2: Once upon a time on the 13th of Friday, 1896, there was a beautiful mermaid princess named Penelope. She lived alone with her servants and all of her palace under water. She was selfish and mean and lonely with her dog and her sister Polly. Before her mother and father died in a pirate ship raid, they betrothed her to a mermaid prince named Charles.
4: He loved Penelope with all his heart and she hated him. But the sister Polly loved him with all of her heart and thought that Penelope shouldn’t deserve him. She sent the dog to go get her and send her to the garden of Volcanoes.
7: Penelope says “what do you want?” Polly says “you’ll see come with me to my lair.” Penelope was confused and suspicious so she went on with Polly’s plan. What she didn’t know was the Polly was going to kill her!
9: When Penelope see’s the inside she’s amazed with aw, she is in the dazzled and kept looking but Polly continues to talk. “Penelope do you really love Charles?” said Polly. Penelope shuddered “of course why shouldn’t I?” Lying Penelope saw the distress in her face. Polly said “I was afraid you were going to say that…”
10: Before Penelope knew what was going to happen she was all the sudden in darkness and scared. She saw Charles tied to a chair and knocked out. Penelope became stressed and scared to see that they were on top of the volcano! Polly was staring at her with madness.
12: “Polly what are you doing?!” asked Penelope with disbelief in what she was thinking her own sister was about to do… Polly replied “I’m killing you and Charles”. Penelope was right and now crying not for the fact of her and Charles dying but how her own sister would kill her. She saw her with a snicker in her face.
14: “Why would you do this?” said Penelope, Polly laughed like Penelope was a pathetic worthless piece of trash, “Because I loved Charles and you didn’t care the slightest thing about him.” When Penelope heard this she started crying more sympathetic than ever, she told her sister “I am terribly sorry please forgive me! I am not scared of dying but I’m worried for Charles don’t kill him but me”. Penelope realized for once in her life she wasn’t being selfish.
16: But Polly didn’t see and then all the sudden the pony knocked Penelope to the volcano to her death and before she died she screamed “I still love you and forgive you!”
18: Then next was Charles he looked like his life was pointless now but then before she could untie him the pony knocked him over.
20: Then after Polly felt like she was the worst person in the world she said “I shall do this myself and be ashamed” then she killed herself with the agony with her heart forever more.
