The Mermaid ch one and twoThe mermaid
By morgon smith
My name is morgon smith and this is my incredible true story. This is the story about what happened on one incredible summer.
It was a cool and crisp night and I was walking back from the local teen hang out which was a pizza shop near the center of town. My brown red hair flew into my face as the wind picked up. There were many shops down town and I passed a lot of them on my way home. In this small town there are normal just shops that were necessary to the people who lived in the town. But there are some shops that arent used by everyone like the skin care and beauty shop which sold lotions and stuff that makes people pretty or at least pretty in there minds. But out of all these shops there was one shop that no one not even adults went to.
This particular shop was called la magic. It had a lot of strange stuff in the shop like skulls. Kids my age and older made up stories about there being a witch in the shop and the witch likes to

When I woke up I was still outside on the deck. From the position of the moon it looked like only a few minutes later. I was happy that I did not wake up later because if I did then I would have been very cold and I might have gotten sick from that.
After I woke up I looked around and when back inside were it was warm. I was also getting very sleepy when I came inside. I wanted to go back to sleep and forget about the events that led up to me passing out.
Mom I am tired I am going to go to bed ok! I yelled making sure that my parents new were I was going to be if they needed me.
Ok! was the response I got from down stairs in my parents living room.
I picked up my favorite blanket from the couch upstairs and I took it into my room and put it on my bed. Then I went into my bathroom and I brushed my teeth and did everything that people normally do before they go to bed. When I was done doing that I went into my bed room. I got into my pajamas and tu
It's just a bit of magicLily smiled and looked around under water. She had scuba gear on tightly. She stared at the fished and swam to the bottom. She smiled playing with a fish. She looked around. So many colours...theyre all so beautiful! She thought smiling. She closed her eyes and sighed happily into her mask. Suddenly she felt something touching her hair. She whimpered and looked back. She saw webbed hands and her eyes went wide. The webbed hands grabbed her shoulder and cold blue eyes met her own brown ones. She stared seeing a silver looking man. He had a human top but a fishs tail. She began to thrash around and the merman grinned at her. He wrapped his arms around her and she looked at her oxygen supplies. She shook her head as he swam deeper into the ocean. She began to cry and shake her head. Her goggles began to fog up and filled with her tears. The merman stroked her hair and smiled. He drove to a large water city with others of his type. He began to talk as LilIt's just a bit of magic7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Ever growing apart
I know it deep down in my heart
Things are done
Time to start anew
But I really still miss you
Why why why must we change
Can things stay the same?
Do you feel the strain?
Ripping us apart?
I feel like I am cheating on my heart
Was it real?
Were we the same?
The memories don't feel the same
When we grew apart

I thought about the idea of telling my friends about me being a mermaid for a long time but I couldnt decide what I should do. One problem I had was whether or not they were going to believe me and I was also thinking about showing them before I told them. And there were really two problems with telling them. One of the problems was the fact that I didnt want anyone to know because they could tell everyone and I would end up being a science experiment. The second problem I had was them was if I didnt show them would they think I am crazy. Also I would still be alone in this whole mermaid thing even if I told them because they wouldnt be mermaids and so they wouldnt understand how I felt about protecting my secret and I would still be alone.
But even with all the consequences I came up with I still felt that I should tell them about my secret. And thats when I realized my friends wouldnt care what I am they were my friends to the end. That&

It was a few weeks after I had discovered I was a mermaid. I was walking on the beach on a cloudy blustery day. I had already found out that rain water did not make me become a mermaid all the other forms of water not falling from the sky would make me change. I was walking close to the shore but not to close as the tide was coming in and I was not alone. I reached down to pick up a beautiful shell
Then all of a sudden it was like I was blasted to a different time I could see what happened around this shell the day before. I could see little kids playing on the beach and looking at the shells that they had found but could not keep. It was like I was there. Then just as sudden as I was blasted there I was back on the beach. I shook my head confused. What had just happened? I wondered.
I didnt know it at the time but that was just the beginning of my new found powers. The very next day after the beach incident I was sitting in the pizza parlor. There was a new guy sittin

Yellow, red, brown
The air is crisp
Halloween's in town
There are children out on the street
Yelling "Daddy I got a treat"
The lights go out
The children all sleep
Then ghost and ghouls walk the street
For they just want to trick or treat
Satin DollWhen I was eight, my mother brought a china doll back from Paris. It had black curls, rosy cheeks, a smart mouth, and big green eyes. The doll wore a dress in the latest style, a high-necked, printed blue satin with lace petticoats. I loved her, and I liked to think she loved me back. I told her all my secrets and cried to her whenever Mother or Miss Winters were mean. I called her Lucinda and wished she were real.Satin Doll6 years ago in Horror More Like This
When I was ten, my cousin Albert told everyone at Christmas dinner that I was hiding my potatoes in my napkin. No one believed when I denied it. Lucinda listened to me for hours.
I had just turned eleven and Mother and Miss Winters agreed that I was too old for dolls. It was time I learned to act like a lady. Lucinda was put away in a chest in the attic, along with the rest of my toys and a fair amount of my clothing. I had new frocks and bonnets now, and Lucinda would stay safe and undamaged until I had children of my own.
I cried myself to sleep that night, and I dream

When Hans first moved here from Germany, I barely knew him since I was a year below and we shared no classes. But he became my quick friend due to a single interest: running. He was one of the fastest boys I had ever seen, and ran with a kind of grace that made six miles seem like two steps. I, too, was a running addict, but I doubt anyone could have matched his speed. Even though he was very proficient in English, we made an even stronger connection in the fact that we both spoke German; my grandfather was to thank for this fact, mostly out of his arrogant pride. It was uncanny how many interests we shared, and hard not to gain a sincere respect and liking for him. He soon became that one person in my life I could confide in, knowing his opinion of me wouldn't change.
This fact didn't change even the day I learned of his secret. We were o

Far beyond the stars
Is a dream of many people
To travel there and explore
To finally find what were always looking for
To have a place unknown
To have a place called home
To have a place all our own
To have a place were dream run wild
Thats what were looking for
We look for this place to know were we are
To know were going
To know were from
To know how we fit in this crazy puzzle
But this place doesnt exist far beyond the stars
We can see it
It lives in the windows of our eyes
For when we concur of souls
Were nothing but free
