#89 Sirens of the Sea

Her only condition had been that he kept her a secret. He knew nobody would believe him. Mermaids were only heard about in sailor fables and songs. Yet last night he had told the little boy about her in a drunken stupor. Word had spread like wildfire through the village and they said his loneliness was driving him insane.

The next morning he rowed out as usual to their spot but she wasn’t there. Thinking of her palaces on the seabed he dove into the water.

She watched from below and moved the bead on her abacus to the right.
