Blood and guts, well, pieces of intestines anyways, happened to be flattened all over the boat dock. "Now what the hell could have done this?", Deputy Groober asked scratching his head. The guy had a weak stomach and he felt something deep in the pit of his stomach, ready to come up his throat, and out of his mouth. "Some rookie you turned out to be, eh?", joked Chief Barley. Deputy Groober just shrugged his shoulders and continued to stare at the guts still scattered all over the dock.

"It's a merman", a girl called out from behind the bushes. The deputy and the chief exchanged glances then stared at the girl. She was making her way out of the bushes dusting off her shorts. "The name's Ginny", she volunteered. Ginny was hoping the two officers wouldn't recognize the tiny blood splatter on her shorts. Ginny caught Groober staring at her so Groober turned away to watch the coroner pick up samples of intestines and place them in jars. Groober made a gurgling noise, moments later he was puking up behind a tree. A tree, that on the other side, contained a human eyeball and some blood smears.

"You said merman, dear?", Barley questioned, "What the hell is a merman?" Ginny looked at Groober who came back wiping his mouth on his sleeve. Ginny saw some remains still left on Groober's sleeve and nearly threw up in her mouth. But instead, she smiled. Before Ginny could answer Chief Barley added, "There ain't no such thing darling".Ginny frowned in disappointment. She looked passed them standing and saw something in the water stirring. "Fine, have it your way then", Ginny snapped. She started walking away when she stopped short and turned her head, "Be back at the docks around ten and you'll see it, you'll see the merman".

Ginny continued to walk on and just before she disappeared she yelled out, "And by the way, the intestines belong to Jumper, Billy Jumper". After that, she was gone. "Billy Jumper?", Groober repeated to no one in particular. Groober turned around and looked at the dock, the intestines had been cleaned up but the residue of where the intestines were remained. "I guess we got a date with a merman chief". The chief turned to Groober, "Yeah, you do!"
