Lunar de Syrena

Romance / Fantasy

Nightfall of Coastella

The seas were beautiful, the blue oceanic color shining from the sunlight in the sky above the ocean. I swam with some shells I found, and collected on the ocean floor. 


Oh! Forgive me -- I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Syrena Stewart; I am a mermaid. Well, not fully a mermaid as I knew throughout my life. Mermaids kill sailors by luring them to their feeding grounds with their siren songs, and then began devouring the sailors till there is nothing but there bones. 


My mother was one of them who hated humans a lot, but she became pregnant with me while she was killing my father, a missionary. Because of my human side, I was called a abomination to the merfolks. I was abandoned on human land when I was a baby, even my own mother despises me.


The myth of mermaids are true; they sing like sirens, kill people , and devour humans. They are confined to the sea as full mermaids. Because I am half human, I have the ability to grow legs on land. It is a bit painful, and it would take time to get use to. While they have tails, they lack tops and mostly use their hair to cover their chests. As for me, my top is full of crystalline scales; my tail is as well.


Soon, it's time for me to head back home. I swam back to my grotto, which is underneath my house. I climbed on the soft sand to let my tail become legs. My tail split in two; the bones began to reconstruct themselves as my fins became feet, and my scales turn back into human skin making them full human legs. I got up and put my bathrobe on leaving my grotto.


When I get wet my legs become a tail that I often lose my balance if i'm on land, and standing. The full moon on the other hand is much, much worse. When the moon reaches its peak, and the tide is high, I began to feel a lot of pain in my legs that my bones break really bad that it feels like legs are being rip apart.


Sometimes I wonder to myself: Why do I exist? Why am I completely different? Why should I be considered an abomination for being bred by a human? No matter how often I wondered these things, I could never fathom the answers.
