#TeaserTues – Out of the Blue

So I was going to wait to do this but I feel like I have been neglecting my new blog this week so I am going to give you a teaser from my work in progress.

Out of the Blue

Chapter One-Friday

Callisto silently slips through the currents, weaving and bobbing around obstacles in her path. Upon waking, this morning she knew today was the day and her mother’s urging sealed it. Her father was gone on important business so he wouldn’t even know she had left. Today is the day she is starting her new life, the day she will give up being a mermaid to live as a human.

She stumbles up onto the beach, her legs weak and trembling from her transformation. To steady herself, she reaches out to grab one of the posts from the pier. However, she misses and her legs give out completely under her weight. Lying face down in the sand until she finally gains enough strength to roll over. She begins wishfully staring up at the moon wondering if it will keep her secret. When suddenly something blocks its light. It takes her a moment to focus on the obstruction that has blocked her view. It is a man! Squinting she rises to her elbows. She can’t make out anything about him from this angle with the moon backlighting him but he seems extremely imposing.

“Are you okay?” the imposing man inquires.

A nod yes is her only response.

“Do you need help?”

She shakes her head NO.

The man chuckles softly and says, “Well as long as you’re okay. I will leave you to your…adventurous swim.”
