Twelve year old Princess Melody smiled as she helped decorate the Christmas tree in the palace. The tree had been delivered as a gift from a king in France a few weeks ago to her father as a thank you gift for the help her father had given him. Her grin widened as she heard her mother humming on the other side of the tree. "Mom," she said as she hanged a seashell on one of the branches, "Ryan invited me to come over to his house the day before Christmas Eve. He said you and dad could come too if you wanted to."
Ryan was a merman who lived in Atlantica. He had blonde hair and a green tail with the most beautiful green eyes Melody had ever seen. The princess had accidentally bumped into him a few months ago when she had been turned into a mermaid by the sea witch Morgana. She had been attempting to steal her grandfather's triton at the time because she had been deceived by the witch. He had become her best friend since then.
From the other side of the tree, Ariel smiled. She liked Ryan. He was a very nice young man, and treated her and Eric with utmost respect. He reminded her of her childhood friend named Urchin. "Okay. We will all go then, but I am going to have to ask Daddy to turn us into mermaids and your dad into a merman."
"Yes!" Melody shouted excitedly.
Two weeks later Ariel, Eric, and Melody went outside the castle that they lived in. Ariel and Eric grinned as Melody went into the ocean. They both swam after her.
"Wait up!" Eric said.
The black haired girl stopped swimming. She sighed as she waited for her parents to get to where she was. She was so excited. They were going to go to Ryan's house today!
Eric stared at his wife and rolled his eyes. He was less thrilled about going because Melody had a crush this boy. He shook his head. She was growing up so fast.
Ariel touched his hand gently. "It is going to be okay," she whispered.
He nodded then a mischievous grin came across his face. "I can get to Melody before you," he said as he swam faster.
"Think again!" Ariel replied as she swam past him.
A few minutes later, King Triton appeared in front of them. He smiled as he heard them laughing. He cleared his throat. "Now I believe my granddaughter has a friend she wants to visit," he said. His triton let out a small glow and hit the three people in front of him.
Melody looked down at where her feet had once been. She now had a coral tail with creamed- colored sea shells. Her mother had an emerald tail with purple shells, and her father had a royal blue tail. "Let's go!" she shouted as she dived in the water.
The adults chuckled then followed her.
After swimming under the water for forty-five minutes, they reached their destination. Melody timidly knocked on the door. She beamed as Ryan opened it.
"Come on in," he said.
The royal family entered the sea house. It was a small place. It just had two rooms and a kitchen.
Ariel smiled as she looked out the window. Right across from this house was where her friend Urchin had once lived. She wondered what he was doing now.
"Ryan, your mom needs help wi-" a familiar voice began to say.
Ariel turned around. "Urchin?" she asked.
The blonde haired merman grinned as he saw his old friend. "Ariel, it is so good to see you!"
"Urchin, Ryan, will you two please help me get th-"
Ariel stopped hugging Urchin and gasped. There before her was her best friend Gabriella, a deaf mermaid, and she was talking! "How-" the red head began.
"It is a long story," Gabriella said. "You are going to want to sit down."
Urchin grabbed some chairs made of sponge for everyone to sit down in. He sat down beside his wife. "Well, Ariel it was a few months after you left…" the blonde merman said as he began his story.
Hello, readers. This is my second Little Mermaid story. I have never written a Christmas story before, and I noticed no one has ever written of this pairing. Urchin and Gabriella are from the Little Mermaid tv series that used to come on tv. You can still find the series on . Tell me what you think of this so far, and be honest.
