Creature of Fear

August 17, 2020

“It's caught in the net!” First-mate yelled. “Harder!”
    The crew yanked at the ropes, which seemed five times heavier than a normal load of fish. The men were exhausted, but their efforts soon paid off. The net flopped onto the deck as the crew stared wide-eyed at the ensnared creature: its gray skin, seaweed-like hair, and emerald scales shimmered in the sun.
    “That’s no fish..." 
    “We’ve brought the anger of Poseidon against us...”
    “WHAT. IS. THAT?!” Captain bellowed. Silence fell.
First-mate anxiously mopped his forehead as he stepped aside, revealing what lay behind him. His voice shook, "A mermaid.”
