DIANA THE MERMAID
I was surprised when Tracy took me to a huge sea, very huge and deep that noone can swim to the middle without being killed or swallowed by the water.
Tracy: Diana, this is the place.
Me: you mean here.
I said looking all around the place.
Me: how is this place connected to your beauty?
I asked her in total confusion.
Tracy: hahaha. Are you sure you will be able to handle it. Remember, if you are not able to handle this secret you will die!!
Me: haba, I will handle the secret, just show me the secret behind this your beauty and nothing shall I ever asked from you again.
Tracy: ok if you say so.
She said and looked everywhere to ensure that nobody was looking at us. Then she got close to the water and immediately the water touched her, I almost jumped out of my skin.
I hooked as I remembered my promise of keeping her secret a secret.
She laughed. Immediately the water touched her, she changed into a mermaid or mami water as you guys do called it.
Me: I think I want to go home now.
I said as I turned back wanting to run home. She laughed and looked at me with her blue eyes and my legs were fixed in a particular spot, I couldn’t move neither could I even turn.
Tracy: you think I will let you go after seeing this? Never!! The whole world will definitely here of it. You are going to follow me now.
She commanded and I began to move towards her. From her waist to her feet were not in human form, it was a long beautiful tail with scales and fins to enable her swim efficiently.
When I got close to her, she held me and dived into the water.
DEEP INSIDE THE SEA
I couldn’t breathe well but her own case was totally different. She could breathe and talk under water.
She kept assuring me as she held me tight swimming very fast like a submarine deep down into the sea.
I was out of breathe. She left me as she swam very fast to were some under water plants were growing. She plucked some and swam back to me..
Tracy: eat this!!
She said giving me the underwater plants. I hurriedly took it from her and ate it.
After thirty seconds of eating the plant, my breathe was fully restored and I could also talk and breathe under water.
Me: what did you give me to eat?
I asked horrified.
Tracy: don’t be afraid. Those herbs will make you have control under water but it won’t last long so you are advised to swim very fast and follow me.
Me: to where?
Tracy: common Diana, you ask too much questions just follow me..
She said. I was not a good swimmer so she held me and the two of us were swimming fast to the unknown place she is taking me to.
At this stage in time, I didn’t know if I should be afraid or angry, happy or sad for my life.
Here am I swimming very fast with a mermaid to an unknown place. I was afraid but yet still amazed. Under water feels great. The temperature here was cool and enjoyable with different fishes of different shape, size, colour and species swimming round us.
They weren’t afraid of Tracy as she do touch or hold them but my case was different as they were afraid and running away from me..
We continued swimming to the place where she is taking me to.
Me: *in my mind* Oh God deliver me!!
