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.


7. Leaving

My parents had taken a lot of time to think it through. They even went into another room to descuss it. If it were up to me, I would already be there. It sounded perfect! I tried listening in on the conversation and my mother's main concern was the fact that I would have to stay away from home for almost a year. Honestly I was ok with that. I really wanted to leave this place. The only two places I had ever been were my home and the pool. I guess my training during the project would involve much more time in the pool, but at least it was a change. Finaly my parents came out of the room they signed the contract and Agent Grey stuffed it inside his breif case along with everything else.
"We'll be here to take her tommorow at 3:00am precisely. You should pack nothing we will provide you with everything you need for the next year." He said. I was releived because I hated packing and I would be so undecided as to what to pack. He was about to step out the door when he turned around.
"Oh and one more thing. No cell phones." He said then turned around and left. I was excited that I was leaving so soon. I couldn't wait to get out of this place and meet Dr. Sidonikov. 
"Kai we will miss you very very much." My mother said putting her hand on my shoulder. It was already around 8:00pm so I made myself a sandwhich and went to bed. The next morning I woke up with my mom and dad hugging each other and waiting for me to wake up.
"What time is it?" I asked with only one eye open.
"Sweaty it's 2:30 you have to get ready to go." My mother said. I guess my father was still a little weary about this whole thing but my mother kept assuring him that everything would be alright. As soon as they left the room, I sat up and looked at myself in the mirror. Ugh, I had bags under my eyes and I had drooled a little. I looked terrible. Plus, my hair was a mess and I had sweat like a pig. I quickly ran to the bathroom and got as fixed up as possible. 
Finally the time came and the doorbell rang. I ran down to hug my parents and swallowed a spoonfull of cheerios and left.
Agent Grey was there with another three guards. They led me to a black car. The windows were tinted so that no one would see what was inside. We drove for about half an hour until we reached a helicopter landing literaly in the middle of nowhere. They helped me onto the helecopter and we flew off. We were in the air for a really long time. I fell asleap pretty early on considering it was 4:00am.

Finally, we spotted some land. They took me to an island! I wonder where it was? I hadn't any idea. Suddenly it hit me that I was here for a year and I could not even contact my parents. It hit me that I was so excited that I never really gave them a proper goodbye or even called Miranda to tell her I was leaving. Maybe she would think that I was ignoring her or something. I was suddenly filled with dread. How could I have forgotten everyone.
My thoughts were interrupted by Agent Grey.
"We're here." He said.
