That’s what any normal Mer would have done. Of course, if I was like the rest, I wouldn’t have been lurking around that party yacht, trying to catch a glimpse of the humans.

And he’s offering me everything I’ve ever wanted: A chance to see land.
Those stormy blue eyes don’t hurt, either.
Now I have to decide. Is it worth risking everything I’ve ever known, everything I’ve ever believed, to follow my heart? How can I say yes?
But how can I possibly say no?
