Chapter 11.5
*Stacie's POV*
“Alex, I have a new boyfriend now. Usually when someone becomes single, they have two options to choose from: either stay single or find themselves a new boyfriend. I found myself a new boyfriend, Alex. As far I can tell, he’s been a great boyfriend. Ayden has been here for me through thick and thin. We talk out everything when we have problems; we don’t swim away from them. Ayden shows me everyday how much he loves me. He has gotten to know my family instead of always swimmin...

Chapter 11
*Stacie's POV*
It has been a week since I snapped on my mom. She barely comes in my room to see me, so I haven’t been able to tell her how sorry I am. In a way, I’m glad she hasn’t allowed me to do so, but I miss her. She was the one person I could always trust to be by my side. Now that she’s gone, it’s like she took a chunk of myself with her. Ayden hasn’t left my side, but he’s not the same as my mother. She would always be caring and gentle. Ever since he witnessed me scream at my mom, h...

*Stacie's POV*
“Stacie! We have an intruder! Call the police!” I hear my mom scream snapping me away from Brittany.
“Wait! Don’t do anything! Mom, I know him! He’s my friend! Ayden, watch out! Please don’t get hurt!” I scream racing through the halls.
“Did you say Ayden? Ayden’s here?” Brittany asks following closely behind.
“Ma’am, may I please speak before you hit me with that lamp? I know Stacie. We used to be very good friends four years ago. I saw her earlier today, and we started ca...

Chapter 10
*Stacie's POV*
I’ve made my decision. Now, I just need to put it into action. While I’ve been thinking about what I should do, Ayden has been waiting impatiently in front of me for a response. I don’t know why he hasn’t said anything yet. I’ve been silent for several minutes. I’ve watched him twiddle his fingers, bite his bottom lip, and pat several rhythms on his tail.
The whole time I have been thinking, I have had the chance to look more closely at Ayden. Unbelievably, he’s grown more ha...

*Stacie's POV*
“How could Alex do this to me? How could he break up with me? How dare his parents say he has to? Who do they think they are? The ocean? They’re certainly not the ocean. Ooh, if I ever see them again, I’ll… I’ll… We’ll I don’t know what I’ll do, but they won’t know what hit them that’s for sure,” I say talking to myself as I swim through the vast, open ocean. Feeling everything, all the emotions get to me, I stop swimming immediately falling, kneeling on the ground crying into...

Chapter 9
*Stacie's POV*
Alex’s parents don’t seem too friendly. They acted as if they hated me, and it had only been a few minutes that they had known me. They didn’t even give me a chance before they started judging away. I wonder what they meant by what kind of mermaid I am. There’s only one type of mermaid; the good ones. The only time there was another kind of mermaid ever was when the dark mermaids were around, and that hasn’t been for centuries. Could I be wrong though? Could Alex and his paren...

Chapter 8.5
*Alex's POV*
We wait for half an hour, but my parents never leave. They haven’t checked on me either. What great parents, huh? I guess we should just face them. They’re going to see her sooner or later. Hopefully, they won’t ruin this marvelous relationship for me. I can’t lose, Stacie. They better not screw up. If they really care about me, they’ll let me have this.
“Are you ready?” Stacie asks me.
“Yeah. I’m sorry. I thought surely they would have left by now. They never come home at thi...

*Alex's POV*
“I’m so happy we’re together. I’ve wanted this for a really long time,” I say smiling happily. I honestly am. I’ve thought about Stacie every day for many years. She’s so beautiful. I can’t believe she’s letting me draw her. I can’t believe she was already swimming towards my house when I found her. I wanted to swim to her house and get her. I wanted to show her I can be thoughtful.
“Are you almost done? My hands are kind of hurting. So is my tail,” Stacie says half-smiling. I ...

*Stacie's POV*
“I really enjoyed tonight, Alex.” I smile thinking about our kiss.
“I did, too. We should do it again sometime. I could show you my cave.” Alex smiles back.
“Are we still on for tomorrow?”
“For your picture? Of course! I can’t wait,” Alex replies lighting up. A giggle escapes my lips. Alex’s grin grows bigger.
“Neither can I.” Alex glances at my lips making me excited but at the same time nervous. He leans it; before I know it, my front door is opening as we are centimeter...

