Thought I’d come back to this story since my story just released and it’s out all by itself!
Mara is now awake from that scary dream and talking about this beautiful town she lives in and talking about a business her mom pushed her to open.
***note this snippet is to fit a 8-10 sentence limit***


Mara’s mother encouraged her to follow her passion for business and helped her open a little cafe she called La Sirena. It was a perfect name for a girl, who’d been obsessed with mermaids, and pretty much anything Fae, but mermaids took the crown. When she was little, she’d seen a movie about a mermaid who came onto dry land to find a boy she saved years earlier. When she finally found the boy, who was now a man, she stayed at his place. There was a scene that stood out in the movie for Mara. The mermaid drew a bath for herself, poured salt in it, pinched her arm and when she stepped into the water her legs disappeared and her tail came back. Mara believed she could manage such a trick, too, but when she tried, disappointment shattered her hopes. She cried for days until she finally realized she could never be a mermaid no matter how much salt she threw in the bath water.

  2. That is a memory I think most women can relate to, though I spent more time calling for Falcor than pretending to be a mermaid.

    “She cried for days until she finally realized she could never be a mermaid no matter how much salt she threw in the bath water.” Love this! It reminds me of my daughter who was so upset one day when she kept being pulled down to earth when she jumped. She couldn’t understand why she wasn’t able to fly. 🙁

      That’s so cute. Kids has such amazing imagination.
