Chapter 2: Playing

"Okay then, let's go play with Winter" He says, standing up and helping me up

"But I don't think I can swim" I reply, adding a pout at the end

"I'll stay close, I promise" He says, "Trust me, you will be safe"

"Okay, but stay really close" I warn him

"Promise" He says, smiling at the end, knowing he got me

We both slowly walk to the edge of the pool. I sit on the side, waiting for him to jump in first. I look down and realize that I still have my pyjamas on. Wait, my pyjamas? I remember clearly that I didn't have pyjamas on when I went to bed. I glance over at Sawyer just in time to see him pull his shirt off. My eyes widen. I quickly flick my sight back to Winter's pool. I smile as I see Winter swim out. She makes that little noise that means she's happy and swims closer to me. I pull off my pyjama shirt after I notice that my bathing suit was underneath it. I look behind me and I see Sawyer pulling a bunch of noodles and floaties out of the storage room. I stand up and yank off my pyjama pants. "Here you go" Sawyer says, throwing in a noodle

Winter happily snatches it and swims in circles. Sawyer jumps in and waits for me. I sit on the edge and hesitantly slide in the water. Sawyer quickly floats over, making sure I'm okay. "I'm okay, Sawyer" I say

"Okay" He says, but still holds my hand

"Sawyer, I need to use that hand in order to swim or float" I quickly lie after I notice that I'm blushing

He drops my hand and I instantly fell cold. Okay. Weird. Winter brings us her duck and Sawyer throws it across the pool. "Ouch, my feet hurt" I whimper in pain

"What's wrong, Hazel?" Sawyer asks, speeding to my side

"My legs hurt" I say as the pain increases

"It's ok, I'll pull you to the side" He says, already halfway there

I look down and I don't see my regular legs that were once there. No, I see a tail, as in, a mermaid tail. My eyes widen. I move what used to be my feet and the flipper moves as well.

Sorry for the cliffy...I just couldn't resist! Anyways, leave some reviews and I'll post the next chapter! I'm actually in the process of writing it, so, you know, review and it'll be up in as least amount of time as I can manage without my grades slipping. BTW, just to be mean, I want at least 5 reviews or I won't post the next chapter!

Keep reading,
