5. mermaid?!

I lie on my bed, imagining plenty of ways too kill him painfully. His head is WAY too big for his body.

I grab a ornament in my fist and grind it too powder. That's it, he will have to go. Tonight. I envision my plan in my mind. At midnight, I will sneak to his house and up into his room. Then I'll finish him off. I burst out into mad laughter as I picture gorgeous Kyle, Lying lifeless on his stupid bed. A tiny part of me is screeching at me not to do it. But its too late, Kyle's constant mockery of me drove me over the cliff. I bind the voice and cast it off. Far, far away. There is no room for doubt. And I lie in my bed, relishing the time for revenge.

* * *

I get up and decide too make this even better. I go into my closet and rummage through the various outfits and select one of the numerous I keep for special customers. I do my hair and apply some makeup. Then take it off, seeing as I want the fool to know me. I look into the mirror and then smile. I'm dressed in a short, strapless red dress. I'm wearing 4inch heels, have some jewelry on and my hair is cascading off my head in waves and curls, that are piled high on my head. I erupt into another round of insane laughter and launch myself into the darkness.

I inhale deeply, trying to find his sent. I capture it and follow the murky green trail. I arrive at a pale blue house. Leaping up, I grab a branch from a tree. Swinging, I let go and land on a window sill. I look through the glass and see his room. Perfect. Opening the window, I gaze at him, and then cant move. I see the rise and fall of his chest, witch is beautiful. He looks like a angel, lying there, with no mockery or hate on his features. Then I move onto his face. Its like seeing him for the first time. I catch my breath and look at his full lips his flawless face, his messy hair and his jaw. I sit back on my heels as the murderous part of me watches in dismay as my want for Kyle brings back the tiny part of me, witch grows larger and takes over.

* * *

Its morning when I wake from my staring at Kyle. It was Friday the fifteenth. Kyle started groaning and shifting. I launched myself out of the window and ran too my house, inside, I changed into some sweat pants, a shoulder-tee and put a blue bandana around my head. Then I dashed off to school. I groan as I see the Mercedes sitting in the parking lot. Then I feel someone fall on me from behind. I whip around and find Eloise sprawled on the pavement. I giggle and pull her up. “ thanks.” she says and straightens her knee-length pale gold dress. “Common! Gym is going to be great!” she drags me along heading for the building.

To my surprise, miss Hearst waited in front of the doors that let the students change. “We are doing swimming today class” she said, winking to my friend who giggled in joy. "What was that about?" I asked Eloise quizzically. "oh its a joke" she responded vaguely. When we got into the changing room, she tossed me a swim suit out of a big cabinet. Its blue with a green lighting bolt down the side. "are we swimming inside or outside?" I asked, giving her a meaningful glance. " we swim inside when it's raining." "that's good" and we leave the changing room in our swim suits tying up our hair.

* * *

As we enter the pool area, I notice a necklace dangling from her neck. “Whats that?” I ask. “what? This? Nothing.” she says covering it and turning her head away. ”I mean obviously something, but...” “oh okay.” I say and we turn our attention to Miss Hearst. “ Now today class we will be doing races, but for those who do not how to swim yet.” she glares pointedly at a group of peoples. They avoid her gaze and shift uncomfortably. “ will be practicing in the shallow end.” she finishes with a jerk towards a shallow group of water with a old dude standing there grinning toothless at us. “that is professor chuck, the pool keeper, he helps out when its swim time.” ten students hang there heads and go towards him. “ now you guys follow me to the starting point.” says the teacher. The rest of us, around fourteen people, trod off with her. We each mount our starting blocks and wait for the signal to go. “ On your mark, get set, GO!” and off we dove into the water.

