The Little Mermaid
It's me. A good writer. My friends think so. Anyway, this is story #2. On with the show. trips leaving Ouch.
at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has ev'rything?
Look at this trove
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Lookin' around here you'd think
(Sure) she's got everything
The titans were at the tower eating a quiet dinner. Well not really. Beast boy kept yelling at Cyborg for making roast beef. Cyborg just said that it wasn't his fault that Beast boy was a vegetarian. Robin tried to shut them up, while Raven tried convincing Starfire she didn't need new clothes. Or a makeover. Or a new hairstyle. Or shoes. Or anything. She was fine with the way she was. But what she didn't plan on was fate had other plans for her. Suddenly the alarm went off. Raven was happy for that. No more noise.
Robin then said it was Mumbo at the pier taking a ton of jewels. Literally. It was a packaging warehouse there and he had taken a crate. Maybe more. As they arrived they didn't see him. Images of their last flight went through them. Mumbo turned the titans into animals. They hated that. It was weird. Mumbo then came out running and laughing. Robin shouted for the team to attack. Beast boy ran at him as tiger and was turned into a kitten and couldn't change back. at all. Cy threw a beam from his sonic cannon and Mumbo turned it into a blast of bubbles. Cyborg couldn't atack with his cannon so he did punches and kicks.
Mumbo got mad and turned him into tinker toys. Starfire attacked with a barrage of starbolts. He turned them into leaves. Then he turned her into a ragdoll. Robin threw a group of birdarangs but Mumbo morphed them into real birds. Then he knocked Robin out. But for a few seconds. He then turned to Raven.
"Wow Mumbo. You've learned knew tricks. But you are going to pay for what you did a few months ago." She growled.
got gadgets and gizmos aplenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
(You want thingamabobs?
I got twenty)
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more
"That will be hard for you because you won't touch me." he said that and hit Raven with a blast of his wand.
Robin jumped onto him as he did so , but it still hit Raven and she fell into the pier.(She was 15 ft in the air.) Robin broke his wand. They all turned back to normal. Well almost all of them. Raven came up to the surface coughing. The titans went to her and she tried to pull herself up but couldn't.
"Raven are you ok?" Robin asked her.
wanna be where the people are
I wanna see
Wanna see 'em dancin'
Walkin' around on those
(Whad'ya call 'em?) oh - feet
Flippin' your fins you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumpin', dancin'
Strollin' along down a
(What's that word again?) street
"I feel strange."she responded. Every one noticed her hair was much longer. It went down to her back. Robin helped her get out and when he did they were all surprised. As Raven turned over she almost screamed. She had a tail. A fish tail. Her clothes were destroyed and she had a fish tail and her chest had fish scales on it. She was a mermaid. She turned toward Mumbo who was sneaking away. They caught him except Raven stayed in position. She yelled at him for a cure.
"I don't know the cure. But I do know you have your legs still."
"Hello fish tail."she said wagging it.
"As long as your completely dry you have legs. If water is anywhere on you part of your mermaid self will return. If your completely wet your clothes desintagrate."
Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wish I could be
Part of that world
What would I give
If I could live
Outta these waters?
What would I pay
To spend a day
Warm on the sand?
Betcha on land
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women
Sick o' swimmin'
Ready to stand
"It's basicly a curse." Robin said.
"Yes. But I do know that the cure has something to do with TRUE love."
The titans went home to dry Raven. They put her in the back seat of the Car with Robin. He volonteered to prop up Raven. Star carried Robins bike to the Tower. Robin was drying off Raven's face with a rag. She didn't mind.
ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions
And get some answers
What's a fire and why does it
(What's the word?) burn?
"So Raven I guess your going to watch out for water and not bath for a while. Man you're gonna stink." Beast Boy said looking to Raven as they drove home.
Raven hit him with her tail and that shut him up and they finally got home. Now Raven could dry off.
it my turn?
Wouldn't I love
Love to explore that shore above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world
