Nothing is more exhilarating than the dancing waves and the wind whispering into my ears as I sail under the sun with my dog, Tin Tin. With the phone my parents gave me as a 10th birthday present, I photograph the flying fishes and dolphins jumping across the ocean.
I shrieked as my motorboat cronked out and I fell into the air. Gasping for air and kicking in panic, my body started to feel funny. My legs began to shrink, and my tailbone burst out of my back. A shiny green tail is growing .....
“I am a mermaid!“
I watched in horror as a giant purple octopus swallowed my phone whole! While I was panicking about what to do next, a troop of little mermaids swam over and told me to duck in and swim inside the octopus’s stomach when he yawns.
Swimming in, I found myself in a very dark pool of slimy ooze. After some fumbling around, my hands wrapped around a rectangle-shaped object. It was my phone! Thank god it was waterproof. I pressed the home button and turned the flashlight on.
Suddenly, I gushed out of the octopus, carried by strong whirls made by the little mermaids tickling the octopus!
"Thank you for saving me,” I said.
The mermaids escorted me to their kingdom. Turtles, lobsters, crabs, and fishes danced to welcome me. I felt like an alien visitor.
“What is that?“ asked one of the mermaids curiously.
They were fascinated by the mermaid movie playing on my phone. I held the phone in front of them, and their kingdom filled with laughter at all the funny bits.
Now the moment came.
“I really have to go home! My mother must be very worried!”
While hugging my mermaid friends, drops of tears rolled from their eyes and transformed into a necklace of pearls! In return, I left my phone with them so we could stay in touch.
"Goodbye!” I cried as I swam back ashore.
“Are you okay, my dearest daughter? And where did you get such a beautiful necklace?! “ my mom trembled.
I gave my mom a big hug ed and my dog licked my leg frantically!
What an unforgettable journey!1 / 9
