Did you ever wonder what happens under the water surface? I do not mean what you see when you go diving. I am talking about myths and magic. I am talking about mermaids. When I was a little boy, I was crazy about them. Almost obsessed. My mom and I lived close to the sea and every day I spent at the dock watching my reflection in the water while lying on my tummy. I always hoped to see a different face. I was an 11 year old, not very popular in school and yes, I know, mermaids and seapeople are actually rather something for little girls but what can I say? They fascinated me. So it was only a matter of time before I got bullied. Well, I preferred being near the water anyway, rather than at school, so I tried to lie on prone every single minute during my leisure time and stare into the sea in any wind and weather.
but one day I saw something. At least, I firmly believed in it.
A pair of eyes, just below me, black hair softly moving with the waves and something dark blue shimmering next
