We stepped out from the stalagmites we took cover behind. I got a good look at the two Mer.
The Mermaid had long braided red hair, and a purple tail. Her eyes were a beautiful navy blue.
The Merman had dirty strawberry blonde hair, and a green tail. He appeared to be sleeping, probably exhausted from not having enough food.
They both looked pale and thin.
"Who are you, and what are you doing in Fresh Water Territory?" The Mermaid asked abruptly.
My brother clearly wasn't going to awnser her, I mean, what's to be expected from the younger sibling.
"We are from Mako Island Tribe. I am Brendon, and this is Brody. We are here because we're looking for someone."
"Looking for someone? Great excuse." The Mermaid said sarcasticly. "I'm not buying it. And when we are found, you will be punished accordingly for trespassing."
"You mean if we are found."
"No, no. We will be found." I ws about to argue with her. "Don't even try to argue with me it's not going to get you anywhere."
She proceeded to wake up the Merman. "Rodney. Rodney, wake up."
The Merman opened his eyes to reveal really light blue irises. They were almost to bright.
He coughed and blood splattered onto his hand.
"Rodney!" The Mermaid shouted.
I knew exactly what was wrong with him. "Get away from him." The Mermaid looked at me confused. "Get away from him now, unless you want to catch it too."
"What are you talking about?"
"It's a disease you can get from eating a poisonous kelp, and it's very contagious. You need to make zero contact with him from this point on."
"Then how am I supposed to help him?" She asked, tears welling up in her eyes.
"Hope that someone will get here in time."