*Alex's POV*
“Where are we going?” I ask impatiently. We’ve been swimming for at least an hour. I admit I’m getting tired of all this swimming.
“We’re almost there. We’ll be there in a couple of minutes. I promise,” Stacie says glancing over at me smiling. I sigh while nodding. Stacie looks back ahead, but I can see her frown first. I shouldn’t be so mean to her; I know it’s only making her upset. I know I’ve been distant the past couple hours, but it’s only because she’s been acting strang...

*Stacie's POV*
“Alex?” I quickly say as he is about to swim down the stairs. He quickly stops and glances at me not saying anything. “Um, well, I was wondering if I could take you somewhere? It’s away from here, of course. I’m sure Marissa wouldn’t mind if we did. I don’t know how Nick would feel, but Marissa could probably keep him company in the meantime,” I say hesitantly noticing I am beginning to ramble. I wait in anticipation for Alex to say something.
“But don’t you have to be home s...

Chapter 6.5 Part 1
*Stacie's POV*
For two hours, Alex and I worked on our separate work. We both got much of our work done and are happy because of it. While we worked, we both remained quiet. Half of me hoped he would say something, but the other half hoped he wouldn’t. I can remain calm in the quietness where I am not judged by my words that I struggle so hard to say. With my words, my deepest fears can appear: people will meet the true me and leave me when I need them the most like so many of my friends do....

*Stacie's POV*
“We’re here,” Nick says as we near a huge house.
Marissa and I both stop dead in our tracks as we stare wide-eyed at the magnificent house. No wonder Alex’s parents don’t pay any attention to him. They are too busy working their butts off to afford this house. It’s the biggest house I have ever seen. It isn’t your typical, average house. It’s the type of house millionaires can only afford. I wonder what Alex’s parents do for a living. They obviously do something important tha...

*Stacie's POV*
Twenty five minutes later, Marissa and I are both ready. I’m shocked she was actually able to get us both ready in such a short time. She was able to brush my hair, put make-up on me, and do the same for her. I’ve tried several times to look at myself in a mirror to ease my worrying, but Marissa wouldn’t let me. As soon as she turns away, I will take the chance to look.
“Are you ready?” she asks me obviously excited.
“As ready as I’ll ever be,” I say shrugging my shoulders.

“Here comes your snooty sis,” Marissa says groaning. Brittany is with a few of her friends like always. They’re waiting in front of the school for us. Marissa and I make it in time, so I don’t understand why they are waiting outside.
“What took you so long? We’ve been waiting for you losers for the longest time,” Brittany says almost snarling. Her friends start to laugh.
“We’re on time. What are you doing outside?” I ask in an upset tone.
“You guys aren’t on time. You guys ...

*Stacie's POV*
Marissa and I swim to her house first. She quickly swims inside while I wait outside for her. I don’t like her stepmother; therefore, I don’t want to swim inside only to see her I-hate-everyone face. I mean she doesn’t hate all mer-people. She just hates most of them. The only way she would like you is if you had “I’m rich” tattooed on your forehead. Marissa obviously doesn’t like her either. We both can’t understand why her father would marry her she-devil of a stepmother. I ...

*Stacie's POV*
I’m in shock. Why would Alex ask me if I wanted to come over to his house? It doesn’t make sense. Why would he ask shy, quiet me? I’m not like other girls. What guy would ever ask me to come over? I’m not beautiful like other girls. Geez, Stacie. You’re thinking too much into this. Maybe he just wants to be friends. That has to be it. He only wants to be friends with you. Don’t think anymore of it. There’s no need to get so worked up. But why would he even want to be friends w...

*Stacie's POV*
I have been super paranoid since what happened. It’s only been a day, but still. Every where I look, I see that strange shadow of a person. I have had nightmares about it all last night. When someone calls my name, I freak out. Why would someone scare me like that? I am afraid for my life now. It’s beyond creepy. It kills me knowing what could have happened. Mostly because I know my mom wouldn’t be able to take care of Brittany, Blythe, and Avery by herself.
