His Aquatic Romance

"Human?' The girl cocked her head the other way. I caught a glimpse of pink gills under her chin. 'My sisters told me stories of humans. They said they sometimes sing to them to lure them underwater.' She grinned, showing off her sharp needle-teeth. 'I've been practicing. Want to hear?" ~Julie Kagawa, The Iron King


3. The Constellations

Calypso POV

I swam around the lake, floating above, staring up at the starlit night sky, the constellations were beautiful tonight. I heard the door to the back of the club open, and knowing who it was, I dove back under the surface of the lake.

The owner of the club was my caretaker, I was his prized possession and he always made it his duty to check up on me during the night. I honestly didn't like this man, he stared at me as if he wanted to devour me. 

"Where are you, darling?" I heard him call out.

I sat on the rocks under the lake water, looking up above me, watching as he flashed his flashlight into the lake in search for me.

"I want to know what caused you to pick that little white headed kid?!" He yelled out.

I swam up, and popped my head out of the water and stared at him.

"Why him?" He asked, staring at me.

"Because of all the people you've forced upon me, he's the only one who came to me out of pure curiosity and nothing else," I replied.

"What?! That is nonsense. You can't be with him. Like I've told you before, you are mine." He sternly said.

"I've let you live this long, what makes you think I won't kill you," I asked.

"You aren't capable!"

"You don't know what I'm capable. Now I wish to be alone." I replied, diving back down into the depths of the lake.

"WAIT!" He yelled.

I ignored him, I had nothing else to say to this human. He had no idea who I was or my capabilities. If it weren't for my memories, I could have left this place long ago. But now I need to heal, I touched the scarred skin above my left breast, remembering where he drove a knife into my chest, trying to kill me. Something happened that day, and for some odd reason, my powers were gone.

I began singing a song, I could never forget though, a song that Poseidon himself sings to all of his people, under the sea.

Verse 1
I'll return one day
To the glimmering cove.
I'll return one day
To the 
place I call home.
If anyone needs me,
In the primordial 
sea I shall be,
Amongst creatures that live in the sea.
If anyone needs me,
That's where I'll be.
Verse 2
I'll find my way,
To the lost city
I'll find my way,
To the place that humans call pretty
Verse 3
I'm heading home,
Under the sky's watery dome
I'm heading home,
Back to my father's throne
4th and final verse
Return to me,
My home in the sea,
Return to me,
The life worth living under the sea.
