eyes. I recognized his face from somewhere, but I could remember where.
"Oh hi." He said. He swam over to me.
"You're Kai right?" He asked.
"Yea, and you are..." I asked.
"I'm Jake." He said. Where had I seen him before? I kept searching thoughts, memories and I couldn't find anything. 
"I placed third at nationals this year..." He said trying to hint. He could tell that I had seen him before. He had obviously seen me before. Then it hit me.
"Oh right you're Jacy's brother!" I smiled. He was pretty cute. I noticed that he had a six pack and huge arm muscles. He was to die for. 
"Well guess what." I asked. I smiled deviously. He smiled back.
"What?" I could tell he really wanted to know what I was thinking. 
"I was first at nationals." I teased.
"What are you saying?" He said and smiled at me. I could tell he had caught on.
"So if I was first and you were third. That means that I swim faster than you.
"I don't think so." He argued.
"There's only one way to find out." I said. At that moment we both climbed out of the swimming pool at the same time. 
"Oh and one rule." I said. He looked at me from his crouched starting position.
"No using your magic breathy under water power thingy!" I said. He looked at me with a  pouty face. But I shook my head. 
"Fine!" He said. I counted down.
"3, 2, 1!" We took off. As we swam he was getting ahead, so I decided that no one said I couldn't use my breathy under water powers, so I let my lungs fill with water. It wasn't working. I was taking large gulps of water and it was stinging my neck. My nose started stinging and I started to sink. I don't know how deep the pool was, but it was at least 20 feet. I was just sinking and sinking into darkness. I saw as the light from above became smaller and smaller. I was drowning and there was nothing I could do. The last thing I remember was Jake swimming towards me.