* * *

I opened my eyes and swim up breaking the surface. I take a unnecessary breath and propel myself forwards. Students are falling back now and I'm leading with Kara in second and Stephanie in third. The distance is getting bigger between me and the rest. Suddenly a shape emerges from the water in front of me. I stop short. A human cant stay under water that long. Speeding forward I see Eloise's face grinning at me. “cant catch me vamp girl!” she shouts at me and then takes off. I swim faster then ever and we are racing side by side. “ I'm faster then you.” I say “ says who?” “says ME!” and I blast trough the water leaving her in my wake. “ OH ITS ON!” She shouts at me and I hear a splash. I turn my head around, still swimming and find that Eloise is gone. The water is smooth. Everyone is still far behind and Miss Hearst is winking at me. I turn around. Weird... Shaking my head, I break into breast stroke. The finish line is so close! I turn up the speed a notch or two and I look down cause I feel some vibrations from under the water.

* * *

I let out a surprised yelp as I see Eloise under me, doing the dolphin kick. She looks up and for my benefit she inhales water. Then she goes limp. My eyes widen in terror as I realize that my one and only friend is drowning. I dive down and whisper in a frantic voice” are you okay” she doesn't answer and I start to panic. I try to drag her up but she ways me down, witch is strange. When I let her go out of despair, I hear a voice. “your not going to let me drown that easily are you?” I look around and see her, already some distance in front of me, grinning and laughing. Now I'm mad. “HOW COULD YOU! I THOUGH YOU WERE DEAD!” I shout angrily, her grin becomes sheepish. I take deep breaths, forcing myself to be calm. “and how can you talk under water.” I ask. “you'll see, meet me in here at five o'clock” and she takes off.

* * *

aw crud. The race. But I don't see how she can just continue normally, how I can continue normally after that. Maybe that was her goal. I shoot out of the water and powered by anger, swim faster than ever. I use her tactic and go under water. Then I swim up and touch the wall that marks as done. She looks at me, realizing what I've done and she goes red in the face from humiliation. Everybody is laughing because I copied her and she didn't even realize. “congrats” says our teacher and she puts a makeshift gold medal around my neck, a silver one around Eloise's neck and a bronze one around Kara's neck. “hit the showers” says miss Hearst and we go and get changed.

the rest of the day passes fast enough. Elizabeth has been trying to talk to me, but I've been avoiding the routs she was near. Lunch passed uneventfully. Elizabeth tried to join us but JK held her back.. I skipped history and went home for the day. At five o'clock, I put on my shades and walked out the door of my house. I forced the lock on the door to the pool and slipped inside shutting the door. I flip the lights on and I jump as a voice whispers in my ear “ hello.” I spin around and see Eloise standing right in front of me. She steps back and says “ so, are you ready to find out the truth?” I nod and she walks in the water. Taking off her necklace, she closes her eyes. She falls onto her back in the water spread out like a star fish. I watch intently as she begins to glow. She grows longer and thinner. Her fingers become long and they look like fins. Her midnight blue shirt dries and floats loosely. Her legs snap together and become one. Its blue and scaly and has some fins at the bottom. Its a tail! Her hair is encrusted In pearls and shells. “a mermaid” I breath she opens her eyes and signals me to go under water. “ wow! That's so cool!” I say “ but how can you take on human form?” “ I can become human because our shaman gave me this necklace when my people banished me. I surprised you did not figure this out sooner. They did as soon as they saw me.” she finishes in a bitter tone. “how old are you Irene?” “me?” I say “ I'm 64, I died in 1940.” “that is pretty young and that explains why you had no idea of what I am.” she says “ hey, tomorrow do you want to see mermaid cove?” “ Ya!” I agree enthusiastically “ but I though you were banished.” “I am, but I still go and look around illegally.” “OK meet you Saturday at two.” she says and re transforms into a human. I say bye and leave.

I sigh as I think of today's weirdness. What was my world coming too. Who else in the school is mythical? I fidget as I read some new books I bought at a book store on my way back too my house. I throw it on the ground. I get up and walk over to my TV. I turn on the channel to a soccer game. I never understood that sport. I turn the TV off. It does nothing to make me calm. MY BEST FRIEND IS A FLIPPING MERMAIDE!!!! I guess that's better than a human... human... Kyle! I guess I could go visit again! I laugh, I'm turning into a stoker. I get up and go out locking the door behind me. I dash away

into the night
