Cassie felt the ocean calling her.
Quietly, she slipped through the door, closing it softly behind her.
The beach wasn’t far away, and she walked across the fine sand to the water’s edge, feeling the coolness of the waves caress her skin.
Gracefully, she dove in, feeling as she always did her body change and swell in the sanctuary of Home.
With a flick of her tail, she was under, swimming towards the coral and the underworld of the sea.
She lifted herself onto her favourite rock, her long hair flowing with the current and her tail tucked beside her, totally at peace with her surroundings.
‘Don’t wake her,’ Doctor Simmonds whispered to his colleagues, as once again Cassie was found on the bottom of the empty pool, perfectly posed as the mermaid she thought she was in her dreams.
