2: 10 year old Billy and his dad have a bizarre adventure at Lake Mermaidia. Now the adventure starts. "Dad look at the bright, blue water, I want to go swimming," exclaimed Billy. "OK, one second let me get your life vest" replied his dad. "I still need a life vest? What ever." said Billy. Billy leaned over to get a fish."Almost got it," he squeaked then "Uh-oh!" and...
3: SPLASH! Billy fell in the water. Waves toppling over him. "Dad.Help!"cried Billy. "Help!" "Billy! Billy! I'll get you, don't worry!" his dad yelled. He leaned over after him. With Billy sailing out farther and farther. "Daddy!" He went under. "Billy, I'm so sorry." My son is gone. He's gone.Billy's dad thought.He's GONE.
4: * * * Where am I? thought Billy. He swam around a little. What the heck! Is that a mermaid? He swam closer. Oh my gosh! It is! A tail with scales. Unbelievable. A mermaid. I need proof so, "Hey mermaid, what ya' doing?" Billy yelled. In a blink of his eye it gone. I'm a freak. I believe in mermaids. How stupid. he thought. How stupid.
5: Billy swam around to find what he thought was a mermaid. "Mermaid, come out come out where ever you are." Nothing happened. "Hello? Yeah, don't come out. I'm gonna be here a while, you better come out NOW!" Billy yelled. "You happy boy?" said a voice. "Uh," is that a mermaid! Billy took a quick glance. A tail with scales! Mermaid! "I said you happy?" the mermaid said with a stern voice.
6: "Yeah," he muttered."Sure" "Well, Hi I'm Sarah. You've figured I'm a mermaid. 'Cause I am. Who are you" asked Sarah. "I... I'm Billy. I'm not a mermaid or merman. By the way I'm lost. I fell off a boat and drowned." answered Billy. "Nice," she said. "Follow me. I wanna show you some where" she took his hand and swam off to (well you don't know where. Not yet)
7: "Where are we?" asked Billy. "This machine transports you to where your suppose to be," she replied. "Wait I'm leaving already?" asked Billy. "Well, yeah you don't belong here. Your family needs you. Get in I'll put you on land" she nudged Billy on the transporter. "See ya' later" "But, I'm not going home." He hopped out. "I'm not leaving-yet"
8: Billy looked at Sarah. "But, you have to go. You live up there I live down here" She tried nudging him again. Billy didn't flinch. "I'm not leaving," announced Billy. "I'm not" "Well someday soon, at least tomorrow you're leaving. Period."she said. "See 'ya tomorrow,"said Billy and swam off to find somewhere to sleep. Poor Billy, thought Sarah. Poor guy.
9: Swoosh! "Morning in the water already?"murmured Billy. I wonder where Sarah is? thought Billy. He got up and swam around to find Sarah. "Hey Billy over here!" hollered Sarah. "Coming!" replied Billy. "You need to go home. NOW." she said with a convincing voice. "Why?" he asked. "No comment" she answered. She started towered the transporter. Followed by Billy.
10: "Ya' ready?" asked Sarah. "Well, I guess," murmured Billy. "What's wrong?"she hissed. "I don't wanna go yet. I wanna stay a little longer," he replied. "I already told you:You live up there. And I live down here. Last time I'm telling you that you're leaving," she demanded. "Well, then turn on the machine-I am leaving" he announced. "I'll Leave"
11: Sarah suddenly felt down. What have I done to Billy. Should I let him go-yes. His family is probably worried sick. It's the right thing to do. "Billy, time to go." he hopped on the transporter. "Bye," whispered Billy. "Nice knowing ya'" Creak! she pulled the lever. "Bye Billy." she felt her cheek get wet. See ya' later. And Billy was gone. The End
