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.


10. Surgery

The next day, I woke up at 3:00am. I had been dreaming about Jessie all night. I blocked all the thoughts out of my head. Nothing was going to happen between us. Nothing could happen. He is 20 and I am only 16. I decided to just get up. Today was my surgery day, so I was going to get a lot of sleep anyways. I decided to take a shower. I got in the warm shower and scrubbed myself down. I got out dried my hair and slipped on a tank top and a pair of jeans. I tied my hair back and sat on my bed. I still had another 3 hours before the surgery, so I decided to eat an early breakfast. They provided us with all of our meals designed specificaly for our body health and how it aplied to our diafram and lunga, but I wasn't getting breakfast today because my surgery was at 8:00. I grabbed some fruits from the fruit basket that Eve had brought. I cutthem up and made a fruit salad. I finished my meal with still 2 hours to go. I figured Eve should be up by now, so I walked out ofthe door and wandered down the hall. I found my way to room number 3 and knocked on the door. She walked to the door with serious bags under her eyes. 
"Come in." She said grogily. I walked in and saw her room was just like mine. Except her curtains were orange. 
"So what brings you here so early." She asked while changing into her clothing.
"I don't know, I still have 2 hours until my surgery and I didn't know where to go or what to do, so I thought of you." I said. She perked up.
"Really? Thanks!" She smiled. 
"So how did your breathing exam go?" I asked. She was number three which meant her exam was yesterday. 
"Oh it was fine. All I had to do was swim to the bottom of the pool and let my lungs fill with water" shesaid it like it was easy.
"What?" I asked.
"Oh don't worry everything gets so much easyer after the surgery." She assured me. 

We talked for a long time. I really got to know her better. I learned that she loved cats. She worked with animal rescue as volunteer work and she was a dancer. Time flew and flew. Next thing I knew, I had half an hour left before my surgery. I excused myself and left the room. I started making my way down to the surgery room.

When I got there, I was just on time. Jessie was there to perform my surgery himself. His assitants hadn't entered the room until he told them to, so it was just him and me. 
"Hello Kai." He said and smiled at me. I smiled back.
"Hi Jessie." I replied. 
"So we are going to make an insision in your chest and operate from there so I am going to need you to take your shirt off." He said calmly. I hesitated. He must have sensed my worries so he turned around. I took my shirt off and when he truned back around I dropped my shirt to the floor. He looked at me like a precious object. I heard him let a quiet "wow" under his breath. Eventualy all of the assistants were called back in and the surgery began. The last thing I remember was the anesthesiologist puting a mask over my mouth and Jessie mouthing the words "good night"
