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.


8. Eve

When we got there I was lead through a long hallway to a giant room. My room. It was huge. It had a giant sleeping area with couches and a king sized bed. I had two night stands and three windows. The blue curtains blew in the wind like a scene from a movie. It was perfect! I made my way to the bathroom. It had a bath tub and a separate shower. The shower was really big and these were little holes in the roof of the shower,  but no fausette. I turned on the water and it came raining from the roof of the shower. I quickly turned it off before I got wet and walked back to the sleeping area. So this was my home for the next year. I smiled at the thought. I felt so independant. I was about to crash on the bed when there was a knock on the door. I went to open the door. 
There stood a girl with short red hair smiled at me. She heald a basket of fruit.
"Hey, I'm Eve!" She smiledat me. I signaled her to come in.
"I brought this for you from the garden! You know this Island has some pretty interesting vegetation!" She said handing it to me. The assortment had very colorful fruits, many that I hadn't seen before. I set it on the counter as she came in and sat down.
"We have all be expecting your arrival. I wanted to give you a warm welcome!" She smiled. I sat down infront of her. 
"I'm Kai." I smiled. She started observing me.
"Wait a're Kai Blue!" She screamed.
"Yeah." I smiled. I was happy that she recognized me. It made me feel important.
"Wow! You know this place is filled with important people! You know James Balek is here!" She smled.
"Who?" I asked.
"James Balek a very famous diver! He rescued a fellow diver after his oxygen tank broke and heald his breath the whole way!" She was very enthusiastic.
"Oh cool!" I laughed. Eve sounded really cool. She was always laughing and enthusiastic. I needed more people like that in my life.

We talked for about twenty minutes. She told me about about almost all the subjects until finaly I asked
"And you? What did you do that got you here?" I asked with a smile.
"Well, I didn't really do anything, but my mom swam the English Channel so I enherited some sort of gene." She said. It must have been hard being the only one who didn't really do anything. But she was special and I could tell. After the question there was an akward silence. 
"So, how long have you been here?" I asked trying to break the silence.
"Oh only two weeks. The project is only three weeks old. I am number three." She smiled and showed me a 3 patched on her sleave. 
"So have you had your surgery yet?" I asked. She lifted up her shirt and showed me a scar going down her chest as an answer.
"We all get them our second day." She explained. That meant that mine was tommorow. At that moment Agent Grey came knocking on the door. Eve pulled down her shirt as I walked to open the door.
"You are due in the training room in twenty minutes. Your wet suits will be in your closet." He closed the door and left.
"Well, I'll be leaving to go get changed and give you some time." She smiled and left.

I walked over to the closet and looked for the wet suits. I was so surprised when I saw the closet. It was a huge walk in closet with all sorts of cloths. The only difference between those and the best brands were that these all had a a seven stitched somewhere on the article of clothing. There was whole rack of wet suits there were about twenty suits all black and navy blue. They all had a number seven stiched on a sleave in red. I pulled one off a rack and began to change.
