The Little Mermaid
Luke took me to the market and he bought me a lot of cheap new clothes with his money.
How sweet is he?
I don't know a lot of people who are friendly and open minded.
My father used to tell me that people were selfish because they want to catch the mermaids.
I prove you wrong, Dad, that lots of people are nice...
Luke doesn't mind that he can carry a lot of my shopping bags, but I take a half of them and he can have another half of them too.
"You, for sure, are so kind. Thank you!" Luke thanks me.
I smile cheerfully.
"Kindness is free. I love to helping the people... Back in my home!" I explain.
I sigh sadly.
I look down on the ground.
Maybe I was overwhelmed that I want to go back to my parents.
They want me to marry someone that I don't know...
Then Luke interrupted my thought.
"What's wrong?" Luke asks worriedly.
I totally forgetting that Luke was there beside me!
I look up at his worried face with my sweet smile and I look into his soft blue eyes.
I have to say it's nothing or else...
"It's nothing!" I say.
He looks away to see on the ground with his wired face and nod at once.
We sit on the sand and watch the sunset start down.
You know what?
I never seen this sunset so beautiful before.
I live in underwater, remember...
"Luke!" That was another boy's voice.
With that name, he starts to coo him and jump on his back.
I stand up.
I wonder who's it?
He has red hair with pale skin and I can't see his eyes...
I can see that Luke didn't like that.
"Get off of me!" Luke orders angrily.
I giggle quietly.
How cute is he?
I never see people get angry back in my home.
All the mermaids, back in my home, only feel happy.
I giggle again.
The boy, I think he's Luke's friend, looks up at me with a confused face.
Oh, he looks so handsome with these blue-green eyes and cute eye piercing.
"Who is that? Your girlfriend?" He asks joking.
When he says 'girlfriend', I got confused and I open my mouth.
What is a girlfriend?
I never heard it before.
But I only heard 'married'.
Luke punches the boy's arm playfully.
What was that?!
I was confused.
"No! She's just come here today. She doesn't know anything from Australia. She's from England." Luke explains to the boy.
The boy stares at me and I give him an unconformable smile when I look into his eyes.
"Hi... I'm Micheal. Best mate of Luke." The boy offers his hand to me.
I think he wants to shake my hand.
Yep, I'm smart.
I pull my hand in the air and I put my hand onto his hand while I chuckle nervously.
"I'm Oceana, but everyone calls me Ocean." I introduce myself to him.
Micheal still stares at me, but I look away from him when I give him a shy smile.
Luke looks at him and me at the same time.
I remember what my father told me before I left.
Falling in love is making me become a bubble just like my big sisters...
He also told me that finding true love is a good thing.
My father told me a story about that.
I sigh sadly.
Mermaid and human cannot be together.
"Um..." I say shyly.
There has silence moment between all of us.
"Since you search the apartment..." Luke pauses as he looks up and down at me.
"Why not if you come in my house?" He continues.
I nod with my blank face.
Have I found a true love?
I'm so sorry for the late update and I'm also sorry for making you waiting for it...
I have to tell you something that is not important but...
There have two teams who are: #TeamLuke or #TeamMicheal. You decide!
