Swimming was my life, if I could I would always be in the water.
Maybe that was why I was such good friends with Deanna. She was half mermaid, so she enjoyed swimming just as much as me. We always made swim dates whether for the pool, or the beach.
Of course, Deanna was a better swimmer than me, but I made it my goal to try to (at the very least) keep up with her. I wanted to be the top swimmer in school, by my standards, not just the “human” standards. I wanted to keep up with the merfolk I went to school with.
I wanted to be fast enough to help anyone if there ever came a need, fast enough to jump into action at a moments notice. Yeah, I think I figured it out, I wanna be a lifeguard.
But first… the war through high school, and hormones.
