A Merman's Tale 44Chapter 44: Homeward BoundA Merman's Tale 44 by uglygosling
My face was stinging when I regained what most humans would consider to be full consiousness, but I immediately understood the reason why.
"Thank you, that will be sufficient" I said.
I the opened my eyes. Diane was seated to my right, her hand wrapped around mine. With our fingers webbed as they are, neither of us can really intertwine our fingers. The moment we made eye contact she practically fell on top of me crying with heartfelt relief. I'm sure I shed some tears too.
"You're back! You're back! Thank you for coming back!" she managed to say.
Diane soon regained her composure, and we then shared a most heartfelt hug. We were reluctant to let go, but Bones McCoy was waiting with remarkable patience to have his say.
"Mr Sc...Harry...you are a very lucky man to have your liver where your heart should be!" he said as he stood to my left, hands on his hips, a wry smile on his face.

A Merman's Tale 43Chapter 43: A Time of TrialA Merman's Tale 43 by uglygosling
The medivac chopper had barely set down on the Mermaid's flight pad before some of her crew were carrying Harry's litter toward the open door. Other hands then reached out and pulled him inside. Once he was situated two other British seamen carried me out and helped me aboard as well. Two paramedics were tending to my friend as I took my place in a corner and the helicopter lifted up into the night sky. Even though he was now getting the best care possible until we arrived at the hospital, my feeling of unease was growing again. Harry was drifting into unconsiousness, and I felt so frustrated there seemed to be nothing I could do to help him.
One of the medics must have sensed my mood, for he briefly turned to look my way and said "Please try not to worry too much, Diane. We will be at the hospital within the hour."
"Thank you" I finally managed to say.
About ten minutes into our flight a warning beep began sounding. Will, the EMT
TrappedThe wheels of the wizard's wagon were irrevocably stuck.Trapped by rsbohn
"Goblin muck," he muttered, tasting it and glancing about for the trap's setters.
He smelled them before he saw them; they sauntered from the woods to the north, twenty-five of the goblin army's finest.
"Cornered at last," said the smallest and wartiest. "There's no escape, so give it up, or we'll kabob you."
A general cheer rose up for kabob-ing.
"Fine," said the wizard, opening the rear wagon door. "But what will you do with her?"
"Eat her," rumbled the contingent, already drooling. "And sell her hair to sailors for luck."
There was a splash, and out she wriggled, ten feet of topaz-scaled mermaid.
"You can try," she said, grinning three rows of pointed teeth and lashing her tail.
"Yes, we will!"
The wizard climbed to the top of his wagon and waited. He'd warned the goblins back at Carskill. Now they'd find out for themselves just what a mermaid could do to sharkskin, sea turtle shells... or goblin flesh.
The Oyster's Pearl: SacraficesIt was just too good to be true. The Soul Siren had the most successful hunt in what seemed like ages, his stomach filled of many tiny humans with one human in his hand, most likely dead from drowning. He was about to go back to his palace, give the human to his pet, and sleep for the day when he suddenly heard a loud scream that reached his ears and he swam over to see a set of broken windows and Aquarius, smiling nervously. See what happens when the king just goes to eat and comes back to see something broken?The Oyster's Pearl: Sacrafices by BookSmart16
While Pipes was angrily scolding at the merman for breaking said windows, Noroi was quiet until he spoke up with a glare, "You lie."
"What? But he broke the windows!" The advisor exclaimed.
"I learned from my pet that there are some people you can't trust. I don't think my insignificant pet would have the power and skill to do it. He's lying."
" Excuse you? Okay first of all!...I'm not your damn pet. I'm being held captive against my own will!" Aquarius snarled angrily for d
Song of the DeepThe night was cold and the wind howled like a beast in distress as its invisible essence danced over the flow of the land. The boy walked against its breath carrying a ragged cloth filled with morsels.Song of the Deep by Agacora
He could smell the salt in the air and feel the push and pull of the eternal tide drawing him in.
Above not a single star was seen and below was the ever crashing waves; where they lead he did not now.
Why exactly he had run off to the shoreline in the dead of night with scraps from the night's dinner evaded the boy as he crouched behind a clump of sea grass to banish the cold from his arms.
There was the tugging again as the tide swelled. It was as if the sea itself was whispering to him, calling him, to sink into it's vast depths. And now he was certain he could hear a faint song despite the crashing of the waves. It's tune wash soft and comforting, like a lullaby, and made him want to fall into a deep, deep, sleep. Maybe this was all a dream.
He examined the crude bag's c
