Amanda don’t worry. Your secret is safe with me and can you turn ME into a mermaid.” “Well, I guess so, but won’t your parent’s come looking?” “No,” I said. “ I’m a foster child.” “Ok, then here we go,” then she began and said, “Do do do. Ya ya ya. Now turn this girl into a mermaid.”
I started to change. My legs were glued together and then I saw a beautiful red tail. I went into the water and started swimming. I look like her. Amanda said that she would tell the story about not having a family to her father so that she would have a sister to play with.
Then I went down with Amanda through coral, all different kinds fish, jelly fish, and seahorses until we got where she lived. Her dad said it was okay. Now, I’m living with my new sister. I spend my days playing with Amanda and I will start mermaid school in 5 days. I have a lot to learn!
