Chapter 3: Out of a horror film…
I woke up the next feeling like garbage. Not only after my horrific experience with that giant monster thing, but I had the worst headache known to man (the preferred term I was going to say was "migraine" but I'm an idiot) "Hey Dan!" I turned around and there stood Billy already in his snorkel gear. "Ready to go mermaid hunting?" He asked. "Dude, I hardly got any sleep last night." I said. "Why?" He asked. "Oh no big deal. All I did was look for the mermaid and got attacked by some God forsaken monster with tentacles." I said nonchalantly. "You got attacked by WHAT!?" He said. "The exact same thing happened to me last night except I was dreaming. And that thing attacked me before we found you!" "You're joking, right?" I said bewildered. "I'm not. Strange things have been happening here lately." He wondered out loud. "Speaking of that, where in Gods name are we?" I asked as we headed out on deck. "We're on my uncles boat the S.S. Cassandra off the coast of that island over there. Its called Ilandra." He said and pointed way out in the distance. A small island was way off on the horizon. You would've needed binoculars to spot it. "My parents always send me and my sister Sheena here for the summer. It beats sitting at home for three months huh?" He said. "I just play video games everyday." I said. We both started out on the ocean. This time however I could still walk on water. God hates me doesn't he? I thought to myself. Billy didn't seem impressed me walking beside him on water. He kept his eyes focused ahead. Showalter and Wickman said that she had long blonde hair and had a bright green fish tail. Kinda weird when you think about it. Half human, Half-fish. Imagine competing in the Olympics? You wouldn't have to even train! But I wonder if she could talk? That would be the best thing ever! All of a sudden Billy started thrashing around. What's this kids problem any way.
"Stop it! Stop kicking me!" The heck is that? I turned around and guess who was behind us? None other than Sheena. "Sheena, what are you doing here?" Billy asked. "What are YOU doing here?" She replied snottily. "Learn some manners young lady!" She replied my smacking me across the face. And believe me, that hurt like heck. "Dan shut up. You're not a part of this." She said. "Yes I am! I'm the main character for Gods sake. You can't tell me what to do!" I protested. "I just did. And why are you two out here when Dr. D told us not to be out here this far?" She said eyeing us suspiciously. "No special reason. Just showing Dan around." Billy said. "Yeah sure Billy. You two are out snorkeling at 6:30 in the morning exactly where you're not supposed to be. AND where you burned you're foot on that fire coral over there." Sheena said pointing at the reef. "Look. We'll be back in couple minutes, 'kay?" Billy said. "I don't think so. You two are coming with me right now back to the ship before Dr. D blows a gasket." Sheena demanded. Just then I heard a splash in the water. It's gotta be the mermaid! I thought. I immediately took off running. "DAN! Get back here!" Billy shouted. "Since when could he do that?!" Sheena asked. She probably noticed I could run on water. I saw another splash off in the distance. I also took off at it.
Were they following me? I turned around and saw Billy and Sheena swimming away towards the boat. That's when I saw it. I didn't notice it at first but I suddenly saw what it was: a large triangle in the ocean heading STRAIGHT TOWARDS ME. It's a shark. I sidestepped it and hoped it kept moving. I could hear my heart pounding inside my chest. The shark turned around and sped straight at me. "You've got to be joking." I said. Not really. It was that voice again. "Leave me alone." I shouted at it. Hey, don't blame me if you end up as this sharks next meal. Follow my advice or you'll end up dead. That voice had a point. Look, I'll be over there as fast as I can to help you okay? Hang tight. I was suddenly thrust back into reality and nearly got swept off my feet by the shark. I quickly got my footing and ran. The shark quickly caught up and began circling me. Everything leading up to this, the fear, anxiety suddenly caught up to me. I felt tired. Then a plan popped out. It was crazy. But it was my only shot at making it out alive. I turned around and shot towards the reef. The shark had trouble catching up to me. I quickly jumped on the reef and landed on my stomach. I screamed. Pain shot through my body like fire. The one that stood out was a sharp pain in my leg. I turned around and saw the unthinkable: My leg was caught in the sharks jaw.
I was probably being overdramatic back there but what happened next was a blur. The shark attempted to pull me into the water. Just then, a splash made him release my leg and jerk toward it (the splash, I mean) I took this moment to study my leg. There was a deep cut where the shark grabbed it. I had already started bleeding. I looked up and saw the shark charge forward. I quickly hopped up as my last means of defense. There was a loud thump. Something came between the shark and me. The water started churning white as the shark started swimming all over the place. I struggled to keep my balance and fell back in the water. I suddenly saw a long green fish tail go above the surface then head back below. I saw the shark try to snap at something a couple of times but missed. Over the roar of the waves, I heard shrill, animal squeals. Sharks don't squeal. What the heck is going on here?! As the shark started fighting I got a good look at it. It was probably 10 feet long. It was a hammerhead so it's head was wide on the top and each eye was on each end. Suddenly, the fish tail rose up and smacked the shark directly on top of its head. It went under and a couple feet away I saw the shark swimming away. The sea suddenly became strangely calm. "You're okay right?" The voice said. It sounded a lot closer this time. "Yeah. Now tell me. Who the heck are you?!" I shouted. "Well if you insist…" It trailed off. The fish tail suddenly came towards me. The creature then lifted its head. It was a head with long blonde hair. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was the mermaid.
