The sea had called her since birth…whether due to flawed seamen fathers, or Divine seed in her blood.
How her heart yearned, ached to be with it and never leave… “oh, to be a mermaid”, her childhood wish.
The rock was high and firm above magnificent waves—their melded colors mercurial, gemlike; but when twilight wrapped its cape around her, she heard the siren’s sing-song melody…and slipped into salt-rich beckoning depths.
