The next day
" I still don't get why she turned into dust. " Cleo says.
" Me either. " Rikki agrees.
" I guess we will never know. " Emma states.
" Guess not. " Amber agrees.
" It's all over though. I guess that's the point. " Melissa says.
" Ya. I leave tomorrow. " Amber whispers.
" Same " Melissa agrees.
" Your leaving too ? " Cleo asks
" Ya. " Melissa answers.
" I'll miss you. " Cleo says. " Both of you. "
" I'll only been here a week. " Amber states.
" So. You're an amazing person. Even if we did think you were evil. " Cleo adds
" Thanks. " Amber says.
" So why are you leaving Melissa ? " Emma asks
" I need to go home. Talk to my dad. Tell him the truth. " Melissa answers
" The whole truth ? " Cleo asks
" Yes the whoe truth, I'm gonna tell him what I was really doing here this year. I'm gonna tell him I'm a mermaid and that my mom was one too. " Melissa
" Wow that's bold. " Rikki declares
" I'm tired of lying to him. " Melissa clarifies.
" I guess within the next few months we are all gonna be split up then. " Cleo adds.
" What do you mean Cleo ? " Emma asks " Me and you will still be here. "
Cleo shakes her head. " I'm going to live with my mom. "
" Oh. " Emma replies
" What about Rikki ? " Amber asks.
" Me and my dad are moving. " Rikki answers.
" Oh. " Amber replies " I guess we are all splitting up then. "
" Ya. But we'll be okay. Plus we might meet again in time. " Melissa says
" Yes you never know what life has in store for us. " Cleo agrees
" I feel like going swimming. " Rikki says
" You always want to swim " Melissa jokes.
" Do not. " Rikki argues
" Ya you do. " Melissa teases
" Okay. Maybe I do. " Rikki agrees
" But I agree the five of us should all race the the moon pool for old times. " Melissa adds
The five girls sit on the beach.
" I can't believe this is going to be my last swim with you four. " Amber says
" As you said earlier you've only know us a week. " Cleo adds.
" Ya I know. " Amber clarifies
The five girl get up take hands and run into the water.
Well that's it I'm done.
