"Flow! Come down here this instant!" my father yells to my quarters on the upper floor.
"Yes, father." I reply. I make my way downward. Swimming. Yes, I am not ordinary human. For, I am a mermaid. Living in the lost city of Atlantis.
I am Flow. A Junior Mermaid. I was having to prepare for my classes also. Studies were very important. I was Princess of Atlantis. Along with many others. Atlantis was a magical kingdom. Full of mysteries. I explored alot, with my BMFF! Best. Mermaid. Fishes. Forever; Shimmer. I only lived with my father, for my mother was no-where to be found. I knew nothing of her.
This bothered me a great deal. A child.. knowing nothing of her own mother. I was 15 now. I was of age. Of course, really I was 2,365 years old!
I promised I would learn of the past of my mother.. and if she was alive, meet her.
I polish my tail, brush my long pink hair, cleanse my shells, and am out the castle, out into the world. I pass some friends. Exchange "Hello's"
I see Shimmer, and excitedly swim to her!
"Heey! Soo missed you last night! Where were you? Missed you at 'The Clam'" She said.
"The Clam" was a popular, new club, for fish as myself. My father rejected me from going there last night, because I was too write a speech for a ceremony.
Shimmer knew it. she was the Duke's son! Very high in position. She was gorgeous. Every boy loved her. But she was taken.
"Tonight we ca- Babe!" she exclaims, as Johnny, "Mr. Perfect" of our school, came by.
They laughed together some more as I rolled my eyes.
I didn't want love, or need it. I was indepedent on my own. Searching for my mother. Men were a distraction. I needed to focus. Ever since I was 11, I wondered why wasn't a mother there for me. My father realized this once, when I asked, and now I have a nanny. Alisia.
Shimmer swishes away to find some new seashells, when Johnny comes over to me. He looks at me, brushes my face..
"What.. W-what are you doing Johnny?"
"Nothing. You're really pretty.."
"Thanks," I say as I brush his hand away and back off slowly. What was happening?
Has he forgotten that my best friend since 2 years old was his Mermaid? Huh? Not me! Johnny wasn't my type. Vain. Him and Shimmer belonged. Both gorgeous, with no care in the world.
Shimmer was smart, adventurous. Always saw the bright side of everything.
Always so Shwishy! That's all she says..
I laugh at the moment, when Johnny looks at me with a puzzeled face. I simple, slap him with my tail and swim away with a triumphant look. That wasn't going to happen. Hmph.
"Shimmer.. My birthday's coming up.." I say, and it was true.
In three days, I was to turn 16 human years! Usually there's a big bash on the day before. Meaning there were big plans for my party. Everyone was coming. But I wasn't worried ont he party.
I had another thought in mind. Concerning a very special woman, I had a want, a need....
Shimmer &&- Johnny
