Time has passed and the girls survived college! They just graduated and now are on they're way back to Australia.

Cleo's point of view

It was a scary feeling to enter back into the Golden Coast, I was hoping that every forgot about the whole "mermaid thing" but sadly they didn't. Reporters crowded around us at the airport, we just ran as fast as we could, we didn't know where to go. But the first thing we saw was my house, so we dashed in there locking all doors, closing all windows. My dad, Sam, and Kim all decided to live in Florida for a while they left when we were gone. So they said we can keep the house to ourselves.

"Well that was a great welcome back!" Bella said sarcastically.

"oh come on! it's not that bad." I said.

knock, knock, knock!

"Who could that be? No one is suppose to be here?"

"Don't answer it!" Emma warned me.

Then Will interrupted "But what if it's Sophie?"

"Ok, ok. I'll open it."

"Cleo, NO!"

I opened the door and squeezed her way through the door and quickly closing it behind her, making sure no reporters got in.

"Dr. Denman?"

"Hi, girls. How was college?"

"Great. But why are you here?..."

"I wanted to check on you guys-"

"Great, well we have things to do. Bye now!"

"oh no, no, no. I want tests."

"Tests! WHY!" Rikki said.

"Because, I haven't seen you in a while and I need to be updated on my mermaid file."

"Your what! We are not your test freaks!"

"Rikki, calm down." Zane said.


"So, pull up your sleeves girls." She then got out a little needle.


"That was a lot of tests!" Bella said.


Rikki's point of view

Zane then pulled me aside to talk to me. "Want to go for a swim?"

"What? Zane are you crazy! The mermaids of the Golden Coast just came back, don't you think we would attack just a little attention?"

"Not really."

"So you didn't notice the mob of reporters following us!"

"I did. Rikki chill, come on it's the first time in like... forever since you swam here. Doesn't that make you want to jump in?"

"Not really."

"oh, come on. Will you do this for me?"



"Ok, but for you."

"That's all I need."

So we then ran out the door pushing reporters out of the way. A little hard though-but only because they tried to mer-merize me! When we finally got to the beach Nate spotted us.

"Hey, what's up bro?"

"Going swimming."

"With the MERMAID!"

"Can't you ever keep your mouth shut? We don't want the whole Australia to know." Zane said

"Can't keep the Nate-inator quiet."

"What can we do to make you shut up?"

"A date."

"If you want me to dress up like a girl then forget it!"

"No, NO! I want a date with Bella."

"She is dating Will."





"Aw, come on. Can't I at least have a date with Cleo!"

"If I let you go on ONE date with Cleo, you will shut up?"

"Like a mouse with cheese."


"Uh, yes."

"Oh... Well we'll get back to you on that right now we have to go." Then we dived into the water and went to Mako.

"So... when are we going to have the wedding?" I said.

"We could do it soon, but I first have to tell my dad."

"Ya, I do too."

"Hey, why don't we tell our dads over dinner tomorrow night?"

"Ok, sounds good."

"Great. Now that we're alone..."

Zane reached closer to me, his arms wrapped around me, and we kissed.

"Speaking of food, I'm hungry."

"Want to go back to my house, I can cook us up some lunch."

"Ok." So Zane and I jumped into the water and went to his house for lunch.

Bella's point of view

Will and decided to spend our first day back, at his shed. We always have fun there and it's very relaxing. When we walked in Sophie was sitting on the couch coming over to give Will a hug.

"Will! I have missed you so much!"

"I've missed you too, Soph."

"Oh, hi Bella."

"Hey, Sophie."

"Still a mermaid?"


"Cool. Well, um... I have to go. I'm going to see a movie with some friends, care to join?"

"No thanks. We're fine here."

"Ok, bye!"

Once she shut the door Will spoke "So... what do you want to do?"

"What could we do?"

"We could... play a board game?"

"Na, board games make me bored."

"What about a movie?"

"How about we go to the beach?"

"On the first day back... and everyone knowing-"

"We have to try eventually, we can't live in fear forever. Plus maybe they forgot."

"But the reporters didn't."

"Aw, come on!"

"Ok, Ok. I'll do it."

So, Will and I spent our day at the beach. When we first got there everyone just stared but we ignored them and eventually they went back to whatever they were doing.

"Want some popcorn?" Will asked me.


"Ok, I'll be right back!"

Then, after a few minutes he came back with a bag of popcorn for the both of us. "Aw, thanks Will!"

"Your welcome."
