Floating on Forever.
She was the bane of my existence.
Walking around, not-so-subtly staring at
the person I, too, secretly longed for.
How dare she?
We had our run-ins and you can bet that I told her what for.
Then, the unthinkable happened.
I was targeted by a mad-man.
Me, a 15 year old, was targeted and I had to leave everything that I knew behind.
I survived for two years on my own.
I left my friends, my family and her...
All the while, she grew some balls
and before I knew it, she was with my mermaid.
I came back though.
For her, I came back.
And without lifting a finger,
I watched that girl ruin everything she'd worked so hard for.
She made a mistake that even I wouldn't dream of, and finally, my mermaid was free.
So, I made it my mission to change.
To show her that I was who she thought I could be all along.
Because she made me better.
I may still feel like I'm drowning, but it's not so bad when you have a mermaid swimming next to you.
